Quinn K. Brunet, Reiki of the Second Degree in the Usui System of Natural Healing, RYT-300
Reiki is also known as "the laying on of hands". A gentle, non-invasive, healing practice that has been integrated into cancer and pre-natal treatment wards in various hospitals including the New-York Presbyterian Hosptial and the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. Shown to be extremely effective in stress reduction and relaxation, Reiki creates an environment for the body's natural healing to take place. With the guidance of a practitioner, the reiki can be channelled to focus the bodies healing energy to certain areas, used to balance the nervous system, emotions and/or chakras, or assess the state of ones wellbeing.
The client remains clothed and the practitioner places their hands either on or hovers above different parts of the body. *Touch is always optional and hand placement is always discussed to respect the receiver's comfort level.*
My practice is centred around creating a safe and comfortable therapeutic environment through strong and respectful communication to support you and your body through your healing process. In my experience over the past two years of working with clients, the ultimate healer is the one receiving treatment, and my role is but to facilitate your path in getting there.
Quinn is a strong-hearted and generally level-headed non-binary human from the queer communities of Montreal. Zie has had various trainings in anti-oppressive based support work, often focusing on mental health, and has volunteered in facilitating safe(r) spaces for marginalized communities.
Quinn moved to Peterborough a little over a year ago to pursue studies in Massage Therapy at Fleming College in hopes to continue integrating alternative healing, such as Reiki, with more mainstream forms of medicine, and to bring mainstream medicine in closer reach to marginalized bodies who, systemically, have limited accessibility.
