I have been a Reiki Master/Teacher for many years, but my gift for healing broken hearts, bodies and minds began at the age of 8. My grandmother was a healer and somehow the gift of healing became a part of me when I spent a year with her in Berlin, Germany.
In the years that followed, I became very aware that I was able to feel people's pain and suffering.
I could intuitively see and understand what their physical condition was, how it happened and what the emotional connection was.
As the years went by, I wanted more and more to help those who were suffering. I became a Reiki Master, so that I could be an even more effective healer. My teacher said this in a testimonial after I took her classes over a 1 year period.
"As Caterina's Reiki Master, I am truly impressed by the high degree of medical intuition she naturally has. Caterina is also able to offer sound advice as to how to deal with those issues of concern. Anyone seeking therapy from Caterina will greatly benefit from her intuitive gifts and competence as a Reiki Master." Bonnie S - Reiki Master/Teacher, Calgary, AB
I started a Professional Medical Intuitive Reiki Practice and first worked with infertile women, who were medically sound to become pregnant, by noticing blockages within their bodies and the emotional pain attached to the blockage. Using Reiki and helping them to understand the emotional side of their physical blocks, helped them to conceive without further medical intervention.
I soon realized that people who came to me, also required coaching, so I became a Professional Life Coach and NLP Practitioner.
One day, I had a client who was away on holidays and I could not see her personally for a session. So we did a session over the phone. In that session I used my powers of intuition, Reiki and coaching skills to help her create physical and emotional pain relief.
Since then, I have helped men and women around the globe, over the phone. I do in person consults when I travel and in my office on Vancouver Island. Whether you choose me as your medical intuitive Reiki Master remotely or in person, your life will be transformed.
My work today, includes intuitive Reiki and several relaxation techniques including meditation and visualization.
When you come to a Reiki session with me, you will feel a healing energy and a deep sense of relaxation. This can be on an emotional, physical and sometimes even a spiritual level. Most of my clients report feeling very relaxed, like they have had an hour-long massage. Some feel more energized, have less physical pain, and/or a deep release of emotional pain that has haunted them for a long period of time. Some even experience a spiritual awakening or re-awakening.
As a Reiki Master and Medical Intuitive, I have worked with many people over the years, including:
Medical sound infertile women
Patients in hospital who want natural pain management
Cancer patients who need pain relief
People with aches and pains,
people who want to feel more grounded, People with emotional pain
People who want to release old thought patterns
Those who want to achieve more, love themselves more, and most importantly, people who are ready for big changes in how they are in their relationships.
My journey also led me to people who were in the last phases of their life, and I have worked remotely with those in hospital and their families to help them navigate their loved ones last days . Helping people to feel at peace in their final hours and bringing peace to those in the room, is a rare gift.
WHAT IS REIKI
Reiki is a form of therapy that uses simple hands-on or remote visualization techniques, with the goal of improving the flow of life energy in a person. Reiki (pronounced ray-key) means "universal life energy" in Japanese, and Reiki practitioners are trained to detect and alleviate problems of energy flow on the physical, emotional, and spiritual levels. Reiki is used in much the same way to achieve similar effects that traditional massage therapy is used —to relieve stress, pain and emotional trauma and to improve the symptoms of various health conditions.
Reiki provides many of the same benefits as traditional massage therapy, such as reducing stress, stimulating the immune system, increasing energy, and relieving the pain and symptoms of health conditions. Reiki practitioners have reported success in helping patients with acute and chronic illnesses, from asthma to arthritis to trauma and recovery from surgery. It is currently being taught to medical students at several colleges and universities around North America.
Reiki is a gentle and safe technique, and has been used successfully in some hospitals and dentist offices. It has been found to be very calming and reassuring. Doctors, nurses, psychologists and other health professionals can use Reiki to bring touch that conveys deep caring to their healing practices.
A Reiki Session
Reiki sessions can take various forms. I do long-distance (remote) Reiki over the phone. A session is usually a half-hour or one hour long.
As the practitioner, I use mental visualization to offer healing energy to specific areas of the receiver's body that need it. Advanced practitioners rely on intuition and experience to determine which areas of a body need the most energy healing.
There are over 20 positions on both sides of the body where the hands are placed virtually. The positions begin at the crown of the head and move towards the feet.
The receiver might experience sensations in their body, either where the practitioner is working or elsewhere. Sensations may include heat, cold, or tingling in the arms and legs.. The receiver might also experience a growling stomach sound or fluttering eyelashes.
