Reiki is an ancient form of healing, promoting wellness in the body as well as on subtler energy levels – including the mental, psychic and emotional.

In Japanese Reiki means Universal Life Force. It is a powerful noninvasive method.

When we experience disease or emotional stress, our life force energy lessens. By giving the body additional nurturing energy – Reiki can help to reduce stress, heal stress related conditions and acute and chronic illnesses.

This energy is accessible to you when you are attuned by a Reiki Master Teacher. I am one.

As you place your hands on specific areas and key energy centers of the person’s fully clothed body, she will receive a gentle infusion of beneficial energy. The effect is one of assisting her in doing whatever healing needs to be done, a balancing of energy and a heightened sense of well-being.

Once you have achieved a Reiki II Degree, you are able to use Reiki in your everyday life to help yourself, your family and friends. It can also be done long distance, on animals and to clear spaces.

Reiki supports all other healing and medical modalities and is an excellent preventive. It deals with the situation in an integral manner and so mind, body and spirit are simultaneously addressed. Psychic information can also come through during these sessions.


Do not book any important event for after the workshops because sometimes they can go over the 5hpm scheduled time.

If you have to travel, we recommend that you book your tickets for the next day.

Reiki Master: Sonia Indigo

Reiki came in my life in a unusual way.

In 2010, the 1st level of Reiki, was offered to me by a friend, Mize Jacinto, who was a Portuguese Reiki Master, after I shared with her a dream I had with her giving me a basket of books and telling me: “It’s time for you to learn!’

In 2013, the 2nd level of Reiki was offered to me again by a friend who, according to her words, had met a very special Reiki Master. As in that time my 1st daughter was a 4 months baby i had no time to contact the teacher. A few days later, the Reiki Master, Mrs Shaloo Tjong, came to knock at my home door, saying: “Someone had payed for your Reiki course and I am here to teach you.”

In 2014, I received the III level and the Master Level of Reiki with the same Reiki Master, and I started to teach immediately after.

My Experience with Reiki started in a very skeptical way, once we can not see the energy flow. After the level II, I spend 6 months giving Reiki for free until I realized what was Reiki truly about. With the experience and feedback of the clients and my own healing, I came to a point where now, I trust in what i am doing and I know that even if we can not see it, Reiki is flowing and it will always work for the highest purpose of the person receiving it.

During the Reiki Workshops I teach and I learn with You as well. As the Indian proverb says:

“The best way to learn is to become a teacher”.

Your questions and your own experiences are a source of wisdom for me and the other students.
