Emotional Pain Relief

Emotional Pain Relief -- Reiki For Inner Peace

Marcus in his Alameda, California healing center.

Many of my clients who have suffered with longstanding and frequently debilitating emotional pain, depression, anxiety, anger, shame and guilt have received very significant relief from those burdens as a result of our healing sessions.


The following are some of my clients’ Testimonials about the emotional pain relief they have received from our sessions:



Marcus is a natural-born healer. His hands are filled with a healing vibration. A session with him is a powerful experience of stress-relief and transformation.

When I was in Oakland many years ago, and I was trapped in my car for about 15 minutes while a gunman threatened the cashier at a fast food drive through, within 20 feet of my car. I feared that I might be killed at any moment by the gunman. I was left severely traumatized. After that, every time tried to drive over the Bay Bridge to the East Bay, I would have horrible panic attacks, and I would have to turn around and return to San Francisco. I saw Marcus for one session to try to get relief for my phobia. He gave me a Reiki treatment and a procedure he called a shamanic illumination. After the treatment I felt great!

A few days after Marcus’ treatment, I decided to try to visit a friend who lives in Oakland. I drove across the Bay Bridge relaxed and calm, with no knots in my stomach and no fear! I felt totally serene as drove to my friend’s house. It was great! I was there for a long time. I lost track. I meant to return before dark and once I realized it was after 10 p.m., I wondered if I’d step out of my friend’s place and feel afraid. I didn’t, and I felt perfectly fine driving back home! I felt free!

I cannot thank Marcus enough for what he has done for me. My friend thanks him as well! He’s an old friend and it wasn’t fair that he always had to come to San Francisco for us to get together.

I have not had experience with Reiki prior to my session with Marcus. Going into it, I was not attached to any particular outcome, hoping, however, to find some emotional release from a long childhood trauma, that has been a heavy sad elephant in my room for at least fifteen years.

Marcus’ work felt very gentle and kind. I was comfortable sharing my ever neglected pain.  Marcus truly listened and together we worked out the focus of healing.
Not sure what and how and why (and happy to say, I don’t need to know!), but since our session, the very next day I woke up lighter, unburdened, and have been feeling in the flow for the last couple of months. Thank you so much!

I believe wholeheartedly in mind-body connection, have working understanding of Chakra system, a bit of knowledge of the Chinese meridians approach, and at the same time, I think of myself as a skeptic and try to “keep it real”.

My mother was dying from cancer, and I had flown back east to take care of her.  The process left me overwhelmed and emotionally frazzled.  There were countless decisions to be made every minute, and I was not sleeping well. I was trying to balance grieving with getting the job done, and it was not proving to be an easy task. Marcus began doing distance Reiki on me every day.  My sleep improved, and I got a better handle on my responsibilities and on keeping my mood in check.  I felt more supported somehow. Everything became a little easier to manage.

When my mother’s condition worsened, I asked Marcus if he would do some distance Reiki on her as well.  I sent him a photo of her.  She had entered the hospice stage of her care and was very physically uncomfortable.  A few hours after I sent him the photo, he texted a message to me that her spirit was ready to pass over and that she had made peace with this.  And then, as if by clockwork, she died several minutes after the text exchange.  I do believe that his Reiki helped her relax and let go so that she passed without struggle, and that he facilitated our mother-daughter connection in our final days together.

Marcus helped me again when I returned to the Bay Area with an in-office Reiki session.  That helped me recover strength and get more grounded to get back to the daily routines of life and work.  He was a great ally throughout all stages of the experience, and I would recommend him most highly as a gentle but powerful healer for anyone who is going through or has been through a trauma.

Marcus emanates a very gentle and calming demeanor that quickly puts you at ease. I had my first Reiki session with him before the holidays in an effort to remain  grounded and resolute maintaining personal boundaries within a particular relationship. I left the session feeling a powerful sense of inner calm. My resolve was put to to the test in the New Year yet I remained steadfast and strong!  I highly recommend anyone contemplating energy healing to meet with Marcus – you will be pleased and impressed with the results.

Since I had never experienced Reiki before going to visit Marcus upon a recommendation, I wasn’t exactly sure what to expect. Within minutes, I felt at ease and a deep connection with his work. He was patient and thorough in explaining to me what Reiki was and how he was going to use it to help me specifically. At first, it was much like stepping away from a deep meditation session – peaceful with a noticeable vibrational shift. But after several days is when I really started to notice the work he’d done taking hold. The issue that had be haunting me on and off for several years was simply “gone”. Even though I have still thought about it, Marcus helped me remove the anxiety that had been surrounding it for so long. He was professional, thorough, intentional, and extremely thoughtful and compassionate to what was happening with me. He is as kind and gifted soul that I would recommended to anyone needing energetic healing. Thank you!

My first Reiki session ever was with Marcus recently.  I was not familiar with this practice and honestly a bit skeptical.  What I experienced however, the calmness, clarity, and general sense of well-being that I had not felt in a long time made me a believer in this form of energy healing, and I greatly look forward to future sessions!
