Deb Lloyd is compassionate, a wise old soul, an authentic professional. She loves this life on earth,
although it’s often been challenging. Experiencing polio as a toddler, she always knew what it
felt like to be different. For over 20 years, she has shared her compassionate wisdom with many
clients in her counseling career as a psychotherapist/clinical social worker. Currently, she works
as a hospice social worker, bringing peaceful solace to her grieving patients and families.

Deb experienced her first Reiki session over 10 years ago, as a client, to decrease the fatigue
resulting from post-polio syndrome. She felt the fatigue lift during the session, never
experiencing that same level again. Within a few months, she and her husband attended their
first Reiki training. Using Reiki daily, along with other alternative modalities, led to more
physical improvements, as well as emotional and spiritual healing.

Deb knew she had to bring Reiki energy to others, in both individual work with clients and
training others to use Reiki. She has attained the Reiki Master level in both the Usui and Karuna
 traditions. She has also been certified as a holistic practitioner, expanding her knowledge in
other energy healing methods. Her spiritual growth has enabled her to develop, and trust, an
intuitive ability to feel clients’ energies and acquire messages for them from the spiritual realm.
