DanaYoung - ReikiTeacher, Dragonfly Reiki Atlanta

About Dana

I am a healer, Reiki Master Teacher, life coach and spiritual director. I founded Dragonfly Reiki in 2008 with the goal of accompanying others on their journey to improved health, empowerment and meaningful life transformation through the healing arts.

My work focuses on how energy directly influences our emotional, physical and spiritual well-being, helping clients to restore balance. I have a highly intuitive style and am able to discern imbalances during sessions with my clients. Often, these imbalances reveal many things about the physical, emotional and spiritual work needed to bring about deep healing and change.

I am a certified Reiki pracitioner and teacher (Shihan) of Komyo Reiki Kai (now Komyo ReikiDo), and a direct student of Hyakuten Inamoto, a Japanese Buddhist monk and founder of this system. I am also certified as a Reiki Master Teacher in the Usui/Tibetan Reiki lineage. I’m trained in or knowledgeable of other energy healing modalities.

I am a certified life coach, focusing on spiritual development and holistic wellness. In addition to the classes and workshops I offer at Dragonfly Reiki, I also co-facilitate a weekly Scripture-based small group, and teach spiritual formation classes.

Helping you feel better, naturally

People often ask me how Reiki healing can help them live a healthier, more balanced life.  The people I’ve treated come from all walks of life and many areas of the world!

Many who come for a Reiki session are seeking emotional healing, including relief from stress, anxiety or depression. Others want help managing symptoms of chronic health conditions, including pain conditions, insomnia, cancer, dementia, autoimmune disease, and more.  I’ve had Reiki sessions with people living with HIV, PTSD, and those recovering from surgery, strokes, car accidents and other physical trauma, including spinal cord injury.  Reiki treatment is a wonderful complement to conventional Western medical and therapeutic treatment, and can help people feel more centered and empowered in their own healing process.

A number of my clients have gone on to take Reiki training with me to support their wellness, which is a testament to the benefits they’ve received from treatment. Spouses and caregivers have also come to me to learn Reiki to provide healing support to their loved ones – and to keep themselves in balance. Increasingly, I’m teaching health care professionals (doctors, nurses, physicians’ assistants, childbirth professionals) and massage therapists to incorporate Reiki treatment into their patient/client care and to maintain their own self-care.

Dana’s Reiki story

I received energy healing during a business trip to India in early 2006 that brought about immediate relief of neck and back pain. I’d suffered from chronic and sometimes debilitating cervical spine pain for two decades.  To be completely pain-free in a few hours was an experience that changed my perception of “healing” from being something that others managed for me (often, with limited results) to something my body was fully capable of initiating and sustaining on its own by reconnecting with the energy of the universe. It was life-changing.

I know, it sounds like such a cliché to have a spiritual awakening in India, but that’s exactly what happened. I had visited many temples, received puja, and reveled in the spiritual abundance interwoven in the fabric of daily life in India during my business trips there. But it was a very ordinary morning, after breakfast and before heading out for another day at the office, when I had a brief encounter with an energy healer who gave me a glimpse into what was possible with healing – and what my future was going to be – simply by asking, “Is there something paining you?”

I returned to the U.S. with the intention of learning a self-healing practice to help take better care of myself. I had a stressful job as a manager for a global professional services firm. The long hours, travel, and time spent on the computer made me more susceptible to chronic pain and other stress-related issues. Anxiety and low-level depression were always hanging over my shoulder.

Once home, I found Reiki Ryoho, which has been instrumental in bringing about greater physical health, balance, emotional clarity, and spiritual growth into my life. Among other things, it eventually led to my profound healing of a disease called Interstitial Cystitis, which I had suffered from for years and was told was “incurable.” I no longer require medication or treatment for IC. I’m a lot happier, healthier and spiritually nourished. Reiki has been such a blessing and gift in my life, one that keeps on giving.

In time (and with encouragement from others), I realized my calling was to help others on their wellness journey and assist them in manifesting physical, emotional, and mental empowerment.  I am grateful for the opportunity to help others recognize their own healing and life purpose potential through holistic healing, Reiki training, and coaching.

Reiki is constantly present in my daily life. I practice Reiki treatment daily for self-care and balance. I use Reiki healing as “first aid” for bumps, bruises and aches, and to assist with issues that require medical attention – including life-threatening situations. My family and friends request Reiki if they are hurting. Whenever there is a need for healing touch and comfort, my Reiki hands are there.

I believe it’s important for us to honor and nurture our body, mind and spirit.  As I am fond of saying, we are our own best healers!  I am honored to be of assistance to you in your healing and spiritual journey.
