About Cynthia

As a Reiki Master with over 15 years in public practice, I am glad to earn my living doing what I enjoy most. Reiki treatments and classes let me work with people to explore their lives as conscious, enlightened human beings in the here-and-now, whatever their circumstances might be.

I am committed to the profound simplicity and power of Reiki, particularly as held in the form Usui Shiki Ryoho. I trace my lineage beginning with my own beloved teacher Frank Coppieters, back through Phil Morgan, Phyllis Lei Furumoto, Hawayo Takata, and Chujiro Hayashi, to Mikao Usui.

I opened my first Reiki practice, Sister Moon Reiki, in Portland in 1998. Since then, Reiki has supported my passion for travel and has taken me around the world through my affiliation with The Reiki Alliance. I lived and taught in Fairbanks, Alaska for seven years before returning to Oregon. I established Reiki Works in Redmond, Oregon in 2007. Since returning to Portland, Iā€™m glad to have found a new home for my practice in the offices of Essential Family Medicine.
