Alysha Jefferies, LMT

Alysha has always been inspired by the body’s ability to heal itself naturally and our ability to assist this process through various natural healing modalities. In 2012, Alysha began taking weekly yoga classes in an attempt to combat her depression and anxiety. After a year of maintaining a dedicated yoga practice, she was able to say goodbye to the prescription medication for that ailment. Realizing the power Yoga had for herself, it was shortly after that she completed Yoga Teacher Training from Om My Yoga Academy in Camp Hill, PA to share this gift with others.

Through the journey of Yoga, Alysha was led to Aromatherapy, crystal healing, Sound Therapy, various styles of Reiki, Massage Therapy, and plant medicine. It is her belief that the more knowledge she obtains, the more knowledge there is to share, and the better equipped she is to assist others. Alysha is an intuitive artist and a Licensed Massage Therapist in PA. She applies her knowledge of the healing arts combined with different massage techniques to create a uniquely intuitive session for each client. Alysha provides several unique services but one of her specialty services is Intuitive REIKIssage. This entails an intuitively guided combination of reiki and massage to provide a deeply restorative state for tension relief and optimal relaxation for the mind and body.

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!!!!!

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!
