Sandy Macksey, CR
Sandy is from North Adams, Massachusetts which is located in the beautiful hills of the northern Berkshire area. She began her spiritual journey in 2002, completing Usui Shiki Ryoho Reiki Level 1 to final completion as a Reiki Master in 2011. Those years providing Reiki sessions to friends, relatives, colleagues, Sandy realized there was so much more that she needed to expand her knowledge in as she found herself always drawn to working with the feet for many years. Sandy would apply pressure to areas on the feet that felt energy pockets and noticed how massaging those areas gave relief to them for back pain or headaches. She realized then her next journey would bring her to explore Reflexology, becoming certified in 2013. She completed her in-class two year certification with the Laura Norman Reflexology Center and a year and a half of case studies and documentation for hand, face, ears and feet. During those years, Sandy also completed two years studying shamanic practices at Spirit Hollow in Shaftsbury, Vermont.
Recently, she completed a Level I Wisdom of the Earth Medicinal Aromatherapy certification in November 2016. Sandy has found all these modalities to be the most amazing and gratifying experiences. Sandy is committed to continuing her holistic education with Energy Medicine practices, vibration healing and many others to enhance her skills and knowledge to provide clients with many types of integrative alternatives to heal and relieve pain from chronic conditions and disease. Her sessions are relaxing, powerful, energizing and freeing! Most clients feel the benefits immediately. Some clients may need to allow the energy to work through them for a day or so to then feel a shift with positive results. Come experience your body's healing and expansion.
Sandy now lives in Newington with her husband, Mark, & their chocolate lab, Lexie. They love camping, hiking, kayaking, and spending time with their grandchildren, Tanner, Ariana and Dylan.
Sandy is grateful for the opportunity to work with you to achieve all your health goals. She looks forward to meeting you!
