Judith Maxey, MA, Owner Almus Reiki Judith has been practicing Reiki for over 12 years. She is an experienced and certified Usui, Holy Fire and Karuna Master Teacher, with a passion for bringing Reiki into the world. Judith offers individual Reiki sessions and private and group Reiki classes. Additionally, she leads “Reiki Evenings”, a monthly series for Reiki practitioners, and she shares her professional wisdom in the new 12-week course, FLOURISH: Becoming a Reiki Practitioner.
Prior to opening Almus Reiki, Judith worked extensively in medical settings, as a volunteer for the Northwest Reiki Association, There she gave complimentary Reiki sessions to patients at the Compass Oncology West's infusion unit, and to patients on the Providence Acute Rehabilitation Floor in Portland.
Judith specializes in both Reiki as complementary medicine, and Reiki for personal growth. In most cases, she finds an overlap, working with each client on a holistic level-body, mind and spirit. Judith believes that healing into our true self is the best way to bring peace and healing to the individual, and to the world at large. A student of various forms of energy medicine for over a decade, Judith brings her heart and intuition to each Reiki session. With a kind and compassionate nature, she intends for each session to be a connection of the hearts, and is guided by the innate wisdom of the client. She lovingly holds space for each person to step into their "healing" journey at their own pace.
With the guiding philosophy that "everything is energy", Judith incorporates her master level Reiki training; chakra balancing; Core Shamanism; and the unique frequencies of essential oils into her practice. Combining intuition and years of training, she listens to the messages provided by each person's body. She and her clients work synergistically towards balance, healing, vitality, inspiration...and the True Self energy of each individual.
Judith’s interest in alternative health began while pursuing her Master’s degree in Applied Anthropology, with an emphasis on Health and Culture. Her lifelong interest in the human experience has inspired her to live, travel and study abroad in a variety of places, including South Korea, Mexico, Alaska and all over Western Europe. Judith currently lives with her family in Portland, Oregon, and is passionate about finding balance in the world, one person at a time, through Reiki.
