Physical Healing --- Reiki For Inner Peace

Marcus in his Alameda, California healing center.

Many of my clients who have suffered with longstanding and frequently debilitating physical pain have received very significant relief from that burden as a result of our healing sessions.

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


Thank goodness I met Marcus when I did. Two months ago I could only walk about 1/2 a block before I had to sit down due to severe hip, lower back, and joint pain. Last week I dropped my car off at my mechanic and took a bus to the Trans-Bay Terminal and walked to Steuart and Howard Street and walked back. I felt tired because it’s been a while since I’ve been able to walk any distance, but I had a smile on my face. After only a few visits with Marcus, I can now walk comfortably where I’d like to go. This is after 8 years of seeing a chiropractor and slowly but steadily getting worse. I’m now rapidly healing! Thanks Marcus!

Reiki for Inner Peace did cure my breathing problems a few month ago with just one session. I had asthma issues for many years, but they are a thing of the past now. A remarkable result!  Marcus’ last treatment was aimed at my acid reflux problem.  I have seen an improvement about two weeks after the session.  Now, about six weeks after Marcus’ Reiki session, I was able to stop taking my pills.  I am also following the suggestions regarding changes in eating habits, I received at the Reiki session. I feel confident, that my acid reflux will be cured too, without pills.

And Prior Testimonial:

I had light asthma problems off and on and used inhalers to control the asthma when needed. Some asthma was caused by stress, some by allergic reactions to dust and pollen. One day I was introduced to the Reiki method of healing and I thought I give it a try with Marcus for Reiki. It has been about three month now since the Reiki healing experience. Since then, after only one Reiki treatment, all my asthma problems have gone away and I have never had breathing problems again . This is simply remarkable, because the doctors, after many different medications, could not solve the problem. I was told to use an inhaler when needed. Well, I don’t need one anymore, thanks to Marcus for Reiki. What a blessing it is for me!  Thank you Marcus.

It’s amazing because I have been on my feet for 2 1/2 days with company from Rhode Island. We have been showing them all over town. I should be in raging pain, but I am not. I have often read about the power of healing hands and I do believe that your help through Reiki has been very successful. I will always have pain from time to time because of my fibromyalgia, and the pain in my feet is a dull constant of my life, but the needle piercing pain I had been feeling recently was very difficult to ignore and impossible to sleep through. I think I’ll get a good sleep tonight. I know God works in many ways and I believe He worked through you. I have been praying for relief because the pain has been very intense. Thank you for helping.

It has been months since I needed to get a Reiki treatment from Marcus. Yesterday I had a flare-up, and my feet and one of my knees were hurting very badly. Since I live in San Diego, I couldn’t receive an in-person Reiki treatment from Marcus, so he suggested we do a distance Reiki session. After the one-half hour treatment, my knee is much improved and my feet are much better, too. I don’t know how it works long distance, but it does. I have no trouble understanding the laying on of hands, which should work through the power of the Holy Spirit with the Reiki Master as a conduit, but long distance? Oh well, I know you are an excellent healer and with God, all things are possible. Thank you again, Marcus, for your time, your faith in healing, and your love to share it with me.

Last November, while visiting my husband’s family for Thanksgiving, my mom broke her femur. She was 92 at the time, had emergency surgery, and was recuperating at a skilled nursing facility in Marin County. Something led me to Marcus for help with her healing. He visited her at the facility and performed distance healing, too.  My mom has turned 93, and is well on the road to recovery and walking again, amazing!!!

As it turns out, Marcus may have helped me just as much. I had a persistent pain in my elbow, diagnosed as tennis elbow, for well over a year and a half.  To try to relieve the pain, I visited my acupuncturist, a structural physical therapist, and did arm strengthening exercises, but nothing helped, until the work with Marcus. During an intensive double session, Marcus helped to release the physical and psychological damage that inflicted me for so long.  Today, four months have passed and I have no signs that this pain will return. I recommend the Reiki work with Marcus if you need help with pain or issues that you can’t let go of. He is truly amazing.