The practitioner will stay in a particular position to allow for deeper healing until the receiver and practitioner feel the temperature returning to normal. It is helpful for both the giver and receiver to attempt to maintain an attitude of awareness, openness, and caring.
Reiki practitioners recommend that those receiving Reiki for the first time go through a series of three or four treatments over the course of about a week to allow for cleansing and the initial readjustment of energy.
Reiki generally has no side effects, as it is a very low impact, gentle treatment. The body will do what it needs to and Reiki cannot hurt you. It can only help. Some receivers report tingling or sensations of heat or cold during treatment. Others report some anxiety at the beginning of the treatment, and this completely vanishes within moments. Some practitioners claim that anxiety in a Reiki Session is about buried or repressed emotions being released by the new energy flow.
The link between emotional and physical pain and dis-ease is significant. It's my joy to help you release the emotional pain so that you can release your physical pain and visa versa.
When we do a Remote Reiki Session together, you will feel a healing energy and a deep sense of relaxation. This can be on an emotional, physical and sometimes even a spiritual level. Most of my clients report feeling very relaxed, like they have had an hour-long massage. Some feel more energized, have less physical pain, and/or a deep release of emotional pain that has haunted them for a long period of time. Some even experience a spiritual awakening or re-awakening.
The long term benefits of remote reiki are unlimited. When a client is energetically plugged in with me, amazing things can happen during the remote reiki session. From clients who are medically sound and infertile, to patients in hospital who need pain relief, I work remotely to help the healing process. If healing is not in the cards, then my work is about comfort, relaxation, and pain management.
"In this world of instant 'response, gratification, and information, this may seem to have taken a long time to write. Trust me, the work that Caterina has been doing for myself and for our family, has never stopped from the date in May, when, in a flash of an eye, our world changed. On that day a member of our immediate family was hit on his way to work, by a big ol' SUV. The details are private. What needs to be shared, with deep gratitude, belief and love, is the incredible healing work that was done by Caterina daily, to keep our beloved on a healing path. Caterina was already my friend, and for that alone, I am grateful. And when we needed her, she was more than a generous friend. She worked tirelessly with us to ensure that each of us was able to support one another. Sit with that for a moment. She enabled us to break down any barrier, barriers of geography, injury, fear, hopelessness, and to instead, reach each other in powerful, healing love. It works and continues to work now, months after the accident. And when I fell into my own black hole over this, she pulled me out. Her abilities are remarkable. Her dedication is her gift to us. This world needs healers and the universe has given us Caterina. I continue to work by her stunning example of love, friendship, and faith.
"Caterina recently helped me through a fairly major crisis. She did it methodically, rationally and calmly. She helped me see a truth I didn't even realize existed. I made quite a change immediately afterwards and couldn't be happier now. This lady knows how to talk you through it.
I highly recommend her services."
"You are amazing. Don't know what we would have done without You when Jeff was in ICU. I wholeheartedly believe that you are the reason he finally got out of there for the final time and moved to high acuity. Believe me, I totally believe that he would not be here without your help You are amazing. Jeff and I thank you from the bottom of our hearts."
”So often when a crisis hits us, we need a helping hand right at that moment. Caterina's remarkable energy work and remote Reiki make this possible for her clients. She has an extraordinary ability to reach out and heal, comfort, guide, and soothe. Anyone who has an opportunity to work with this intuitive and delightfully loving healer should take that step.”
"Caterina Barregar is the real deal! I had tried Reiki out in the past, and although I always felt calm and relaxed afterwards I had never felt that the practitioner had really “seen” me. Caterina’s sessions are completely different. She welcomes you like an old friend and is one of the kindest and most loving people I have ev...er met. Her sessions are truly a collaborative process. She uses her incredible intuition skills to ask you laser-pointed questions, and then from the answers you give, she guides the energy to where it can help you the most. You leave feeling lighter, happier, and more balanced. But the big pay-off comes after having a number of sessions with her: authentic transformation. Thank you ."
