Francesca Molinari, RP-CRA

Francesca has been involved with Reiki since early 2006 when her mom first asked her to go with her to an introductory Reiki Course held at Langara college. 

Since she was 7 years of age she suffered from very strong migraines almost daily and an aggressive form of psoriasis that went away completely once she went vegan. Reiki helped her through all this tough changes and pain by relaxing her very stressed body and mind and hence letting her body take it from there to heal itself. No side effects with Reiki, only peace and relaxation.

After many years practicing Reiki on herself, her family and friends, and her pets, she decided it was time to pursue all other levels to then become a Reiki Master so she could teach. She finished all three levels and got her Reiki Master at the end of 2007 and has been a member of the Canadian Reiki Association since 2006 as a Registered Practitioner. Francesca is currently in the process of getting all her papers ready to apply to become a registered teacher, and will also work toward a certification in animal Reiki. She has a special connection to animals and loves them very much.

Ten years after going through many life challenges such as losing her father after a year of true suffering, losing her dear grandmother and seeing her mom going through several operations and all the suffering associated with it, she is now free to dedicate herself to her Reiki Practice, now that she has found a great place to contribute to the relaxation and healing of others while cooperating with other wonderful healers from all walks of life and of course the great medical center created by her skilled colleagues. While Francesca has been exposed to all sorts of healing modalities she feels her true interest and passion is in energy healing.

Availability: Most weekday evenings 7pm - 9 or 10pm, and by appointment.