I had been diagnosed by a sports medicine physician with calcific tendonitis.  I had extreme pain and a frozen shoulder; I could not lift my arm forward or to the side more than 6 inches.  The pain radiated down my arm into my fingers.  In the x-ray, there were massive amounts of calcium deposits on the tendon in my shoulder (to the point of the doctor saying he had never seen anything quite like it).  He gave me a cortisone shot and said come back in 3 weeks.  When I wasn’t feeling any better, two days later, I called Marcus.  With an in person treatment and subsequent remote treatments that night and the next day, I had nearly full movement and dramatically reduced pain two days later.  This “miraculous recovery” could have been because of a combination of a multitude of things I was doing, including Epsom Salt soaks, reduced calcium intake, chelated magnesium, visualizations and the cortisone, but I found it particularly interesting that I felt so much better so quickly after seeing Marcus for a Reiki session.   The mind and spirit are powerful healers.  Marcus has an impressive grasp of both.

I began as a skeptic, as a first time recipient of Reiki treatment from Marcus. I figured with a complimentary treatment, I had nothing to lose.  After my first treatment, within 48 hours, the pain I had experienced in my ankles nearly disappeared. The relief lasted many months. When symptoms come back, or when I’ve had another physical complaint, I’ve returned for another treatment.  Five years later, my relationship with Marcus continues. Reiki has been the only treatment I’ve ever received that allows me complete mobility. It’s an hour spent in a very relaxing, pleasant atmosphere, with a true professional. I don’t know exactly how energy healing works, I just know it works for me, and for that I’m truly appreciative. Marcus is a great asset to the Alameda alternative healing community.

The acute tear rendering pain I was feeling when I came to visit Marcus was greatly subdued after he performed a healing on me. I left him with a lightness in my step and the pain had dissipated to a dull throb. It was truly amazing! I am so grateful for his service to humanity and seeing me on such short notice. I highly recommend Marcus to receive a healing.

It was by chance that Marcus needed service on his office equipment and I came to repair it. I had just suffered a serious injury to the tendons and muscles on my right hand. I am generally a skeptical individual, but I do respect the ancient traditions of medicine and healing. Marcus looked at my swollen hand and offered to perform his Reiki discipline for me. It was pleasurable to sit before Marcus as he lit an ancient wood which had an unusual but pleasing scent. He then grasped my wounded hand for 20 minutes or so and asked me to keep him informed on its progress. That evening, the swelling had subsided substantially and the range of motion improved in my fingers. Thanks to the graciousness Marcus offered, my hand is on a speedy mend. Thank you so much for extending your healing Powers for me, as I was able to report to work and use my hand.

Marcus is a very talented and natural healer. He has a calming energy that puts you at ease as soon as you step through the door. He is super professional, understanding, and patient. I’ve had chronic migraines for many years and have gone through several types of medication and treatments. The drugs only work temporarily and always leave me feeling groggy and disoriented. When I went to see Marcus I was in the middle of a migraine, but five minutes into our session I was able to completely relax. The session was very pleasant, I felt light and calm and the headache faded away completely. I was quite amazed with the results in just one session. Thank you Marcus!!!

Thank you so very much, Marcus, for helping me. The pain I was feeling in my left breast since before the holiday season is gone. I have not felt any pain there since the remote Reiki session Marcus provided me over the phone. I went to see a medical doctor after the holiday season because of the pain. I was given a mammogram at the hospital, the results of which were normal. No cancer cells were detected but I was still in quite a bit of pain, which the doctors were unable to diagnose or relieve. I used ice therapy after the screening as the hospital suggested, but this would only give me a few hours of pain relief. The 30 minute Reiki session I had with Marcus over the phone relieved the pain once and for all. I have felt no pain at all for weeks. In addition to this, Marcus’ Reiki session also lessened the migraine pain I was feeling and eliminated the upper neck and back pain I was having as well. I can’t thank Marcus enough!

Marcus has been a sensitive healer through a painful crisis in my shoulder and upper back with periodic migraines for the past year.  I have moved from the Bay Area and he continues to facilitate my recovery through distance healing.  In my distance sessions I feel an energy shift and my body/mind lets go.  Areas of tension and pain relax in my shoulder and I feel mental clarity.  I feel free with a deep sense of gratitude and presence when the 30 minutes concludes.  Marcus is a natural, artful and intuitive healer and I love having him in my life.

