Reiki Testimonials including Distant Reiki with Julie

Reiki Distant Session

Hi Julie: 

I just read the notes from my reiki session and they were spot on.  I do  have terrible pain in my left shoulder.  I had an X-ray done and it’s  the rotatory cuff which is off balance. With regards to the chakras that are out of balance, I do feel the symptoms of the area they govern. I really appreciate your session and your insight and I woke up feeling  more balanced this morning.  I will definitely follow through on the suggestions you made and will check out your online shop.

Thank you again.  


Julie has a gift for draining away toxic energy! 

~ Andy M. 

Hi Julie,

Thanks so much for the distant healing session, and all of your notes. I  definitely noticed when the session began, and even had started to feel the shift in energy when I set the intent to find you. 

~Thanks again, Sara N

Went for my first session of energy healing with Julie.  Very tranquil  experience. I have a long history of anxiety and other conditions  including IBS, and depression. In one session she was able to reduce  ongoing pain I had in one of my knees. My anxiety was entirely  diminished upon leaving my first session. I will absolutely be going back for more sessions. Julie is an incredibly talented healer and  explains all of her treatments thoroughly with a great foundation of  knowledge. Beautiful shop with all sorts of items, many homemade remedies and natural products. Highly recommend!  

~Elizabeth M.

One of the most wonderful and serene places to get Reiki. Julie is so talented and wonderful, I recommend her to all of my friends. Truly enlightening experience every time I go to Heavenly Hollow.

Hi Julie,

Thanks again for the wonderful training over the weekend. I've been experimenting a lot with the pendulum, crystal grid, and the solar plexus leaning forward or backward to tell if something is good for me or not. Really cool stuff!!

I felt that I was blocking myself from getting a clear sense of who my Archangel is because I was being intellectual about it and trying to suppress my knowledge. But as you suggested, there have been some signs. :-)

When you were on the table, I think you asked if Raphael was one of the angels I called in because you were seeing green light. Well, today I was working at the library, and a man came up to the reference desk where I work because he needed to take an exam with a proctor. When the librarian next to me asked him what his name is, he clearly and rather loudly announced, "I am Raphael." He is the only person all day who gave us his name. Actually, it almost never happens that someone comes up and states their name - especially so very clearly.

I took that as a sign. Thought you would enjoy hearing about this!

Kind regards,SUSAN MEYER

Julie is a kind and caring Reiki practitioner, and a skilled and motivating Reiki instructor. I love her shop too. 

~ Jennie.O

Julie is great. What an experience! A mystical drive to her clinic only added to her service. Julie really cares about what she does and you know it by talking to her-- she was so kind and open with me! I highly recommend her!! 

~J. Killian

Advanced Reiki Training Review I had taken my Level II Reiki Training with Julie at Heavenly Hollow. I came away from that day with such a great sense of excitement for the future Advance Reiki Training I already knew I would take at Heavenly Hollow! I was not disappointed! Julie and Heavenly Hollow have such great energy, and are surrounded by a lovely sense of ease and peace. This is what welcomes you as soon as you arrive. Her knowledge, experience and resources are abundant and generously shared. Any questions are usually answered with, “Hold on- I have great information on that subject in my closet/desk/drawer…”. What you learn and take away from Julie is far and above the minimum requirement for her trainings. I’m forever grateful for Reiki, Julie Walsh, and Heavenly Hollow. 

~Laurie G. NY

Julie, you are right about me, I had been feeling a little bottled up recently and wasn't saying all that I was thinking and it was making me feel uneasy and upset. I began yesterday to say more of what I'm thinking. You've helped me realize that I need to speak my mind-tactfully, but honestly- and get those feeling out where we can work on them. I also need to accept myself, and embrace the freedom to be who I am and do what I want and not worry so much what others may think of me for it. Physically I also feel rejuvenated by the session. Thank you very much!        
~ Christina C.

Thank you so much for your email Julie:)  Rachael slept really well last night and her jaw is a lot better!  No headache!  I know she really enjoyed her session with you yesterday.  I can’t wait to do the training with you.  I’m really hoping I have some talent for it and can pursue it for myself, family, and friends and possibly grow a business as you have!  I know this is a really lofty thought after just one Reiki session, but I really love to help people and it was such a powerful experience for me. 
~ Ruth, Niskayuna, NY 

Julie, Thank you so much for the thoughtful gift! I absolutely love it, and I put the angel under my pillow and had my first dream in months. Thank you for the distant healing. I definitely needed it. The eye mask also smells amazing and helped calm me down. I am going thru a tough recovery right now , so I've been trying to find some things to help. I don't know you, but I know you are a wonderful person! I appreciate you! Thanks again!!
~ Jamie

