Ana is a Usui Holy Fire III Reiki Master and personal growth enthusiast who is fascinated by the way our physical bodies are integrally connected to our thoughts and emotions.
Before beginning her Reiki practice, Ana received her B.S in Biology at Warren Wilson College in Swannanoa, NC and then spent the next 7 years training, performing and teaching Aerial Circus Arts. Teaching Circus allowed Ana to experience first-hand the healing and empowerment that occurs when people unlock their emotions and share their personal stories through expressive movement. Ana's love for facilitating deep "whole self" healing is what inspired her to start practicing Reiki.
Reiki addresses healing on every level; physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual, by cleansing and balancing the life force energy that underlies and flows through all these aspects. Ana likes to describe Reiki as, "The practice of intentionally creating a time and space in which the body is flooded with all of the energetic resources it needs to heal itself."
