Chona has been a Reiki practitioner since 2009. After her first attunement she began her self healing process, enabling her to heal physically and emotionally, and has profoundly impacted her spiritual growth. She received her second Reiki attunement, which strengthened her intuitive abilities. After six years of practicing, she is now empowered to offer this service to others. She hopes to spread the awareness of Reiki to the community as an alternative holistic approach to healing.
