"Marcela's healing hands allowed me to cope with the pain I was experiencing and also helped me become more aware of my body. Her peaceful, centered, non-judgmental nature comes through in her practice and put me at ease. She treats her clients as individuals and tailors the experience to their specific needs. I highly recommend Marcela as a Reiki practitioner. You will be so glad you gave yourself the gift." Jenelle Zinng. Encinitas, CA

"I have received Reiki from a few practitioners before, but Marcela has the kindest hands and most angelic presence that gave me a great peaceful experience and ultimately a very pleasant well being sensation." Claudia Todd. San Diego, CA.

"I am usually ambivalent about alternative paths to healing including Reiki. Marcela was amazing in her work. I was tensed and emotionally exhausted. A Reiki session with her left me in a peaceful place. I went into a nice calming place. That evening I slept so well and felt Zen. Marcela has a gift in Reiki. It was a true pleasure working with her. It made me a believer in Reiki." Zinah Abukhalil. Boston, MA.

"I asked Marcela to do a Reiki session for me the day I came home from the hospital after giving birth to my daughter. After restless nights at the hospital with my newborn and my hormone going crazy, I really needed that session with her. I felt calm, relaxed, and warm inside and out. Next moment, I was asleep. When I woke up, I really felt like I was "home". Thank you so much for your help, Marcela!" Masako Yamaguchi Vint. Boston, MA.

"I have been receiving Reiki treatments from Marcela Alva for six years. I am a Reiki practitioner myself, and have received treatments from other practitioners, so I can sincerely attest to what a unique and wonderful experience a treatment from Marcela is. Marcela is special. She is a very gifted healer; a pure channel for loving, divine energy. A Reiki treatment with her often sends me into a deep state of peace and relaxation. Afterwards I maintain this tranquility while enjoying a sense of renewed energy and the ability to perceive my inner and outer worlds more clearly. A treatment ultimately helps balance my body and emotions into a healthier state of equilibrium, and often results in personal insights into concerns I am dealing with in daily life, as well as more deep-rooted issues. Marcela is also wonderful because of the way she interacts with clients. She is very professional, knowledgeable, caring, and insightful. She immediately makes one feel at ease, and her gift of intuition helps her create a healing session that seems just "made to order" for that particular moment. Marcela is also a wonderful teacher. She is patient, very open to questions, and insightful about many of life's most challenging issues. Marcela has taught me much about healing, and has also given me Feng Shui consultations that have helped me make my home a place that nurtures my body, mind and spirit. I can't say enough about Marcela, and can't think of a more lasting and meaningful gift one can give oneself or a loved-one than a Reiki treatment with her." Eileen O'Connor. New York, NY.
