Linda Simons has been practicing healing for over 35 years. She was drawn to the field of healing when she attended Spiritualist churches in the late 1970’s where she received her training in laying-on-of-hands and distance healing. She brings an intuitive, empathetic approach to her healing work. Linda began her study of Reiki in 2010 and received her Reiki Master attunement from Healing Today in 2011. She has treated family, friends and their pets to Reiki and has performed Reiki on fellow meditators at Unity Boston Church in Brookline.
Reiki is a powerful yet gentle healing modality that utilizes life force energy to restore balance by reducing stress and creating a sense of deep relaxation. Linda believes that the Reiki practitioner is a channel for releasing the inherent healing energy that we all possess. She has seen evidence that Reiki relieves pain, removes energy blockages and accelerates the body’s self-healing abilities. Linda is committed to sharing this tool for healing in a community setting and is very excited about joining the Acupuncture for Everyone clinic because she has benefited tremendously as an acupuncture client herself for the past two years after injuring her back. She is a firm believer in the mind-body connection and energy medicine.
Linda is also a psychic tarot reader and astrologer with over 30 years of experience in giving readings. Healing, transformation and tools for empowerment are the core principles of her readings and healings. She also writes an astrology blog called Dance of the Phoenix.
