She became interested in Reiki while in school and began her journey with energy work in 2000 with level 1 certification and then level 2 in 2001. Working with mind, body and spirit is an integral part of her work. In 2008 she became a Reiki master with the intention of teaching workshops and deepening her connection to this subtle healing art. Along the way she has also learned and provides reflexology treatments as well as studied Thai massage in Thailand. Alana has supported many births with a passion for supporting women throughout all stages of the childbirth experience, including pre natal, labour and post natal transitions.
Using these years of experience and techniques along with working collaboratively with the Robin’s Nest team of therapists Alana provides comprehensive treatments that aim to resolve clients issues mind body & spirit.
