Alicia Mishinski

My name is Alicia Mishinski. I am a 2012 graduate of HACC’s licensed massage therapy program and Usui Reiki Master. I provide a combination of therapeutic and relaxation massage customized to each individual clients’ needs. I have a great love for nature, animals, music and the arts. In my spare time I enjoy yoga, meditating, crafting, reading and being with family and friends.

I currently offer a full range of healing modalities and accompaniments such as custom massage, sound therapy, craniosacral therapy, and Reikissage – an organic blend of Reiki and massage exclusively at ReikiSpace. My practice follows the continuation of my spiritual path, living the values of kindness and compassion, while bringing peace and healing to others.


Cheri Koons, RN, BSN, LMT, RM

Cheri is an experienced integrative Registered Nurse, Licensed Massage Therapist, and Reiki Master. She has personally experienced and professionally witnessed the positive effects of Reiki for humans and animals. She has lived a holistic lifestyle since growing up on her family’s dairy farm in Maryland, and has always known her calling in healthcare for humans and animals.

During nursing school at Hagerstown Junior College, she learned holistic modalities, including massage therapy, and conventional care models while working at a local trauma center as a Certified Nursing Assistant. Within a year after graduation Cheri accepted a position with the National Cancer Institute of NIH, specializing in oncology/immunology and critical care nursing.

As a military wife, the next several years brought various personal and professional experiences working in different hospitals on the east coast. Cheri earned her BSN from Virginia Commonwealth University while simultaneously achieving Board Certification in Vascular Nursing. During this same time, a health issue required treatment and she bridged holistic specialists with conventional primary care to create a multidisciplinary care team. This experience created her passion to one day work in an integrative care center helping others benefit from combined holistic and conventional care modalities.

Cheri further prepared for her dream by graduating in Holistic Nursing from The BirchTree Center for Healthcare Transformation, and in Massage Therapy from Harrisburg Area Community College. After years of education and life experiences, Cheri has evolved into living Reiki with daily self-care and sending Reiki to others.


James Hakes

James is a Usui Reiki Master Practitioner. His passion for helping others helped lead his way to practicing Reiki. James's life has been transformed by his experiences with Reiki and he believes in sharing the lessons and unconditional love that he has found since making Reiki a part of his life. One of the greatest gifts that Reiki has brought him is "the ability to love and appreciate myself."

He is a student of spirituality and life. He is personally continuing his education and training in a variety of fields, and he hopes that the learning never ends.

Lisa DiVittore

Lisa is a Reiki Master Practitioner. She is also certified in Reiki Voice, Foot Reflexology and in Angel Card/Angel Tarot Card Reading. Lisa’s interest in Reiki, natural healing and the energy that surrounds us began with her first reiki session. “I was introduced to Reiki at a very low point in my life. That first Reiki session was an emotional release. I was able to begin the process of letting go. Years of stress, anxiety and tension began to fade and allowed space in my life for joy again.”

Lisa now wants to share that joy with everyone. Nothing makes her happier than watching her client’s stress fade away during a session. Lisa’s wish is that Reiki will change her clients’ lives, as it has helped to change her life for the better. “I am a much happier woman and have a better ability to handle life’s challenges, little or big! I love sharing Reiki with others and talking about how the healing energy made them feel after their session.”

Lisa has also added the complementary modalities of Foot Reflexology with a Certification from the Valley School of the Healing Arts, and a certification in Reiki Voice to enhance her Reiki practice.
Since seeing Angel cards for the first time at her first Reiki session, Lisa has been drawn to them. “I still have photographs on my phone of the Angel Cards that Rachel drew from the deck before she even met me at my very first Reiki Session all those years ago. I could not believe that the messages on the cards spoke such truth to me.”

Lisa is now certified in both Angel Card and Angel Tarot Reading. She uses her intuition and asks for guidance from the Angels to provide clarity and give a spiritual and uplifting experience with each reading.

In addition to her Reiki practice, Lisa writes poetry and takes time for quiet meditation. She loves to learn new things and can often be found at a workshop or with her ‘nose’ in a book.


Melissa Nuschke

Melissa is a Reiki Master,  and has earned certifications in Reiki Sound and Reiki Voice.  She is also a Registered Nurse.  Melissa has been on a spiritual journey all of her life….and discovering the Reiki way of living feels like “coming home” at last!    Finding her authenticity through Reiki has deepened and expanded Melissa’s voice and her lifelong writing passions. In addition to Reiki, Melissa loves nature, hiking, animals, music and piano.

Melissa became aware of her gifts of healing and intuition at a young age.  As the years went by, she used these gifts to help many others.   This was rewarding, but eventually the endless giving without self-care exhausted the supply.   Melissa became aware that in order to be able to help others, she had to be “filled up”.

Her own healing journey began when she discovered Reiki. It opened an exciting journey of self- discovery, and the understanding of how critical self- care really is.   By choosing to receive  Reiki treatments, Melissa saw her body and spirit gradually settle into a place of beautiful balance.  And in that space, there is so much more to give and share!!!!!


Nancy Hogan Depew

Nancy is a Reiki Master/Teacher with a passion for serving others.  Reiki first discovered her several years ago, when she began receiving regular sessions for help with chronic pain issues.  Soon, she was ready for her first attunement so she could dedicate a daily practice of self-care and has not looked back!  Reiki has been a vehicle to finding true joy in everything in her life, and given her the ability to live in a heart-centered way, every day.

Living Reiki has been a calling, a privilege, and at its core, pure love.  More than anything, she wishes to share that beautiful Reiki glow with others and loves teaching Reiki, which she looks forward to doing more in the near future!  In addition to her Reiki practice, Nancy is a full-time Business Analyst and also enjoys exercising her creativity through graphic and web design for local, small businesses.

Why Choose Reiki?

Why Choose Reiki?


Reiki is DEEPLY RELAXING! Most people fall asleep or go into a meditative state. Reiki is the quickest way to find this quiet place within, where healing occurs and where you can hear the Inner Messages of your Higher Wisdom.

Reiki is an effective STRESS MANAGEMENT tool.

Reiki gets underneath to the source of your stress, and melts it away!

In addition to physical, emotional and attitudinal healing, Reiki often becomes a path to PERSONAL and SPIRITUAL GROWTH.

Reiki is always positive, and heals to your Highest Good and Greatest Joy. Reiki blends with, and facilitates, all other treatments, both traditional and complimentary.

Reiki is done FULLY CLOTHED, and for most people, this provides great comfort and safety.

Reiki, although very powerful, is VERY GENTLE. It is comfortable and safe for everyone, from newborns to women in their ninth month of pregnancy, to the elderly and those in hospice. 

Reiki helps you feel BALANCED, PEACEFUL, and ENERGIZED!
