Who I Am and What I Do

Grace Alvarez Sesma, Reiki Master

I’ve been a professional Reiki Therapist since 1993. I’m a passionate and compassionate healer dedicated to helping my clients move through a wide range of physical, emotional and spiritual transitions with ease and grace.

Through direct personal experience, I have found that Reiki enhances one's meditative and spiritual practice and helps open the pathway to reclaiming our innate ability to heal and bring our life more fully into balance. Reiki's beauty, simplicity, and gentle efficacy is easy to learn and compatible with other healing practices. Persons from all walks of life are welcomed into my Reiki circle.

I believe in and encourage a thoughtful blending of complementary holistic practices with a doctor's conventional medical treatments, as may be appropriate. Rather than an either/or approach, I seek to incorporate spiritual energy healing modalities such as Reiki, with Western conventional medicine in order to address the whole person: body, emotions, mind, relationships, and spirit. 


Clients who are referred to me by their physician receive support that can promote responding more satisfactorily to conventional healthcare treatment. Sessions become a part of the client's overall individual treatment plan with me providing feedback to physicians as part of their treatment team.

I am also a cultural practitioner of traditional Mexican Indigenous Healing. In order to avoid conflating  Reiki with that tradition,  and with respect for the unique etiquette and protocols of Indigenous customs, I maintain a separate website for Curanderismo, the Healing Art of Mexico.


I travel and teach extensively and live half of the year in the beautiful Colorado Rocky Mountains, land of the Arapaho People, and on the land of the Kumeyaay Nation in Southern California the other half.  I am married to Qigong Grandmaster and traditional healer, Ken Cohen. Our blended family includes three wonderful daughters and five grandsons.
