TESTIMONIALS FOR MARY MINOW and EXPRESSREIKI
"My husband and I are both in our seventies and have numerous health issues. I recently had an accident and had been suffering from hip and knee pain. And my husband had pain and limited movement in his knee, neck, and shoulder. We didn’t have a lot of knowledge and were very skeptical about alternative medicine.
Our friend David explained to us the principles of Reiki healing and highly recommended Mary. After only ONE phone session improvement in both of us was both surprising and undeniable. Pain in my hip subsided significantly, and my husband is now able to walk downstairs and his neck pain is gone.
Thank you so much, Mary."

"I did not know much about Reiki before meeting Mary, besides it being a form of alternative medicine that professed to use the patient’s own “life-force” to heal various ailments from chronic disease to acute aches and pains.
Scientifically trained, I’m a bit of a sceptic but experience teaches one to keep an open mind. Also, more than 40 years of Tai Chi and Taoist therapeutic exercise has convinced me that few of the answers to life’s little mysteries fit into conventional pigeonholes.
Mary was part of a small group of pilgrims walking the Camino from Porto, Portugal, to the beautiful Cathedral de Santiago de Compostela, in Galicia, northern Spain. During a communal meal by way of an introduction the evening before we set out, she offered Reiki to any of the group who felt the need.
I’d arrived in Portugal with the beginnings of a head-cold -- the first for a few years and a gift from my young grandson -- and Mary offered to help.
She admitted she had not had much experience with the common cold, but she gave it a try.
It worked. It worked profoundly and completely.
The pressure in my sinuses disappeared, my airways cleared, and, most striking for me, there was zero migration of the infection to my upper respiratory tract (the usual outcome colds in my experience).
Now, whether or not the effects of Mary’s administrations were the result of a placebo effect, or her activating my body’s Chi which gave my immune system a helpful jolt, I don’t know. And frankly, it doesn’t matter. Her Reiki saved me from several days of a miserable cold.
Worth noting that during the group’s pilgrimage up the coast of Portugal and across Galicia, Mary worked with most of the group and we all found relief from her healing: feet, knees, hips and tired bodies all feeling better because of ExpressReiki!
The final outcome then is a resounding recommendation for Mary as a healer."

"I called Mary for remote healing for high blood pressure. We did a telephone session and I felt rested and increase of energy. Later I stopped hearing the sound of pulse in my head. The next day I felt comfortable enough to go to the gym and discovered that my routine workout became easier, and I increased the time of workout. Thank you so much, Mary! " -- MR
"I usually don’t write reviews/testimonials but this time I felt a strong urge to share my experience. Hopefully, someone in need will benefit. At a crossroads in my life, while I was suffering from the array of physical and emotional pains, the friend of mine recommended me to connect with Mary, Reiki healer. I was kind of skeptical about Reiki, especially about the long distance treatment. But being desperate, I decided to give it a try – so I called Mary.
It definitely was a blessing for me. For a few months until I started to feel steadily better - Mary was there for me. She was doing distance healing– and every time after the healing session somehow miraculously I was feeling better. It was not an instant change – more like a slow healing process but it WORKED! I have never seen Mary in person but I knew that somewhere far away there is someone for me – Mary, my healer, my friend and my confidante.
I feel blessed that at difficult time of my life I met Mary. I think she was sent to me from above. In our days, there are so many healing practioners but just a few of them have a gift. I have no doubts that Mary has it. Mary is gifted, natural, passionate and intelligent healer and I absolutely love having her in my life. As always, THANK YOU SO MUCH Mary. -- With gratitude" -- M.R.S.
"Mary has given me both in person and remote expressreiki sessions. I was experiencing some back/shoulder strain, and could immediately feel a shifting and rebalancing of my back when she worked with me in person. We have worked together by phone effectively, but what really surprised me is one day I could feel the shifting in my back when we weren’t on the phone. I had given her permission to work on me remotely without the phone, and that worked well too. I can’t explain it, but all that matters is that I can feel a definite improvement in my body."
"After a difficult few days of UTI pain, I asked Ms. Minow if her Reiki healing would relieve it. After a brief session, the pain was gone and remained gone. It was amazing. [And dumbfounding.]
I don’t know how it works, but it does. One thing that I think helped the process is that, under her direction, I was able to focus on keeping my mind open and free in order to facilitate the Reiki healing intervention. The dynamics of the process is now beyond our knowledge but our experience presents a reality that cannot and should not be ignored by science."

"Mary's powerful distance Reiki energy saved a long-planned-for trip to San Francisco. The day before my trip, I was hit with intense plantar fasciitis pain. Travel day was a challenge, as was the long day of walking to get to the hotel. I contacted Mary the next day in a bit of a panic as there were two more days of lots of walking ahead. Her distance Reiki energy brought almost immediate relief and the rest of the trip was an absolute delight. She even followed up with a post-trip tune-up, and I am well on my way to being pain-free. Gratitude times a thousand."
Our cat Jasmine is sending her love to you. From the DAY you took care of her, from thousand of miles away, without ever having met her, she bounced back. For weeks. she could not walk more than a couple of steps at a time after a very bad fall. Within hours joy was there again and within days she started to get back to herself. She has now fully recovered. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts."
I've been a library law consultant for over twenty years. This is a new sideline that I find to be remarkably fulfilling. Together, libraries and reiki help our minds, bodies and spirits.
I am a certified Reiki Master. My technique comes from a combination of Reiki and other energy based healing studies. Twenty years ago my cousin healed my hands using Chi Gong. In 2018 and 2019 I was lucky enough to receive some training from the Chi Gong master who taught my cousin. I incorporate some of this Spring Forest Chi Gong as well. And then there is the give and take with the client that helps inform me about what is needed for that particular scenario.

I offer a short session so it's not that big a deal to give it a try. It often works pretty quickly, hence "express reiki." Once your energy is unblocked, you are likely to continue to improve on your own. Tuneups are available with me if you like.