"Caterina is the real thing. If you want to experience real change in your life and your are ready to change, Caterina can help you. Her powerful combination of coaching and Reiki has been a catalyst for change for so many. I unreservedly recommend her to you. "
"If you have ever wondered about Reiki therapy...... You must try Caterina . She is amazing! The energy she heals with feels amazing. Stress levels go from 8-0 in a few minutes. :)"
"I had a beautiful Reiki session with Caterina Barregar today. It was incredible. She is a coach, a mentor and an inspiration. "
"I recommend her to any woman looking to 'feel empowered, change your limiting belief patterns, find your purpose, your passion, and begin to feel like you are worthy again.' I am true advocate for continued self-discovery. Those dis-empowering beliefs slip back in and wreak havoc on our true life's purpose all too often. "
***The world yearns for you to step into your greatness. truly*** 'Let Love be your Compass' and let your inner wisdom guide you."
"Caterina has a natural ability to read energy and recognize blockages to healing that can often not be taught. It is something that has to come naturally to a person. Caterina is a gifted intuitive and Reiki is perfect for her unique abilities. Since those initial sessions I have sent many of my own clients to her and always with impressive results or insights into what was preventing them from finding the healing they are looking for."
"Caterina is highly intuitive and calming to be around. She has great awareness as to what is going on with you, even if you are not consciously aware of it. After working with Caterina, I felt much more relaxed and also energized to get things accomplished. Caterina is dedicated to be of service to her clients and she goes out of her way to help you make connections that are just what you need."
"Wow Thank You Caterina. I went into a vertigo spin and thank goodness you were on line and I believe my assistant was here. All I do remember is you helping me through the spin with a guided meditation. I rarely have anxiety or stress as I practice yoga and meditate regularly but I was not in good shape, I believe I was in a full blown anxiety attack. You stayed with me and helped me through it and gave me resources to prevent further attacks. You have no idea how grateful I am for the help you offered that day! "
"Long distance Reiki rocks! Cat, thank you for sharing your incredible healing gift with the world - and with me. "
"As Caterina's Reiki Master, I am truly impressed by the high degree of medical intuition she naturally has. Caterina is also able to offer sound advice as to how to deal with those issues of concern. Anyone seeking therapy from Caterina will greatly benefit from her intuitive gifts and competence as a Reiki Master. "
"Caterina is a very gifted healer. You can feel her love and warmth and soft vibration when your near her and it soothes & calms down your soul. I came to Caterina to feel more grounded. Her Reiki technique is amazing for calming the central nervous system and she uses her intuitions and fingertips to seek the route of the problem. What I like the most about Caterina's healing and life coaching is that she helps bring you into the present. And also uncovers unbalanced chakras and then sends her healing energy to remove blocks and focus on the specific areas of pain and why we are effected in our specific chakras by emotional pain we carry from the past. Caterina helps us to let it go. It is gift. Thank you, Caterina. Looking forward to more sessions."
"Caterina is one of those kind, beautiful people we all wish might come into our lives. Just when I needed her, she was there and continues to be there while I work through my issues...physical, mental and emotional. A Reiki session with Caterina is pure peace. She is incredibly intuitive but also very intelligent and practical. To know Caterina is to love her and to realize how lucky you are to have her there for your personal healing journey. "
"I met Caterina by being “in the right place at the right time” and that was my first indication that she came into my life for a reason. At that time I was struggling just to keep a seat at the back of the emotional roller coaster ride called “infertility”. I had tried counselling but didn’t feel I was making progress. However, after my very first session with Caterina I could feel the weight being lifted and a renewed sense of hope creeping back in. She knew immediately where I was at emotionally and physically using her natural abilities. After follow up sessions I (and others around me) noticed positive changes in my mindset and overall energy levels. Caterina has not only helped me on my infertility journey - she has helped me connect with the past, improve my relationships and career in the present and look forward to the future with hope. Caterina truly has a gift for connecting with and healing her clients in a gentle way, offering the right suggestions for action and reflection. I’m very grateful to Caterina for her help and would recommend anyone struggling with emotional or physical problems to pay her a visit - you will get more than you came for. "
"I am very selective about who I will let work on me for energy healing. Not all healers are created equal and it is up to us to trust our own inner guidance before allowing someone to enter our field. Yesterday's reiki healing with Caterina Barregar was exquisite. She is masterful as a healer and has the spiritual maturity to assist you in processing the messages. "
"I have been gifted with a very unique talent for seeing beyond the pain of the body and the mind, so that I can help YOU remove the energetic blocks that keep you from feeling your best.
When you are open to what Reiki can do, you will have an amazing experience.
You will feel calmer, your blood pressure will go down, you will feel less pain, and you will feel like you have had a very relaxing massage.
For those with specific physical pain, we will look at when it started, where it came from, and create healing in the area of concern. "
