The Gentle Soul: Susan O'Connell

The Gentle Soul: Susan O'Connell

Posted by Michele Zagorski on 23rd Jul 2018

I first met Susan when she walked into my skin care boutique in Ashland about 4 years ago.  We've spent hours over the years talking about skin, and our shared passion for horses. One of her favorite products is the Serum du Soleil, which has faded her sun spots, and gives her protection from photo-damage when she's out with her horses.  

Susan is one of those rare gentle souls that you treasure knowing, and I've always felt drawn to her peaceful and loving nature.  

Little did I know that Susan was a 3rd Degree Usui Reiki master.  I am happy to announce that she is offering Reiki sessions at the spa, and I asked her to explain the concept of Reiki for those that are not familiar with it.  Here's what she said:


"Reiki is an ancient healing art in which the limitless source of life force energy is channeled through one who has been attuned as a Reiki healer.

The Reiki energy has an intelligence far beyond human knowledge, and all it takes to activate it is placement of the healer’s hands on the positions or where there is pain. The energy will do the healing and do it well.

Permission of the receiver to be willing to receive Reiki is always asked for.

Reiki is pure source energy and as such it cannot cause any harm.

Reiki honors free will and the receiver has the choice to refuse the energy."
