Shelley Carpenter, PT, RYT, RM

Reiki/Therapeutic Yoga

Shelley is a Reiki Master/Teacher, Physical Therapist and Registered Yoga Teacher .

Reiki (pronounced “ray-key”) is a hands-on energy healing technique for stress reduction and relaxation. It promotes the body’s self-healing ability and provides a sense of peace and well-being in mind, body and spirit. Reiki is effective in treating stress and tension-related disorders, pain, chronic fatigue, migraines and a host of other problems. It supports your body’s natural healing abilities and promotes mind/body awareness.  Reiki is administered by a gentle ‘laying of the hands’ while the fully-clothed client relaxes comfortably on a massage table.  The client becomes deeply relaxed and may feel warmth or tingling under the practitioner’s hands and throughout the body.  Reiki is widely used in healthcare settings in conjunction with traditional medical techniques.  Reiki does not interfere with other treatments and can enhance their effects as it brings your body into a state of balance.

Research has shown Reiki to cause:

  • Reduction in depression
  • Lower blood pressure
  • Lower respiration rate
  • Improve sleep
  • Reduce need for pain medication
  • Reduce injury or surgical recovery time
  • Invoke a profound relaxation response

Shelley blends her training/experience of more than 20 years as a physical therapist with her knowledge of the wisdom of yoga to create a personalized, Individual Therapeutic Yoga program for your specific needs. An individual session or series is ideal if you currently have or are recovering from surgery, an injury, illness, or chronic condition. This therapeutic yoga is a very gentle style that prevents future injury and allows safe recovery from a current illness or injury. It allows people dealing with chronic pain or disease to participate in a consistent exercise program for improved overall health. Every individual therapeutic yoga session includes written instructions for a personally designed home practice.

Due to past injuries and a lifetime of following the ‘no pain, no gain’ mantra, I’ve been exposed to more health providers in the past half century than I care to count.  Some have helped a little, some have helped a lot, but a special few have helped nurture transformative improvements in my health and wellbeing that have stayed with me for a long time.  Shelley Carpenter is one of those providers.  Perhaps it’s from her years of experience with physical therapy, but after my first Reiki session with her I felt like she was a very intuitive healer, and every session I’ve paid for with her was well worth the small cost.

When I attended Shelley’s yoga classes I was so appreciative of her attentiveness to all of the small ways that changing certain movements could make positions easier to hold and more beneficial. I hear her voice every time I remind myself to do as she teaches…to be kind to my body.  I’ve recommended her to multiple friends and family and know that I’m certainly not the only one who thinks so highly of her. –C.M.

Shelley’s Reiki treatments have been tremendously helpful to me during my battle with breast cancer. I feel that her treatments helped to decrease my post-surgical pain, decreased the side-effects of chemotherapy, and promoted a sense of calm relaxation. Reiki facilitates healing on many levels. Shelley definitely has a gift for this type of work. I am very grateful to her for sharing her gift with me. — M.H.

Over the past year I have had three surgeries. Shelley introduced me to Reiki as a tool to aid in my healing and recovery. Reiki restored my body’s natural energy flow which had been compromised by the pain and trauma of these procedures. I was amazed at the restorative effects of the Reiki on my physical, mental, and emotional well-being. After each session, I felt incredible peace and tranquility, and gained much needed momentum towards achieving wellness. Shelley’s gentle, caring nature and positive attitude helped to foster confidence and made each session enjoyable and productive.” — C.R.

The first Reiki session I experienced with Shelley was relaxing and energizing at the same time. I felt a tranquil sensation disperse throughout my body and my mind was very calm. One day I was scheduled to see Shelley and coincidentally I was struggling with sinus pain in my left temple area and almost immediately after the treatment ended, my sinuses felt so much better that I was able to function the rest of the day!
Reiki not only helped me physically, but it has also released feelings I didn’t know I was holding and tension I thought I was dealing with. Having made that connection I was able to deal with my current anxieties and “move on”. I am definitely convinced of the power of Reiki healing and developed a real appreciation of its benefits. I trust Shelley completely and am very impressed with her skills! Being a therapist also, I would highly recommend her to my clients who need more than physical healing. Shelley has helped me bring awareness into my body while relieving physical discomfort and guiding me into a state of peacefulness. — S.R.
