Self-care during this Coronovirus Outbreak: Try a Distant Healing and Angel Life Coaching Treatment

Dear clients,

During this coronavirus outbreak, when social distancing is required to prevent transmission, my studio is closed for in-person treatments.

However, I am able to offer distant Reiki healing (or Arcturian healing) and angel life coaching sessions to you. This will allow you to keep up with your self-care and manage your anxiety and fear. In a distant healing treatment, I use a proxy (or substitute) to represent you during the session that helps to connect us energetically, along with a special distant healing Reiki symbol, which allows me to send the energy to someone in another geographic location. This is quantum theory-based energy healing. When I teach this method to my Level 2 Reiki students, they are always amazed that they can sense energy and obtain other information from an empty massage table. My clients who receive these treatments note their efficacy and are amazed at what we both sense during a session. As noted above, I can also do the distant healing session with Arcturian healing energy if you prefer.

In my studio, I set up the room just like I would for an in-person Reiki treatment. I place a picture of you or your address on the pillow and go through all the same steps and hand positions that I normally do. Most of my clients combine this with an angel life coaching session, with their treatment including a 45-minute Reiki session and a 15-minute angel life coaching session. I sense and receive all the same information that I do in an in-person treatment. As part of the angel life coaching session, you also get a guided mini card reading.

On your end, you would set a time when you can relax and tune into the energy. We will schedule a short chat before the session begins to discuss how you have been since I last saw you and what your intention for the session is. Then you can lay down for an hour and just see what you sense during the session. Then after the session, just like an in-person session, you will receive detailed notes about where there were blockages and what else I sensed about your energy body in the Reiki session.

For the angel life coaching session, you will get notes indicating which guides were present, what their key messages were. You also get a guided mini-card reading, where I am told by my guides to pick from certain decks and am told what the card for that deck represents and then I send you a picture of the card and the meaning behind the card (based on the booklet that comes with the deck of the cards).

So, if you are interested in some amazing self-care in the face of this outbreak that doesn’t require you to leave your home, this is a wonderful opportunity to try a distant healing and angel life coaching treatment. Many of my clients find that they do sense energy and other sensations during the session and find it as effective as an in-person session.

A 1-h session is $100 and a link for payment is provided below. If you just want a short 30-min Reiki only distant healing session you can book that as well (for $75). Payment is required 24-h before your appointment time. Contact me at to book your appointment.


Treatment Description

Reiki is an ancient Japanese holistic, light-touch, energy-based modality. Reiki re-establishes a normal energy flow of life force energy in the body, which in turn can enhance and accelerate the body’s innate healing ability.  The treatment focuses on balancing energy in the energy centers of the body (called chakras).

The type of Reiki I practice is called Unified Reiki, which represents a combination of Usui Reiki and Tera Mai Reiki.   I have completed all four levels of Unified Reiki and am a Reiki Master, which allows me to perform attunements and teach Reiki to others, in addition to giving treatments.  I have completed the Canadian Reiki Association (CRA) practicum requirements and am a certified Reiki practitioner and Reiki teacher.

The cost for Reiki treatments are outlined below. Payment options are cash, cheque, credit card, Pay Pal, or e-transfer.  Payment through PayPal or e-transfer must be made before 24 h before your appointment begins. E-transfer payments can be sent to

Treatment Options

I can tailor an in-person Reiki treatment to your needs and include traditional energy balancing/blockage removal, as well as specialized treatments (e.g., breaking habits or ties to old relationships, people, situations that are no longer of use to you).  I also incorporate the use of plant essences, healing sounds, guided meditations/visualizations, and Reiki-charged crystals in my treatments.    A standard treatment is 1 hour long. I also perform distant healing treatments, which involve  sending Reiki energy to a person in a different geographic location.   A standard distant healing treatment is 1/2 h long.

I am an intuitive healer and use information I receive and sense to guide and direct the treatment. I do also receive a stream of intuitive guidance during sessions and give you the client the option of receiving the messages that come through by adding on an Angel Life Coaching Session or Card Reading (I am certified for both).  You can also of course choose to have a standard Reiki session which does not include channeled guidance.  Most people, however, do find information received resonates deeply with them and is helpful and healing.

