what is Reiki?

Reiki is an energy healing modality originating in Japan in the early 20th century. Reiki can aid in self-transformation, ease physical discomfort, work through and process emotional pain, facilitate a spiritual experience and ultimately bring relaxation.


Anew Reiki is in the Usui Reiki lineage.

Reiki does not require physical touch, but can include touch if the client consents and wishes.

A feeling of deep relaxation and connectedness is part of the Reiki experience in the present, and transformation can unfold in the days afterwards.

The chakra system is often used within Reiki to describe where energy is flowing, focused, stuck, blocked, weak, strong and/or active.

Creating goals and intentions together, through collaboration is ideal to the Reiki process. What we discover could come to us as visual, audible, metaphorical, symbolic, elemental, magical, physical, ancestral and/or spiritual messages.


Anew Reiki has a commitment to challenging cis-hetero patriarchal, racist, able-ist, femme-phobic, fat-phobic, capitalist notions of how bodies, minds and daily routines should look.

Anew Reiki will not be able to help you lose weight, make money

and/or bring romantic love into your life.

Reiki can help begin a path toward developing healthy relationship with your body, tuning in to how it guides you.

Reiki can help us notice where and how life experiences are creating physical ailments.

Reiki can give insight into self-limiting beliefs, and how to shift those beliefs.

Reiki can help develop self-love and pathways towards self-love that can teach us about sharing love.

Reiki can help develop boundaries and intentions in current and future

friendships, familial relationships, work relationships and romantic partnerships.


Anew's Reiki practitioner is named Ana Norell and they are a certified Reiki Master Teacher.

In their practice, they focus on ancestral connecting, movement and bodily awareness, mindfulness, creative envisioning, translating messages from spirits, self-empowerment, grounding, boundaries, and pondering anti-oppressive, non-culturally appropriative spiritual practices.


Upon attending a group Reiki meditation on the night of their birthday in 2014,

Ana's experience shifted drastically.


Life cracked open and there were many changes made in the months and years that followed: facing and releasing

destructive and self-destructive patterns, stepping into authentic identity, creating a more aligned lifestyle, enacting new habits, deepening work with spirits, developing boundaries and communication in relationships, working through trauma and building trust with their self.

Self-healing, personal growth and accountability continue to be a part of Ana's daily personal energy work practice.

Ana studied Reiki under Courtney Cobbs and Tiffany Ketchmark. Their first introduction to ancestor work was with Kimberley M. Harmon. Ana has also studied elemental magic and ancestral connection with Maeanna Welti.

Ana is currently in graduate school, studying to be a Clinical Mental Health Counselor and Art Therapist.


After my first ever reiki session with Ana I became convinced of the efficacy and value of the healing practice. I felt definite shifts in energy throughout my body and mind as well as “colors” that eased me towards a path of healing.” — Bunny

Ana is a gifted reiki practitioner. They are open, caring, and nonjudgmental. While laying on Ana's table, I have experienced profound and healing sensations and imagery that have stayed with me. Each time I leave Ana's table, I go into the world more clear and prepared to meet both my joys and challenges. I would recommend Ana to anyone, but particularly women, queers, and people of color, because they understand systemic oppression and the way they can manifest in daily life.” —  Ruby

My reiki session with Ana was truly mind opening.  I left the session with a new perspective on healing the inner working of my chakras. Their touch and energy is truly a gift. I couldn’t recommend them more.” — Guillermo

I was rather impressed by how Ana was willing to have an open discussion about an energy blockage and how to address it directly. They are so kind and sweet, reaffirming my own journey to alignment and peace.” — Carmen

“The care and intuitive nature that Ana possesses as a healer gives me a great sense of safety that has allowed me to dive into new ways to approach working with balancing myself as a whole being. They tune into the imagery that I use myself and it feels deeply personal. Working at a distance and in-person with Ana has a gentle power that feels inviting and sacred. If you are seeking someone to work with in your journey, I highly recommend Ana.” — Cassidy
