Maija Kovalevska

My journey as a professional holistic therapist began in 2009 in Riga, Latvia (where I was born and grew up) when I gained my first massage diploma and started to work as a massage therapist and looked for something else to compliment my treatments. I could feel that working only with the physical body isn`t enough. Even after a great massage, after a while, people return with the same issues. Stress, anger and worry…all deeply affects mind and body and I wanted to learn how I might help on this deep level. Very soon Reiki came into my life.

Difficult to believe, I started learning Reiki without having even tried it myself, knowing just a little, trusting my intuition… finally, it opened up to me an amazing world that I realised I was already working within my life. Reiki is not just a healing system – it is a great tool for self-development with infinite possibilities for your life changes.

It has brought so many changes in my life and now it inspires me to do what I love – helping and healing people with relaxing Reiki treatments and sharing my direct experiences to my students on my courses.

I am a fully insured Reiki Master Teacher in the Usui Reiki Ryoho lineage and a member of Shibumi International Reiki Association and the founder of ‘Healing Hands Edinburgh The Reiki School’. Providing healing Reiki sessions and training in the heart of Edinburgh.
