About Me

Do you remember...

... the woman you used to be... fun, happy and ready to take on the world?

What if I told you that you could be your authentic self again?

Really stop and imagine that for a minute. Humor me -- close your eyes and feel that joy. Are you buzzing and tingling with excitement? Feeling light like you could float away? How incredible would it feel for that to be your norm instead of being stressed, exhausted and dealing with health problems? 

Reiki can connect you, to you! And in the process, will balance your mind, body and spirit.

Let me introduce myself.

I’m Lisa Baker, a Reiki Master based in Chicago who loves helping people like you relax, de-stress and heal from the energy blockages your busy life has left in its wake.

MY JOURNEY

When I was 30, I was miserable and unfulfilled working in corporate America doing something I didn't love. Dealing with all the b.s. at my job left me too exhausted to spend much time with friends and family which sent my stress levels skyrocketing -- I felt like I was letting everyone down, myself included.

MY BODY RETALIATED

In 2004, I developed Graves (Thyroid) Disease. I gained 80 pounds in my sleep one night. My memory was shot. I wasn’t sleeping. I felt lousy every minute of every day. And I couldn’t get the scale to budge no matter how healthy I ate or how much I exercised.

I had my thyroid removed in 2005. I still had all the side effects of autoimmune thyroid disease plus now I was getting pneumonia nonstop. I saw countless doctors who wanted to help but didn't know how to. I refused to accept I'd spend the rest of my life ill, so I turned to alternative medicine.

I tried it all -- craniosacral therapy, acupuncture, Chinese medicine, intuitive energy healing, color therapy and many others. They all helped but were too costly to continue. My gut told me I could fix myself if I just found the right thing.

THEN I DISCOVERED REIKI, AND IT’S BEEN A LIFE-CHANGER

I spent an entire decade lying on my couch, devoid of the energy to do anything. I stopped being the creative, light-hearted, quirky, witty and funny girl, always smiling with a mischievous sparkle in her eyes. Instead, I became extremely introverted, quiet, awkward and withdrew in every way. I also got so angry over small, unimportant things all day long.

WITH REIKI, I’M LIVING AGAIN

I’ve never slept better. I rarely get sick. I’m not in pain. I’m calm most of the time -- the things that set me off no longer bother me at all. I'm on a much lower dose of my thyroid medication because my energy is no longer blocked. I've even lost 20 pounds without exercising! I’m still a work in progress, but I’m remembering who I truly am and am stepping into all that is. It’s mind-blowing and fun, and every day I wake up excited to see what happens next.

I LEARNED REIKI TO HEAL MYSELF, AND NOW I WANT TO HELP YOU

Regardless of whether you are so stressed your sanity is hanging by a thread, or have health issues (or both), I was where you are. I’ve lived it and I’ve come out the other side even better than before. Are you sick and tired of being sick and tired? I'd be honored to help you!

Please contact me, and together, we can change your life too.
