REIKI Immersion


SHINE Reiki Immersion Session (1:1)

More than just Reiki – this PERSONALIZED session is an immersion of the senses. All designed to easily guide you into a higher vibration. You will leave this immersion in the sweet spot that Cortney refers to in her book and workshops of 62-72 MHz where illness and disease can no longer thrive.  


FEEL. When you arrive for your session – the personalized immersion begins, as the temperature in the room will be perfectly set and adjusted to your liking.

SIGHT. The Reiki space, surrounded by big, beautiful windows, will immerse you in nature as you soak in the views of the birds, the trees and the lake.  Your eyes will translate these views to your body and soul as a sense of peace and tranquility.

SMELL. The room will be filled with the scents of your favorite essential oils, and the aroma will inspire you to relax even deeper with each breath.

HEAR. Whether you prefer the sounds of nature coming from the serene setting, music set to 528hz, or your favorite playlist, the sounds provided during your session will be selected perfectly for you. 

TOUCH. As you lie on the Reiki table, you will be supported and surrounded by the most comfy of blankets and props, all personalized to your liking. Vibration mat, heated blankets and weighted blankets are all available.


Once you are all settled in, the session will begin with a testing of your seven chakras. These results can help to guide and personalize your immersion. (more on chakras here).


After the chakras are tested, the Reiki begins. The Reiki Master is guided by experience and intuition, and has the ability to create a space where deep healing can occur on every level; physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. (more on Reiki here).


The session will conclude with sound frequencies selected just for you, using crystal bowls and koshi chimes.


The following additional “tools” may also be used during your Reiki immersion session:

  • Vibration mat

  • Weighted blanket

  • Reflexology

  • Personalized mantras or affirmations

  • Essential oil blend (at the feet)

  • Guided meditation or visualization


Each and every session is different and will last approximately 60 minutes from start to finish.

distant reiki


Distant Reiki is as powerful as “in person” Reiki. Why? Simply put, Reiki is energy, and energy is not limited to time and space. (same concept as the power of prayer).
How does a distant Reiki session with Cortney work?
👉🏻Before the session – we talk on Facetime for 5-10 minutes
👉🏻During the session – I perform Reiki on you at a distance for about 45 minutes, after testing your chakras
👉🏻After the session – we talk on Facetime for 10-15 where I let you know what chakras where open/closed and we talk about ways, specific to you, to keep your vibration healthy and high

Exchange for a Distant Reiki Session is $60

If you have more questions or would like to book a session, please contact Cortney at cortneyshineakron@outlook.com

I've received both in-person and distant Reiki from Cortney. Is it weird that the distant Reiki appeared to be even more powerful? Although we weren't in the same room, I experienced a profound sense of peace - as I have been plagued with severe anxiety over the last couple of weeks, but after this session, something shifted and I feel like a new person. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

Literally speaking, the word chakra - derived from Sanskrit - translates to wheel. Chakras are spiritual energy centers within the human body, usually considered to be seven in number. These “wheels” can often be detected using a pendulum. When a pendulum is used by an expereinced Reiki practitioner, it will either swing clockwise, indicating an "open" or "balanced" chakra or counterclockwise, indicating a "closed" or unbalanced chakra. Whether open or closed, the results provide insight into our current state of well-being since chakras are an indication of our personal frequency.

  1. Reiki is a Japanese healing technique that promotes well-being. 

  2. The word Reiki (ray-key) comes from two Japanese words and means life force energy guided by Source.  

  3. A practitioner administers Reiki by gently laying hands on another or oneself. 

  4. Reiki is transferred during an attunement process from an experienced Reiki Master to a student. 

  5. During the attunement, adjustments are made in the student’s chakras and energy pathways to accommodate the ability to channel Reiki and links the student to the Reiki source. 

  6. In its history, since 1914, Reiki has aided in healing virtually every known illness. 

  7. Scientifically speaking, this happens because Reiki increases the frequency of the human body. 

  8. A healthy human body vibrates between 62-72 MHz.

  9. In theory, if we keep the frequencies of our bodies above 62 MHz, diseases and harmful microorganisms can not survive in the body. 

  10. For this reason, Reiki is one of the quickest ways to jump start a person’s well-being. 


Hudson, Ohio

Cortney preformed Reiki on me during my breast cancer journey. I saw her a day or two after each chemo and I cannot say enough about how this therapy was pivotal in my ability to be strong and continue during this difficult time. Emotionally and physically I felt refreshed after each Reiki session. In the months long journey she alone was the only practitioner that touched me in a way that was healing. My physician was amazed at how healthy I stayed all through out and asked me what was I doing differently? She was amazed and approved of this as a compliment to healing.


Akron, Ohio

Its hard to even put into words the experience, but it is the closest I feel to being whole, well and alive. The effects of the session stay with me long after I leave and I have this sense of peace that I carry with me, sometimes for days. 


Cleveland, Ohio

Cortney is a special soul and what she has to offer is real and honest. If you have the chance to take the training with her, you should jump at it...but only if you are open to your life transforming, because that's what happens when you begin training with her.
