There is, of course, a small menagerie of animals to tend to and they, along with my partner, make our house a home.”

Kelly Sabara

Reiki Master Teacher, doTERRA Education & Sales

About Kelly

Since 2006, Kelly has been practicing the ancient art of healing with Reiki.  Reiki helps one to deeply relax, take time for oneself, rest, recharge, and release energy in the body and mind that is no longer needed. This hands-on healing practice helps reduce everyday stress that often accumulates from our busy lifestyle. Once the body and mind achieve relaxation, positive changes occur, energies shift, and the client begins to feel better.
Kelly is a Reiki Master Teacher in two styles of Reiki. She began with the Traditional Usui Reiki lineage. After completing her Teacher degree, she learned Karuna Reiki. This style digs deeper into the emotions and helps to heal past traumas, releasing them with ease.  Kelly practices with both Usui and Karuna Reiki during a Reiki treatment, unless otherwise requested.

Self-treatment is important to Kelly because she can better serve her family, clients, and community when she feels better, balanced, and happy. She is a firm believer in a “practice what you preach” mentality.

In her spare time, Kelly loves going for walks with her son or playing in the park. She likes preparing a nice meal or baking a sweet treat. Knitting is a fun and relaxing hobby for Kelly. She enjoys chilling on the couch with a warm blanket and a cup of chamomile tea.

Background

Kelly grew up in the Southern Most town in Canada. She enjoyed working on horse and crop farms as a young girl, as well as caring for her own little domestic animal farm at home. She appreciated hard work in the soil and often got her hands dirty and her feet wet. Kelly has an affinity for rocks that started in her childhood and continues to this day. She often uses crystals during her Reiki treatments.

Kelly is a Registered Nurse working part-time on an oncology unit. She began her nursing career in 2009 and has been dedicated to bedside patient care ever since.
