When I first heard of Reiki, I was very skeptical. The first time I was expecting nothing, but when it was through, I felt so calm and at peace with my life. It is very hard to put into words what it made me feel like, but it was like my body and mind had been wrapped in a warm blanket. I felt what you could describe as vibrations and lots of purple and green colors danced on the ceiling above me. There was no possible way to deny that there was something going on. By the end I felt such a huge release, like horrible thoughts and emotions I had been having were somehow addressed and then swept away... even my scientific and logic seeking mind couldn't explain.
After arthroscopic knee surgery I had Reiki performed several times. During the Reiki I experienced a very warm sensation around my knee and lessening of the pain. I was skeptical and reluctant to have the treatment at all. I can't find a rational or scientific explanation, but, nevertheless, it helped. Since that first experience I have had Reiki for some back pain and again after a second knee surgery.
In December of 2010, I experienced a relapse of my Multiple Sclerosis. Along with traditional medical treatment I chose to seek out alternative therapy. This decision led me to Reiki. Reiki helped me feel more relaxed and centered, allowing my body to heal more efficiently.

About me

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.

Denise is dedicated to helping you to achieve a balanced state using Reiki, essential oils a calming environment and a nurturing approach.

I have had the pleasure of knowing Denise for the past 4 or 5 years now, beginning as a recipient of her wonderful healing to becoming a recipient of her teachings, as my Reiki Master. Denise is very warm and kind; qualities that drew me in and made me feel safe, relaxed and confident as I engaged in something new and very “outside of my box”. I am forever grateful that I pursued the opportunity to work with her…she is full of light and positive energy, is very open and supportive, making her a fantastic teacher and a great friend. I would highly recommend Denise to anyone looking for a healing experience, or seeking to learn more about the wonderful world of Reiki.
I have serious issues sleeping, in every way possible. Getting up 6-8 times a night, having very vivid dreams and can't wake up in the morning. Just one Reiki session makes a world of a difference. I sleep more soundly, dream less frequently, and wake up feeling great, not like I just ran a marathon. I also suffered from sciatic pain for weeks and tried everything: pain relievers, stretching, the works, but one Reiki session and I haven't had the pain since, and it's been months!
​I met Denise a few years ago as I re-entered the wonderful world of practicing Reiki after many years away and she welcomed me to her Reiki Share like a friend, immediately putting me at ease. I would like the world to know what a wonderful loving, caring and beautiful soul Denise Jester is...not to mention how talented she is in her multifaceted career. She is an RN and a highly intuitive, gifted Reiki Master and Instructor. Denise has magic in her hands and she follows her heart; what more could you ask for when you wish to be aided in healing or learning? I can truly recommend Denise Jester and know with all my heart that if you have the chance to work with Denise you should hold onto that chance with both hands.
