I have been a practitioner for nine years in the Metaphysical Healing Arts for animals, humans and the environment. Energy Healing is about getting back to your true self, to find that place of peace and harmony within the body, mind, and spirit.

My role as an energetic practitioner is to assist you and your animal companion to that inner sanctum of peace. I work to bridge the communication gap between animals and their human companions.

It is through caring for our animals that we learn to care more deeply for ourselves.

    "Linda is a wonderful teacher and practitioner. I have known her for a number of years and truly appreciate her patience, kindness, and compassion for animals and their human friends. She was there for us when one of my dogs was recovering from a very traumatic injury and helped us through some very rough times. Her teaching style is very student-friendly and patient. Plus, she's very knowledgeable and fun to work with, besides! She's great!!! My animals and I wholeheartedly endorse her!! Thanks, Linda!!"

    "Linda has been my instructor, mentor and friend for many years now. She has not only been instrumental in enhancing my work with animals, but she has helped me tremendously personally. She is truly a wonderful teacher and guide. Her classes are geared to be understood, practical and thorough. Her sensitivity and compassion for animals is awesome (a word I don't use lightly) and her understanding of human emotions in dealing with their animal companions is a blessing for all those with whom she works. Linda is truly a blessing for all who have met and know her, whether furry, feathered or human, and she endeavors to instill that sensitivity, compassion and understanding to those taking any class from her. Although I have taken several classes from her, I continue to revisit those and take new ones with her because each time I learn something else that I may have missed before and she is always there with explanations and assistance. I would highly recommend to anyone interested in energy work to take at least one class with Linda - it is an experience."

    "I was a student of Linda Epstein for all three Reiki classes. She was very helpful in guiding me to understand how Reiki works and how I would be able to use it to help others. I enjoyed working with her. We have learned about animal transition with Linda's help.
    I am very grateful to Linda for opening my world on how I can help the animals."

  • George J. September 19, 2012

    "Linda was one of my teachers for Reiki. Working with Linda, I went from no experience with Reiki up to Master Level Reiki Practitioner. Linda is an excellent teacher - very patient and thorough. Working with her was an extremely enjoyable experience, and she was very instrumental in my achieving the goals I had set for myself in learning to understand and use Reiki on both animals and humans. I highly recommend Linda!"

  • Dominique A. September 13, 2012

    "As our older dog was getting close to her life on this earth, Linda was there to help us through the process, making sure that our dog was still enjoying life with us until it was time to let her go. Having Linda by our side (in spirit) was a tremendous support for our dog and for our emotional ability to go through that process. Her compassion helped us through losing our dog, yet still remaining connected to her.

  • Dominique A. September 13, 2012

    "Her compassion and her ability to be so in-tune with all of God's creatures have made a tremendous difference in shelter residents' life. She "worked" extensively on a very special dog, Maddy, and when Maddy's time came to cross over the Rainbow Bridge, Linda was there to help her as well as her human friends. There are no words to express everything that she did and does, and my gratitude is beyond words. Very peaceful and connected to all involved. Just wonderful!"

  • Ellie G. September 8, 2012

    "Linda is a wonderful teacher! She is very engaging and extremely informative. I will be forever grateful to her for teaching me Reiki and expanding my view of the universe.

    While she is very knowledgable and very experienced she is also very approachable and I always felt I could talk to her about any question or problem I might have. This is not always the case with someone of Linda's expertise.

    My cat Ally, who taught me how strong a bond can be between a human and an animal transitioned shortly after I completed a class with Linda. Linda was amazingly supportive and kind, another thing I will be thankful for.
    I am looking forward to taking more classes in the future with Linda."

  • Jennifer M. September 6, 2012

    "Linda is a fantastically intuitive and "in tune" person. I have really enjoyed her teaching and all of the insights I have received in class. I would highly recommend Linda as an instructor and healing practitioner. "

  • Lori K. September 5, 2012

    "Linda is an excellent teacher and mentor. She brings a plethera of knowledge to the table during each class, and has an uncanny ability to break down the subject matter in such as way that it is easy to recomprehend and grasp, even for neophites. Linda is enthusiastic and makes learning fun and enjoyable. She is very open-minded and flexible in her teachings. She encourages her students to bring their insight, experiences, and intuition into the learning process, to allow them to develop their skills in a manner which is true to them and their experiences. I highly recommend Linda as a energetic healing arts teacher. "

  • Lori K. September 5, 2012

    "Linda is a phenomenal energetic practitioner/healer. She is highly skilled in a wide variety of healing modalties and aproaches each healing session without judgment and with the utmost compassion. I highly recommend her to all desiring healing on the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual levels."

  • How can learning Reiki help me, my family and my animals?

    Learning how to offer Reiki gives you the ability to put the body, (man or animal) in a space of deep relaxation. This elicits a response in the body that triggers the bodies innate intelligence to begin the healing process. Healing may mean less pain, better sleep, better digestion or relief from a chronic condition. Reiki can help towards issues such as: separation anxiety, fear of noises, or relief from chronic pain from arthritis. Reiki can help heal the emotional wounds from abuse and abandonment. Offering Reiki on a regular basis to you, your family and animals can bring about a more calm and relaxed environment.
