Sandra Cooze, Reiki Master,
Sandra joined Body Kneads in the fall of 2019 as a Reiki Master/Teacher, Writer and Certified Coach, focusing on life transformation and trauma. Her passion and dedication for trauma healing was born as a result of her own traumatic past. (see http://riseaboveyourstory.com/my-story/)
Sandra studied Reiki from 2010 – 2012 at the Beaumont Hospital in Warren, Michigan and has been practicing and teaching ever since.
Through Reiki and other spiritual and holistic modalities, she was able to fully transform and heal her own emotional pain. She understands the effects trauma can have on the entire body, recognizing pattern and behavior similarities in clients and discovered a road map to successful trauma healing.
Today, she helps trauma survivors heal and overcome their emotional pain, take back their lives, rise above their story and discover who they truly are.
Sandra looks forward to serving the clients by offering Reiki Treatments, Transformational Coaching Sessions and Reiki Certification Classes.
