she/her & they/them pronouns

Welcome, y'all! I'm AmariYah, an energy healing practitioner living in central Ohio. I am inspired by my Granny's golden remedies, restorative presence, and love. 


I currently offer relaxation sessions through Reiki, a gentle healing system with origins in Japan, and additional techniques to connect clients with their core self and the practice of rest. During a session, we'll create space together to learn what that may feel like for you. 

I dream about wider support for self-led healing and the ways this can positively influence our collective healing as a society. I am passionate about uncovering pathways to healing for and with oppressed communities.


I appreciate glittery stickers, bike rides through pine forests, sharing meals with soon-to-be-friends, and processing generational hurt with loved ones. 


Along with my 4+ years of practicing and teaching Reiki, my training includes:

  • a Usui Reiki Master Certification (2016),

  • an Herbal Medicine Intensive with Stonefruit Community Herbalists (2019),

  • and a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology from Xavier University (2010).


My work is deeply influenced by my time as higher education professional, diversity, equity, and inclusion consultant, advocate, and auntie.
