"Recovery is different for each individual. Much as the ailments and circumstances surrounding each individual's certain addictions and pain vary.
Recovery for me meant seeking out a support team that established safety, positivity and loyalty. I value each professional, family member and friend who aided me in my recovery and acknowledge that each person had a unique gift to offer. A truly cherished member of my recovery team is Chris Rinaldi.
I had never experienced a Reiki session and didn't have much prior knowledge of the practice before seeing Chris. Being a sensitive being, It did not take long for me to pick up the supportive, healing properties of working with Chris and the power of Reiki.
Chris creates a safe space to be completely vulnerable and open to all possibilities. There is no doubt that the striking similarities and commonalities we have aid in the connection to our higher Reiki energy and allows for clear shifts and healing. It is also Chris' awareness of energetic presence with each session that allows her to cater and address personal needs as they arise.
I am now almost ten months into recovery for an Other Specified Eating and Feeding Disorder that I have had for over half my life. Because of the nature of my disorder, I had an uncanny ability to ignore my body's intuition and just plow through life.
Working with Chris has allowed me space to become more present and aware. I have not only been able to strength my physical being but our work has allowed me to shift my true strength into my spiritual being. I am now becoming more in-tune with what my authentic self desires and how to be true to myself in a way I never was.
Chris is someone that I can be completely myself around. I have never truly found a space judgment- free and safe enough to do so. Having the opportunity to be completely unapologetically myself is one of the most powerful aspects of working with Chris and I truly value the relationship we have." - RC

"Reiki with Chris has helped with my anxiety. My level of depression after the sessions is less then any other kind of treatment. I would recommend Chris to anyone. I feel Reiki is the answer I have looked for in my recovery." - RN
"Chris is a kind and gifted individual. She has a welcoming and non-judgmental presence and truly is able to connect to a genuine empathy. Chris’s insight has been very valuable and I would definitely recommend a consult." - MDC
"Chris Rinaldi changed my life. I know that's a dramatic thing to say, but it's the truth. One session with Chris around a specific issue did more for me than a year of therapy would have, and I'm a therapist who believes deeply in the
efficacy of therapy. She was able to see and then say outloud something I didn't realize I wanted so badly. As soon as she put words to it, I knew it was time to take action. I've been working with her monthly since then to help
maintain balance and as a part of my own self-care. I can't recommend Chris enough." - AP

"Working with Chris has been an incredible experience for me. Her talents are so natural and abundant-warmth that engages disparate groups of people, perception that makes others receptive to her message, and wisdom that gently challenges one to grow- that her healing appears effortless. Of the many individuals I 've come in contact with, Chris' example is what I most strive to emulate." -CB
