Courtney G. Smith, aka The Reiki G, is a Chicago based traveling Reiki Master. Courtney was first introduced to Reiki in 2013. She was having chronic pain, and a Reiki Master she met suggested she give Reiki a try to help deal with the pain. Two years after that, her Reiki Master friend Angela Mayah Solstice strongly encouraged Courtney to take her Reiki Level I and II classes to continue her healing journey. In 2015, Courtney began providing Reiki for her family and random animals that popped up in her backyard.
In 2018, Courtney began seeing clients regularly at Haji Healing Salon (Haji) located in Chicago, IL. The following year, Courtney began volunteering her services with I Grow Chicago, a non-for-profit whose mission is “to grow Englewood from surviving to thriving through community connection, skill building, and opportunity.” It was here that Courtney would cultivate exercises for participants to do after their Reiki sessions. The exercises were designed to allow participants to continue to shift the energy inside of them so that they could ultimately begin to shift the energy around them. Courtney realized that it was important for her to give people exercises that did not entail spending a lot of money on crystals, essential oils, etc.
After the participants at I Grow Chicago began to have great results from the exercises Courtney gave them, she began to give the same exercises to her clients at Haji. She discovered that her clients who did the exercises consistently began to have major shifts in their lives. One client who was consistent with the homework received a promotion at work, began dating someone new, and started mending relationships she previously thought had been destroyed permanently.
In the fall of 2019, Courtney received her Reiki Master Certification from Keystone Healing Center located on Chicago's northside. The year before Courtney received additional Reiki I, II, and III training at Keystone. After receiving her Reiki Master certification, Reiki made the tough decision to leave Haji to branch out on her own. Courtney’s overall goal is to equip people with the tools needed to raise their vibration so that they can enhance their lives and thrive. Courtney offers Reiki Level I, II and III training and certification, several packages including one designed to assist clients with their careers, private in-person and distant Reiki sessions.
"I had the pleasure of taking Courtney’s Reiki course last weekend and it was so affirming and profound! She has a way of teaching that makes the student feel so comfortable in learning the material. I was so shocked to hear that she had only taught one Reiki practitioner before our course because she knows her material so well and the process was so natural! I am so excited to take on her teachings and apply them to my own Reiki practice. Learning from and being attuned by Courtney was a great decision! I will be taking another one of her courses when I get the chance! ❤" - Cammy S.
