"As human beings, our greatness lies not so much in being able to remake the world...

as in being able to remake ourselves."

Mahatma Gandhi


It's never too late to have a wonderful life!

The whole idea behind Santa Cruz Reiki Works is to enable you to:

  • relax

  • access your inner wisdom and live authentically with your own true self

  • have less anger, less fear, less worry, less anxiety, less pain

  • heal your physical, mental, and emotional trauma

  • know that you are worthy, you are loved, and that you belong

  • be less involved with the drama and chaos in life

  • change behavioral patterns that aren't working for you anymore

"I had never had Reiki before, and my session with Joyce was nothing less than magical.  She has a calming presence and a healing touch that left me feeling deeply calm and rejuvenated.  

I am someone who can have a hard time relaxing but, almost immediately, I felt comfortable and nurtured in Joyce's care.  

I also really appreciate that Joyce is a wonderful balance of grounded (in that she isn't "woo-woo" and has a good head on her shoulders) and spiritual (in that Reiki practice is a way of life for her and well integrated into her own values).  I will definitely be recommending Joyce Leonard to my friends, both to those who have had a lot of Reiki before and those who are curious about giving it a try."

"I had never had a full reiki treatment before so I didn't really know what to expect.  Her studio is tucked away in a cozy residential area of Ben Lomond and has quite a peaceful aura when you walk inside.

And...Joyce is one of those rare, warm and lovely people who make you comfortable from the moment you meet them, so I immediately felt at ease discussing what had brought me there and what I was hoping to gain from my sessions. She explained that she operates a little differently from many reiki practitioners, in that she lets her intuition (and therefore her client) be her guide in determining what you need, not just telling you what she thinks you need, which seemed very logical.

After we chatted at length and I was resting on her table, she was able to guide me with her words so I could try to relax and get the most benefit from her healing energy work. After we finished I felt so calm (although a bit light headed) but I loved it and can't wait to go back.

It was perfect from the moment I arrived to the moment I left."
