Treatment Testimonials


I have had occasional lower back pain for over ten years.  When I have these episodes they typically last four to five weeks with extreme discomfort.  I will always see my chiropractor.  For my last flare up, however, I also received two treatments from Donna Small.  It was my first experience with long distance Reiki.  After just one treatment, I was amazed by the impact and the speed with which my back healed.  By the next morning, I felt significantly better and within two weeks, and one more treatment, my pain had disappeared.  Donna Small has a wonderful gift and has become a core part of my back care…

I had been experiencing several medical problems at the same time during a period that expanded 8 months.  There came a point that I was wondering whether or not the underlying problem would ever be diagnosed.  I spent many hours between doctors and emergency wards in various states.  During this time I was holding down my job but due to my situation I was missing a considerable amount of work.


Due to the fact that I was scheduled for surgery I was becoming increasingly stressed.  Donna suggested that perhaps I would like to try Reiki.  I had never experienced this type of technique.  Not knowing anything about it, I asked her, “should I come to your home?”  She explained that she could provide Reiki long distance.  I picked out a day/time.  I was reclining on my chair when I started feeling relaxed and felt the negative energy in my body being released.  At the end of the session I was so comfortable and peaceful.  It was amazing. 


Due to this experience I was more at peace once my surgery date had arrived.  I definitely would recommend Reiki to other people.  Thank you Donna, for taking the time; showing concern; and offering Reiki.  It was an experience that I will always treasure and would definitely do again …

As a result of excessive keyboarding, I had been suffering from a very sore neck/shoulder.  After a treatment focused on the area, I found my range of motion increased and the pain decreased.  This was my first treatment of Reiki, and I found Donna's kind manner added to the quality of my experience …

As a physical education, teacher, coach and recreational athlete, a severe bout of vertigo had limited my participation in many activities.  Since the full Reiki treatment I received from Donna my balance improved to the point where I can once again enjoy these activities in relative comfort.  It made a marked difference in how I felt overall…

I have been suffering from chronic hip pain for the past two years due to a sports injury.  Unfortunately I have not been able to cure my condition through traditional methods i.e. physical therapy or anti-inflammatory medication.  Donna suggested I try Reiki to alleviate my discomfort.  She performed a distance treatment.  With her guidance I was able to achieve an incredibly peaceful and relaxing state while she connected into my energy.  Even though we were several miles apart, she at her home and I at mine, I could actually feel a warm, soothing sensation, on my hip during our session.   When I woke up the next morning, right away I could feel the positive affects from her work.  The pain had significantly reduced and continued to disappear over the next several days.  I was amazed at how much better I felt and the experience really helped “turn the corner” in my overall healing.  Donna truly has a tremendous skill.  Also she possesses wonderful compassion for the health and wellness of her clients.  I absolutely benefited from her care and whole-heartedly recommend her services …

In May 2007 I was diagnosed with breast cancer.  I wanted to do whatever I could to kick it.  I knew I would have to go through chemo and radiation; my biggest concerns were loosing my hair and dealing with the nausea.  I had also heard about the burns from radiation.  I had heard about Reiki from a friend of mine, whose daughter was a Reiki Master, about 6 months before I was diagnosed.  It sounded interesting but I never looked into it. Two days before I started my chemo treatments my mother asked me if I had considered Reiki.  She heard it helped with the nausea.  She also told me her friend’s daughter didn't loose her hair from chemo and she really thought it was because she was going for Reiki before her chemo treatments.  I put it in the back of mind, until my hair started to thin, then I panicked.  I started Reiki the next day.  I didn't research it, I wanted to go into it not knowing what to expect.  I started to go the day before chemo, the day after, and once a week on the off weeks.  It did help with nausea and by the third treatment (I don't know if it was Reiki or not, I think it was), my hair stopped thinning.  A lot had fallen out but I wasn't totally bald, which through all of this was my biggest fear.  Reiki relieved so much stress.   


After the chemo I started radiation, I had no physical side affects - most of the other patients had rashes or burns and blisters.  My doctors were surprised that I had none of these.  I believe Reiki helped here as well.  I had positive experiences with Reiki through my treatments and decided that I wanted to continue with treatments.


I am now cancer free.    Reiki treatments continue to be an integral part of my overall wellness plan.  My first Reiki treatment with Donna was a distance treatment.  She talked to me about how I was feeling and what I would like to focus on.  We scheduled a time, and I relaxed in my home while Donna treated me from hers.   At the beginning of the treatment I felt tingling in my finger tips and later a pulsing in my crown chakra. Donna explained this was Reiki energy moving around.  After the treatment, I felt peaceful and renewed.  I found I had lots of energy the next day.


Distance Reiki works well for me.  I receive the same benefit and I don’t have to go out. My experience with Donna is that she truly cares about my wellbeing and honors my process…

Workshop Testimonials


Although admittedly I didn’t know what to expect, I was amazed that after several hours I was able to feel my partner’s energy and subsequently use Reiki on her… with positive effects.  I liked the two-person class very intimate and comfortable.  I liked the free exchange of information and the casual, comfortable environment.  The format of the class was great and very conducive to learning and retaining what we were taught.


Thank you Donna!  I really didn’t know what to expect but I am so glad I took this intro class.  I’ll keep practicing and will look forward to Reiki 2.

I wasn’t really sure what to expect, but I feel like I learned much more than I thought I would.  The instruction was very clear.  The repetition of practices helped immensely & so did the small group. 


Donna’s approach to teaching is very helpful & comforting.  I felt I could ask any question.  Donna was very engaging & thorough in her teaching approach.
