I am a Usui / Holy Fire® Karuna® Reiki Master/Teacher, a shamanic energy healing practitioner, and energy medicine practitioner.

I continually seek to expand my knowledge. My experience includes the chakra system, creative visualization, intuitive energetic healing, Eden Energy Medicine, and more, with a focus on the links between our minds, bodies, emotions, and spirits.

I had a great experience with my first reiki treatment. I didn’t know what to expect, but could tell Melissa knew what she was doing and knew how to relax the body and focus in stressed areas that needed extra help. I felt tension ease and, in the specific area where I had been feeling a lot of pain, Melissa concentrated the treatment in that area and it started feeling very warm and tingly. I would recommend this to anyone – it is a wonderful treatment for your body and very relaxing and healing.

Melissa does an awesome job of channeling Universal Life Energy during a Reiki session with her. I experienced, in the midst of the wonderful peacefulness, a renewal and increase in motivation for accomplishing a specific goal I desire. Her dedication and love for humanity definitely comes through. I highly recommend the experience to everyone!

D.R., South Carolina says...

I have known Melissa Kitchings for almost six years and have come to regard her as one of the most grounded, centered people I know. She is a healer, has calm though vibrant energy, and takes her work very seriously.

Melissa has given me Reiki treatments for the last four years, and I find them relaxing, energizing, and centering. She has the ability to “feel” trouble spots and disturbances in a person’s energy. She has also worked on my daughter, my boyfriend, and his two teenaged daughters. Her assessments have always been accurate, and the sessions always leave me feeling a little stronger and more whole.

She felt so much crazy teenaged energy with the young girls, that she bought journals for both of them and wrote them special notes based on what she sensed during their sessions. The girls responded to the session and to that personal touch in a very positive way.

Not only is the treatment good for people, but Melissa also treated one of my dogs when he was quite ill. He loved her touch so much that when she worked on me, he would sit on her feet as she moved around the table.

I highly recommend Melissa due to her personality, aptitude, compassionate nature, and calming energy. She is truly a healer.
