Intuitive Touch Reiki is dedicated to helping you to achieve a balanced state using Reiki, essential oils a calming environment
Denise is a Reiki Master Teacher and has had a practice in Pittsfield since September 2010. She is also a registered nurse, a profession that she began in 2002 when she felt called to leave her work as a WIC Program nutritionist and delve into a career where she could do more hands-on work in the health field. She has always had an interest in helping people to become healthier and more balanced.
When Denise first became initiated in Reiki 5 years ago, she immediately thought, “I have to bring this to the patients”. That became her new passion and she had continued to pursue and finally attain this goal. After becoming a Level 1 Reiki practitioner, Denise moved to Level 2 within 3 months and shortly afterwards, she opened her own studio in Pittsfield.
Since reaching the level of Reiki Master Teacher, Denise has initiated over 50 students to the wonderful healing art of Reiki. In 2013, she launched a Patient Reiki Program at a local hospital. Currently, Reiki trained volunteers visit patients both at the hospital and at a Cancer and Infusion Center to provide Reiki treatments. Denise has also designed and implemented a Reiki study; she has collected data to measure the effects of Reiki on pain, anxiety and nausea. She is currently working on publishing this study and she will post a link to the publication here when available.
In November of 2011, Denise was introduced to Young Living Essential Oils. These pure, organic, therapeutic grade oils have a quality that far exceeds that of the perfume grade oils seen in most stores. Because of the pure integrity of these oils, their potency excels and they produce excellent results. Denise uses these oils in her practice regularly. She also offers the Raindrop Technique using nine of these beautiful oils.
In 2015, Denise began training on tuning the human biofield using tuning forks. This is done with using tuning forks in your aura where we can hold blockages in our energy that result from experiences we have had in our lives. Clearing up these blockages result in helping you feel more balanced and more energized. This is because the previously held up energy in your aura is returned to your body through your chakras. It is fascinating work inspired and taught by Eileen Day McKusick.
In the fall of 2016, Denise began her journey in working toward certification in holistic nursing. This will be yet another way to advance holistic education and practice in her community.
