Reiki and Therapeutic Massage in Mt. Kisco: Most clients marvel at how much better they feel after a session.

Lisanne Elkins was a freelance writer when she discovered her profound interest in alternative health—a passion that led to a career in massage therapy with a specific focus on energy work. She’s been practicing in her Main Street office in Mount Kisco for almost 20 years, offering the personal healing power of Reiki and the therapeutic benefits of massage complemented by energy work.

In 2012, Elkins became a Reiki master in the Usui lineage, an experience that inspired her to publish an article about the technique. “Those who come for a Reiki treatment have their own personal needs and reasons for doing so, but the end result is almost always that they feel more centered, more comfortable and have a greater sense of well-being,” she says. “My Reiki clients come weekly or every other week for treatment. Whether their issues involve daily challenges, emotional struggles or illness, most of them marvel at how much better they feel after a session.”

Elkins’s general massage practice incorporates many areas of study, from basic Swedish massage to energy work such as Chinese acupressure, craniosacral techniques, aromatherapy and Reiki. Elkins also studied healing with natural herbs and plants under author and herbalist Susun Weed; she incorporates this knowledge in her practice when applicable.

Elkins says she will be continuing her work with both basic and more advanced massage techniques and plans to eventually teach Reiki I and II workshops in her community.
