Hi, my name is Christine Krauss and welcome to The Crow's Healing Nest. I am an Intuitive Consultant, Master Reiki Practitioner and Shaman.
   Reiki is a healing technique based on the principle that the Reiki practictioner channels a universal life force energy  into the client by means of hands on touch,or non touch to activate the natural healing processes of the patient's body in order to restore the physical and emotional well-being.
   Reiki has been part of Japanese culture since 1922. The word Reiki is made up of two Japanese words — Rei which means “God's Wisdom or the Higher Power” and Ki which is “life force energy.” The technique focuses on stress reduction and relaxation to promote healing. 
   It is administered through touch — but does not always need to be — and is based on the idea that an unseen energy flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. Reiki helps a client to get into a state of deep relaxation which allows the clients body to be more receptive to the energy of the universal life force.
   If one's energy is low, then they are more likely to get sick or feel stress which then allows the body to acquire unhealthy physical and emotional pain.Reiki transmutes a persons low energy into positive spiritual energy allowing them to change. Reiki is very beneficial for people that are riddled with high anxiety and depression among other psychological disorders.Reiki can releive the bodys reception of physical pain  can change ones negative thoughts into more positive thoughts, which will change a persons overall spirit.
   What makes the spirit beautiful is our own awareness with the divine creator… that divine creator gave me a body to make beautiful in mind and soul.Reiki helps us become aware of a more powerful energy which allows us to feel that we can change the way our body uses energy into a more positive way allowing us to have control over our  body mind and soul.
   A study done in 2007 by the National Health Interview Survey indicates that 1.2 million adults and 161,000 children received one or more sessions of energy healing therapy such as Reiki in the previous year. According to the American Hospital Association, in 2007 roughly 15 percent, or more 800, American hospitals offered Reiki as part of hospital services.People who have struggled with cancer all of a sudden dont have any after getting reiki  treatments. 
   In my healing work, part of the whole service includes a message from my client’s ancestors or spirit guides. Spirits visit me often for help in guiding their loved ones from the physical plane over to the astral plane. I always know intuitively where my client has a physical problem, so we can target that area. When giving a message, I use my clairvoyant, as well as my clairaudience skills.
   Many people don’t know who their spirit guides are, or how to communicate with them. As a psychic, I connect clients with their guides on a deeper level and receive messages from these guides to help a client take better care of themselves. 
   As a Shaman, I use a technique referred to as defragmentation to work on removing blockages in the physical body. If a client is a having a problem with fears or anxieties in life, that is a problem that can be corrected through a technique that’s referred to as chakra illumination. I can also perform absent healing on a loved one that is distant.
   Some people do not realize that our souls have been experiencing events through many lifetimes and how we behave, and how we feel and what we think, are all symptoms of what our souls have experienced. I use a technique called a “soul retrieval” to heal what they don’t even know needed to be healed so that they can have a better life here and now.
   Remember, beauty is much more than how we look on the outside and true beauty comes from the inside… body, mind and soul. 
The Crow’s Healing Nest is located in the northern Hudson Valley, at the foothills of the Catskill Mountains. We are just a short drive from the Capital District and New York City.

Cat's story...
   "Cancer has a way of teaching us many things. Some things you don’t want to know… the nausea, extreme exhaustion, chemo brain fog and depression so deep it blocks out the sun. It is so mentally and emotionally destructive that you wonder if you will ever function accurately again.
   But along the journey you meet wonderful people who care. You learn who your friends truly are… even those you have never met. Simply put, a friend who cares is a friend with prayers. People with empathy and spirit to pray for strangers for no other reason than the desire to help. 
   With Reiki, I found my energy levels began to regenerate and I found myself again among the living. Confusion and body pains seemed to lessen, as fear slowly melts away and anxiety's edges become less ragged. 
   Reiki is proven through time with successes like mine and others. It is the power of spirit, the direction of energy and emotion united. Balancing the flow, restoring calm and shaping fortitude into a state of wellness."
