About Me

My name is Eric Russell, and I am a certified reiki master therapist and energy reader/interpreter living in the heart of San Francisco, California. 


When I was teenager, I was introduced to energy work by my mother. I remember being interested in how she could literally help people feel completely at ease and heal many parts of themselves - including physical, mental, and spiritual aspects. There were times when I wished I had a similar gift to provide others. It wasn't until later (and much more recently) that I discovered that I also possess an intuitive ability to use energy to yield positive outcomes, in addition to helping people understand and interpret their unique energetic blueprint on Earth.


And as an energy intuitive, I deeply believe that we all have within us a divine spark that is waiting to be ignited and transformed into a brilliant flame. This flame is our soul's true essence and potential, which is intended to illuminate our path and who we are in this lifetime. With energy work, not only does it provide myself and others that I work on with a sense of inner peace, purpose, and healing, but it also helps to ignite this flame and bring into conscious awareness the connection to our higher self - the part of ourselves that provides us with unconditional love and unwavering guidance. 

This is what I love about doing energy work. It can be a deeply relaxing, healing experience. But it can also be a profoundly uplifting and inspirational experience. Ultimately, it is the intention of the individual that helps me conduct energy work that can be customized and tailored to their needs.
