Shamanic Energy Medicine

In November 2019 Mariah will be attending a 300 hour Shamanic Energy Medicine certification at the Los Lobos Lodge in Olume, Chile. The course is hosted by the Four Winds Society, featuring medical anthropologist Alberto Villoldo, who has studied with indigenous shamanic cultures of the Andes and the Amazon for over 25 years. The course is a holistic approach to healing by working with the luminous energy field, and establishing a balance within the mind and body.

The Four Winds Society offers the world’s most in-depth training in shamanic energy medicine, along with cutting-edge nutrition, biology and neuroscience. Combining ancient wisdom traditions and modern science, you learn to offer true holistic health options to your clients.

Mariah looks forward to bringing her knowledge to the healing community in the Bahamas.


Mariah was certified in the traditional Japanese Usui Shiki Reiki Ryoho Shoden (Usui System of Natural Reiki Healing First Degree) by Reiki Master Mychal A. Bryan.

What is Reiki?

To put it simply, Reiki is a touch-healing, stress-reducing technique.

"Reiki brings us sacred relaxation. Through Reiki, we have an opportunity to let loose the bondage of limiting physical, mental and emotional conditioning. The Reiki practitioner holds a healing space physically through their hands and inwardly through their presence. In this way the recipient can return to their original homeostasis and balance" - Mychal A. Bryan, Reiki Master

What are the BENEFITS of a Reiki Treatment?


    • Oftentimes in a Reiki treatment, you’ll notice your brain start to “shut off”. The mental chatter seems to disappear and you’re able to be in a state of “being” instead of “doing”.


    • We spend so much time operating within the Sympathetic Nervous System (fight or flight), that stress and anxiety become the “norm”. Reiki helps us go back to the Parasympathetic Nervous System (rest and digest) and into our self-healing mode


    • Reiki helps bring us to homeostasis or balance of the body’s systems and of our emotional being.


    • While there is no guarantee you will be healed of whatever is ailing you though a Reiki treatment, we do know that when the systems of the body are in balance, the body is able to better heal itself. Reiki assists you to return to your natural state, this means your breathing, heart rate and blood pressure improve. As you find yourself in a deeper state of relaxation, you move into Parasympathetic Nervous System dominance


    • Reiki can heal mental and emotional wounds and can alleviate mood swings, fear, frustration and even anger. In doing so, Reiki can then help to strengthen and heal personal relationships.


    • Often clients will find they have the best night’s sleep after a Reiki session. When we’re relaxed, we sleep better, our bodies heal better and we think more clearly. It is not uncommon for clients find themselves in a state of deep, yet alert sleep during a Reiki session.


    • Reiki is a wonderful compliment to conventional medicine and helps relax patients on the levels of the mind and physical body. When a patient is relaxed the healing process is accelerated. Reiki is safe to use if you have medical conditions such as epilepsy, diabetes or heart conditions. You may receive Reiki treatments if you are undergoing chemotherapy. Pregnant woman can have Reiki treatments to support them through all stages of the pregnancy.
