Rickie Freedman, owner of Reiki by Rickie, has always believed that when something is part of our path and purpose in life, we are drawn along toward it each step of the way. She began her professional career as a physical therapist before being introduced to Reiki nearly 20 years ago. Now, as a successful Reiki Master/Teacher, she is happily moving on to the next phase in her Reiki career.
This month, Freedman opened Reiki by Rickie – ReikiSpace & Learning Place, a center offering Reiki sessions and unique therapeutic massage such as Indian head massage and chakra foot massage; classes; meeting space and more. “I had this vision of what I wanted this space to be, and once I started putting the energy out there, it just manifested,” she says. “It’s unique, professional, warm and nurturing. It creates a whole Reiki experience. It’s very exciting.”
The new location provides a Quiet Room so that individuals can go from a healing space to a place of relaxation. “Clients often told me they craved time to stay and take it all in after a session,” notes Freedman. “The room has recliner chairs, blankets and magazines that people can snuggle in and relax for as long as they’d like. It’s a way to make the transition much more gentle.”
Students and practitioners trained by Freedman can use the center as a peaceful and healing space for them to begin their Reiki practice and gain supervised experience in a mentoring environment.
Freedman says she hopes to continue raising awareness about Reiki and its benefits in a very grounded and relatable way. In addition to conducting Reiki classes at all levels, she conducts monthly workshops and hosts monthly ReikiShares and other gatherings designed to bring like-minded groups together sharing positive energy.
“I love what I’m doing. I work a lot of long, hard hours, but it’s my passion. This is my life’s work, not just something I do,” says Freedman. “I am able to witness the awesome transformations in people everyday—in clients and in students. It’s very humbling.”