I arrived home from San Francisco General Hospital after a stroke. Once again thank goodness for Marcus!  Because of the Covid-19 lockdown, Marcus was kind enough to help me with a distant Reiki session from Alameda, CA. I have now been blessed with two of Marcus’ distant Reiki sessions, and today I feel wonderful as a result!  I was able to walk down the hallway without gripping the walls and I didn’t have to use a walker, for the first time since Ieaving the hospital. I am feeling wonderful and I predict I will be able to walk down the streets sooner. Thank you so much for being my go-to Reiki guy, Marcus!

I was a bit skeptical about Reiki, but now I am a believer and it’s all thanks to Marcus. Before the session began, my right wrist, hand, and knee were hurting for various reasons. By the time the session ended, I felt very positive, relaxed, and the pain in the aforementioned areas had subsided substantially. Marcus is an extremely gifted Reiki Master. He does a great job of explaining Reiki philosophy and has a calm, warm spirit. He really tries to connect with you and this helps to make the session so much more enjoyable. The only regret I had about this experience is that the Reiki session had to end! Thanks for making me feel better Marcus!

Marcus made me feel completely at ease and answered well all my questions on the method of Reiki. He is very knowledgeable of different spiritualistic healing methods and great company during the ‘treatment’. I was suffering from a very tight neck and felt instant relief. The warmth experienced from the energy created was very relaxing and I could certainly feel my chakras being re-tuned. The next day I was amazed how much energy I had during a long day and I’m sure I will feel more benefits in the days to come too!

I broke my ankle on Memorial Day weekend, Sunday. One week and one day later, Marcus offered to do a long distance healing on my broken ankle. Up to this time I had been keeping it elevated as it would swell if it wasn’t elevated. I was in a place where I couldn’t keep it elevated. I noticed around 6:00 pm that my foot wasn’t swelling even though it wasn’t elevated. It wasn’t aching either. I came home an hour later and put it up and took off my brace and found that the swelling had actually gone down and I had a great deal more mobility. Later, I checked my email and saw one from Marcus saying he had done a long distance healing between 5:15 and 5:45 that evening. I don’t believe in coincidences. Thank you Marcus.

Last week the left side of my face and neck swelled along my jawline to my chin and up to my glasses. The pain and pressure was extraordinary. I was out working when this took place. I called a client who had trouble understanding me. The pain to my jaw was affecting how well I could speak. When I finally made it home I looked into the medicine cabinet mirror and was stunned by how distorted my face and head were. I was hurting so much & needed relief. I took ibuprofen which did nothing for my pain. After laying in bed I was hurting more and more as time passed. I sat up and called Marcus. I told him what was going on and he offered me a remote Reiki healing session. During this time I relaxed on my bed at home in San Francisco while he worked on me remotely from Alameda. He called me back in about 30 minutes and the pain I was feeling was now completely gone.

I had been receiving Reiki treatments from Marcus on and off for a few years for help with both physical and stress problems. All the while I was also dealing with psoriasis on my arm. However, I never raised it as a concern until recently, when I broke out with a different infection in the same area. I called Marcus and during our session we discussed possible emotional reasons and energy blockages in my body that were contributing to my flare-ups. He then located an area in my back and performed a shamanic illumination to clear the energy blockage there, and also gently places his hands on and over my arm covered with psoriasis. I am happy and relieved to say that over the next several days my arm was about 80 percent cleared and has been ever since. No other medication has had the same dramatic impact. I am a genuine believer in the power of Marcus’ Reiki sessions, as a method of healing all kinds of ailments—both physical and emotional.

When I went to Marcus for Reiki, I didn’t really know what to expect. However, as soon as I arrived at his beautiful vintage office, he set me at ease. He started the process by sharing his impressive collection of gorgeous stones and crystals and asked me to choose one that resonated with me. I picked one I liked. This was the stone that Marcus used during the Reiki treatment.

I was experiencing a flare-up of shoulder pain at the time of this session. After the process of tuning and treatment that Marcus used during Reiki, my shoulder pain had completely subsided, and I felt a sense of overall well-being.

I would recommend Marcus to anyone seeking the healing power of Reiki.
