Reiki Master Teacher

Maija Kovalevska

the founder of Healing Hands Edinburgh the Reiki School

My name is Maija Kovalevska, I am a Reiki Master and the founder of Healing Hands Edinburgh The Reiki School. My Reiki journey started in 2009 still in Latvia, my original country. At that time I was looking for something to complement my massage therapies as I could feel that it wasn’t enough to work just with the body to get somebody better. At that time I didn't know much about Reiki and when I went for my first training the main intention was "Helping Others".  I had no idea what changes Reiki was going to bring into my life. In a few months, it took me out of my country and brought me to the UK where I went through many different challenges while discovering my abilities, learning and also practising Reiki working with myself.

In that period of time I learned a lot, I started discovering myself and did find out that it is possible to find peace of mind, that I am responsible for my stress level and I choose to be positive or negative, and also how exciting it is to go through my spiritual path doing what you like. All that and the passion I felt for Reiki took me to embrace it as my full-time job.

In 2017 I started to teach Reiki and, at the very beginning, the main idea was to create a Reiki school to build up a Reiki community where everyone can try, learn or discover.
