SHINE Reiki Session (1:1)

Reiki is a Japanese healing technique performed by gently laying hands on. The word Reiki comes from two Japanese words; Rei + Ki and is loosely translated to mean life force energy guided by Source. During a Reiki session your life force energy will get a boost, increasing your vibration (ie your personal frequency). It is similar to acupuncture (without the needles) as it stimulates the body's natural healing abilities and promotes physical and emotional well-being.

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 following additional “tools” may also be used during your Reiki immersion session depending on the practitioner and your preferences:

  • Vibration mat

  • Weighted blanket

  • Reflexology

  • Personalized mantras or affirmations

  • Essential oils

  • Guided meditation or visualization

  • Sound therapy

  • Crystals


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

REIKI + sound

1:1 sessions

Reiki + Sound Session (1:1)

Reiki and sound fused together in one session will surely open your energy body and allow the healing energy to flow. By lying comfortably on the floor (on a mattress) and surrounded with crystal singing bowls, you will truly be bathed in sound. The Reiki energy will be amplified by the vibrations and allow for a deep clearing, leaving you feeling revitalized. Sessions will be customized based on your chakra testing and your requests. 


Select from 60 or 90 minute sessions.

Animal Reiki Session

Animal Reiki is a special adaptation to the traditional Reiki practice specifically for pets and other animals. It can offer pain and stress reduction techniques, with both a heart-centered and hands-on approach. Animal Reiki is also offered during times of transition. Reiki is a gentle and powerful way to support not only the animal, but the entire family, when an animal is dying (making their transition).


Setting expectations for the session: The session will last approximately 45 minutes – however, it is important to note, unlike a traditional Reiki sessions with a person, an Animal Reiki session is guided completely by the animal. Therefore, ultimately the session time is determined by your beloved pet/animal.


Reiki can bring not only physical healing for the animal – but sometimes, even more importantly, emotional and spiritual healing. It’s important to note that with any Reiki, we are to let go of any expectations – and its even more important for animals that are dying. It may be true that the Reiki will allow for a relief in symptoms and physical improvements may occur. However, it is also important to note that “healing doesn’t always mean cure.” Reiki provides each being with the healing that is most needed within the framework of that being’s current wishes and destiny. Reiki is always working for the highest good of the animal even if the results are not what we, as humans, had hoped for.

distant reiki


distant reikiv2.png

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 $70

If you have more questions or would like to book a session with Cortney Martinelli, please contact her at

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!

We want to EMPOWER people to be part of their own healing journey, instead of relying solely on a Reiki practitioner, or anyone else for healing.  Our mission is to train as many people as possible to become Reiki practitioners and be their own best healer.

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.
