All-Natural, Continuous Healing

Located in Brooklyn, New York, Reiki in Brooklyn with Marta Hernández is a pioneering force in the world of Reiki healing. Allow me to share my own testament of its proven therapeutic wonders. 


My Father

When my father was diagnosed with cancer, I wanted to travel back to Seville (Spain), my home town,  and be more than a gentle witness to his condition. Around that time, I became acquainted with the work of Barbara Brennan, a well-known healer and scientist, through her book Hands of Light. More importantly, I learned about her through different practitioners and my experience with them as both receiver and curious learner.

The Power of Reiki

Since then, I started being more exposed to different alternatives to traditional medicine practices such as acupuncture, reflexology, and hypnotherapy. But in the back of my mind, I wanted to learn something that I could impart to my father quickly. That was my true motivation. Once I discovered Reiki, I started giving it to my father on a daily basis for a month. I also offered it to my mother, the main caregiver who has been supporting my father since the day he fell sick.

Positive Results

Even after all the chemotherapy sessions, my father did not display any side effects. He did not lose his appetite and even put on 15 pounds during the time I spent with him. He could sleep soundly and his mood improved. This also affected my mom, who became happier and more relaxed. Ultimately, our relationship as a family deepened.


Undying Legacy

On August 10, 2008, my father passed away. I am grateful to have been able to spend together his last days on earth, helping him with the transition. To be honest, I do not know how I would have coped without Reiki. I will never forget his smile and relief every time I would ask him "Papá, un Reiki?" I believe it was the gentle touch that soothed him and brought him the peace he was longing for. It is for this very reason that my father will be always be connected to my Reiki practice. He also made me very sensitive to patients who live with serious health issues. I know now that this was his beautiful legacy to me, along with his love for music.