What to Expect during a Reiki Session

IMG_20120819_155857The treatment take place with you lying down comfortably on a massage table. For most of the session you will be lying on your back.   I will scan your body to see if I sense any blockages, then I will work just above your body or with light touch on each of your 7 main chakras on the front of your body.  Then I will work down your arms and legs, to your feet, and finish the session by balancing the 7 chakras along your back.   People generally find the treatments very relaxing, soothing and rebalancing.

The experiences of people receiving Reiki energy vary.  You may feel temperature changes (cold or heat) coming from my hands, pulsing or tingling sensations, or you may feel nothing at all.  You can trust that the Reiki energy is going where it is needed regardless of what you experience.

Reiki energy works harmoniously with all other wellness/medical treatments and can help with healing your mental, physical, emotional issues.  It is strongly recommended that you do not discontinue any medications or treatments you are currently receiving, without discussing it with the wellness/medical practitioner who is guiding your treatments/care.

Recent Testimonials

“I count myself as blessed to have had the opportunity to work with Melanie over this past year receiving both distance Reiki and Arcturian Healing and Angel Life Coaching sessions. I feel that Melanie is a profoundly skilled and gifted healer and that her intuitive awareness and capacity to provide meaningful guidance is without question. Melanie has been a wonderful resource to me during a difficult and trying time in my life and I humbly thank her for her empathy, kindness, and sincerity. When one feels so lost and confused in this world we often need to turn to others for compassion and direction and there could not be a better choice in my opinion than Melanie.”

“I found Melanie’s name and website over a year ago during a search for an energy healer on the north shore and I have never looked back! She introduced me to Reiki energy, which really resonates with me. Along with attending regular healing sessions with Melanie, I have taken her Reiki Level 1 training and regularly do self-healing. This integrates with my daily meditation practice. I consider Melanie a wise mentor and coach in my spiritual development. She is an authentic, ethical, caring healer and the messages she transmits from my guides are extremely useful and encouraging – life changing, really. I feel better grounded and happier than I have ever been in my life. My connections with other people are greatly improved, especially with family members. Melanie is a warm and welcoming person – meet with her and see what good things happen in your life :)”

“I was introduced to Reiki (and Melanie) through a friend a few years ago. The location is easy to get to, with ample street parking. The treatment room is calming and tranquil. I loved getting Reiki so much that I ended up taking course there as well. Reiki share’s with fellow students are great. Melanie is knowledgeable and gifted. I feel blessed to have been led there. Best part of Reiki is that I can just lay there and receive. Self-Reiki has become a regular part of my life, and regular sessions at Just Breathe Reiki are a regular part of my wellness routine. To all you curious ones….I highly recommend you give it a try! Blessings!!”

“With all the available Reiki practitioners in the Vancouver area, I feel so blessed and grateful to have found Melanie. Her treatments are so unique as she is not only able to identify and clear energy blockages, but she gives insightful and compassionate advice as to why certain blocks are present. I always leave our sessions feeling clear and focused. Having a session with Melanie is like peering into your own subconscious mind – she identifies (with stunning accuracy) certain behavioural patterns and challenges present in your current life. Her insights never ceases to amaze me. Thank you Melanie for your compassionate healing.”

“I started seeing Melanie for Reiki treatments and Angel Coaching in order to deal with issues related to work and simply life in general. I found her approach to be sincere, gentle and compassionate. Trust was established very easily and for me, that is no ordinary task. Melanie has given me many tools to use in my life in order to control stress and to see the magic in life itself. I was extremely honoured when she invited me to join in her Level 1 Reiki class. It takes place over a few weeks so that one is given time to absorb the information being presented. I found that this approach was ideal for my learning needs. In class, her information is outlined logically and completely and for me, this approach further reinforced my trust in her and allowed me to process the information effectively. Class size is small which allows for friendly and intelligent instruction and discussion in a non-threatening environment. I trust and value Melanie completely. I am extremely thankful that she is a part of my life’s path.”

“Just Breathe Reiki is a tranquil place to experience the healing power of Reiki. Melanie is an accomplished practitioner with a calm, professional manner and she really knows her work. I leave my sessions feeling energized and comfortable. It is always an excellent experience and I have seen positive results from my treatments.”
