Optimal You Wellness Partners is honored to have two amazing Reiki Practitioners - Richelle Schmidt and Darla Conchas. Both Richelle and Darla bring years of experience to the time honored practice of Reiki.
Reiki is an ancient healing technique thought to be thousands of years old. Reiki is based on the idea that we have an unseen “life force energy” that flows within us. If ones “life force energy” is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress and if it’s high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy. Reiki treatments work by eliminating toxic energy from many levels of ones being whether it be physical, emotional, mental or spiritual. Reiki helps to create and strengthen a harmonious environment within one’s being so true healing can take place.
It is a very simple yet powerful healing art that is accessible to everyone. There is no religious affiliation and is a complementary healing modality that does not conflict with medicine or medical treatments.
Richelle Schmidt is a Reiki Master Teacher, Shamanic Reiki Master Practitioner, Intuitive, supercharged Empath trained in Crystal Reiki and Essential Oil Reiki. She has had the honor and privilege of studying Reiki under an extraordinary Shaman for two years and trained extensively in the Chakra system through Belinda Davidsons School of the Modern Mystic. Richelle is always attending classes and workshops to further expand her knowledge, skills and understanding through her own personal experience.
Richelle’s spiritual journey began in response to increasingly challenging life circumstances. Life was no longer in alignment on an energetic level and was reflecting in her reality. It was time for things to change and she turned to alternative healing modalities to heal on a soul level. Richelle immediately felt the excitement of this new path and knew it was her calling and life path. That’s when her interest in all things Metaphysical blossomed and her Reiki journey began. She is passionate about helping others heal and become more aligned with their true self as she did through her life experiences.
Darla Conchas is a Reiki Master Teacher trained in the Usui Natural Healing System of Reiki. Darla has been blessed to train under magnificent teachers and continues her ongoing education to further assist her clients. She is incredibly intuitive and offers her clients compassion, kindness and knowledge she has acquired through her personal healing experience.
One day, after a series of tests taken to find out what was causing a mysterious pain, Darla received a petrifying diagnosis. Down on her knees in desperation, she asked not only for guidance but the ability to know what she was being guided to do. In all of her despair, the word “GIFT” was shown to her in bright white light. After that day, she never doubted her intuition and was led down her path toward healing. Among the many healing modalities she experienced, she knew after her first Reiki session that helping people through Reiki was part of her lifelong purpose.