I am an experienced energy worker - a Master Teacher of Usui/Tibetan Reiki, an Okuden level practitioner of Jikiden Reiki, a Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist as well as a Spiritual Medium.  I am also a volunteer facilitator for hospice related bereavement support groups.  I have taught many classes in energy healing and led countless meditations for both regression and wellness.  Bottom line is...I know healing and have been able to peacefully co-exist with incurable cancer for years now because of it!  After working with Julie at Heavenly Hollow, I can honestly say that a session with her is an absolutely amazing experience.  It starts when you arrive at her beautiful studio nestled in a peaceful country setting but just minutes from I-90.  Entering the space, you immediately feel the peace and compassion in the atmosphere and you know right away you will leave in better shape than you arrived.  As a healer, Julie has so many tools and gifts to draw upon that I find it best to simply trust her intuition as to what I need in any particular session, and not only have I never been disappointed, I have always been uplifted and amazed by her sessions.  Having taught hundreds of practitioners over the years, I certainly have a large base on which to draw when I need to seek healing for myself, and Julie at Heavenly Hollow is always my first choice.  I guarantee that you will not be disappointed after a visit to Heavenly Hollow for healing - and be sure to take some time to browse through the awesome collection of gemstones, healing aids and other metaphysical tools in the shop while you're there.  I always find something new that I just can't resist adding to my collection.  I don't write a lot of reviews but this one is well earned.   Every session at Heavenly Hollow in Averill Park is unique, peaceful, powerful and amazing. – Bob McGrath,  Poestenkill, NY 

Oh my goodness this was wonderful and so, so spot on. My solar plexus energy was barely flowing at all yesterday, and now seems far more balanced. That's funny you have mentioned the feet... As part of a virus the doctors think I have, itchy palms/feet are common. I was up for a few hours last night just because of my ” feet”. My shoulders definitely bear the weight of the world and I had been having some problems even sleeping all week because I couldn't get my neck comfortable. My hormones are all over the board, and bloating is a real issue for me. Have never thought about that as a 6th chakra issue before for my bloating and hormones!  Thanks for mentioning it and  for helping me get back on track! I feel much more like myself :). This was a FANTASTIC healing!
~Sara F.

Where do I begin. I was helped greatly by this wonderful lady. My experience was wonderful and the results are great.
~ Marlene C. 

First of all, thank you for the distant session. It was very good. I do feel calmer and certainly more hopeful now. I find it amazing that you knew just where I needed the most healing. I actually have had just about all the symptoms of the sacral chakra that you mentioned and recently too. Glad to know those will go away. :) I think I may have suppressed my feeling and even 'right to feel' like you said for some time because of fear of loss, but that's no way to live, I'm realizing that now. I felt a warmth over my mid-section for much of the session and I thought you might be working on that area-that's really neat! My right hand was also warm for awhile and my right shoulder, maybe it was from too much stress. This has been a great experience! Thanks again ~
~Christina , New Jersey

It was such a pleasure meeting you! I felt such a wave of relaxation after our session. I also felt very uplifted. It has been a while since I took time for me to nourish my spirit. You have an amazing gift and I hope others get to experience it and I am grateful to have connected with you. You are truly a beautiful soul and I hope to be able to learn from you in the near future :)
Thank you so very much!
Eternal love and light
~Lynne , Delmar NY

You are a sweetheart. Very good experience once again for my daughter and that means the world to me. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
~Darcy K , Rensselaer, NY 

I asked Julie Walsh for a Reiki session while going through an extremely stressful time tending to our beloved fifteen year old dog. I am at heart a prayer warrior and decided to see how Julie's healing hands would partner with my prayers to God for internal peace. I was skeptical but willing to give it a try. Within 5 minutes of laying on her table I felt a sense of deep relaxation and within another 5 minutes I was asleep. I awoke refreshed and very surprised.
~Gloria Perreault, Averill Park , NY

I went to Julie for a reiki session about 6 months after I had my C-section. I was having horrible pain, numbness and tingling. I didn't know what to do, so I decided to try reiki. After the first session I was hooked. I had no more pain, numbness or tingling it was amazing. I will be going back again, for I am going to have another baby which means another C-section. 
~Michele Apfel , Troy , NY

I asked Julie to do another Reiki session on me because I have always been extremely pleased and have benefited greatly from our sessions. She has done it from a distance and it is truly amazing what I experience. I have several chronic autoimmune diseases and migraines and I always receive great relief and results from Julie. I am so thankful for her great talent! She is extremely gifted and I always look forward to working together.
