Read what some of our clients and students have to say. We look forward to your scheduling a session or attending an Usui Reiki Course with us.

I have spent years trying to get rid of the ‘past.’ ...[A]cknowledging what occurred is vastly different from condoning such experiences. My ability to heal was directly tied to my alleged grievous wounds. Also, a huge volume of unrecognized judgement about myself and situations. By reframing the story of travails into a courageous exploration of my own perceptions regarding; memory, victimhood, and the difference between accountability & responsibility. This allowed me to create a new way of being. Shelby guided nay assisted in this task of redemption. Now I know who I am. Someone who is constantly growing. Looking for new paths to venture along. The company name, The Center for Inner Healing and Balance, is appropriately termed. As our joint venture progressed it dawned on me that this what occurred. Healing and Balance.
Absolutely I have recommended this place of transformation. Will continue to do so.
I first met Shelby and Bob several years ago when I was going thru some major life challenges. I needed help releasing trapped emotions and incorrect thinking patterns that kept me in a very reactive place.
I wanted to find Clarity, Balance and Wholeness. To connect with my higher-self instead of allowing my ego to control me.
Shelby and Bob have helped me by using different healing modalities to help me heal my personal and physical issues. I have personally benefited greatly from those sessions and so have many of my friends and family. I still contact them whenever I feel stuck and need a session.
...If you are looking for emotional, spiritual, and or physical healing and growth I would suggest you make an appointment to experience the many gifts and talents they have to share. They are an asset to the community. I am Grateful for the services that they provide.
Shelby and Bob are unique and genuinely kind people. I was able to work through some challenging and difficult times in my life utilizing their skill set. A side note, they worked with my teenagers and I could see tangible changes in them as well. Including relief of a sports shoulder injury. Overall a great experience with tangible results.
[I now have p]eace for anxiety over questions about future. Very beneficial; some unexpected clearing of things I truly didn’t know I was feeling. Freeing. Forgiving.
My work with Shelby... has completely transformed my life! I’ve gone from living with chronic stress, overwhelm, blockages, anxiety and frustration to living with total peace, joy, freedom and abundance. I’m now living my purpose in my soul place and am happier and freer than I’ve ever been in my life. I’ve referred many friends and family members ... and they’ve had equally amazing, powerful and quick results.
I originally sought reiki and energy healing to address a serious autoimmune disorder that I had been struggling with on-and-off for most of my life. At the time, I was experiencing extreme fatigue, body pain, and a lack of zest for life.
I was looking for a natural alternative to the Western medicine approach, which included a lot of drugs with undesirable side effects. I believed that physical illness stems from an energy imbalance, and I was looking for help to rebalance and restore my energy system.
Working with Shelby, Bob, and others at the Center has given me my life back! Not only have ALL of my autoimmune symptoms gone away, but my labs no longer show any trace of dise-ease. My doctors are in awe. In addition to that, I have healed old traumas that created many of the energetic imbalances that were at the root of the illness. I feel physically and emotionally restored and alive!
My transformation occurred on all levels – physical, menta [sp], emotional, and spiritual. When I started this work I was feeling exhausted, depleted, empty inside, and feeling stuck in the monotony of day-to-day life struggles. As I progressed through the energy healing, my body started to feel energized and alive. My mind was stimulated with new creativity and new possibilities, and I reconnected with a deep sense of hope, excitement, and fulfillment in my life.
Call them now! You deserve to feel so good in your body and your life, and their energy healing work can help you get there in ways you can’t even imagine right now.
I reached out to Shelby in April, 2021. I called her in a desperate panic. My life was falling apart. She carefully guided me towards a journey of healing. After every session, I felt a little lighter and a little more myself. I often think about how things could have gone, if I hadn’t found the Center for Inner Healing and Balance, and all I can confirm is, that I am grateful to be where I am.
Shelby and Bob have also brought so much peace to our adopted children, through Body Code and Reiki sessions. Our family has made it to a place of greater joy, through the gift of healing.
... I had been struggling with so much anxiety, depression, fatigue, and illness for almost the past 2 years and I felt helpless and unaware of what to do. Shelby helped me release so many trapped emotions, traumas, and attachments that I’ve carried with me since I was a young child. It was such a non-invasive and comfortable process that really helped me connect with my inner and higher being. And after 2 months (there were many things to release), I now feel so free from mental illness and I feel control over my life again. It feels amazing and I feel so grateful!
Originally came for a very desperate last min reiki session just separating from my husband that all but refused to separate with me out of his pure panic. I was calling around town to find a same day appointment as he was headed back from being out of town.
Out if a dozen places, Shelby was the only person that got back to me. A last min appointment canceled. It was scheduled for a hour reiki session I believe. But that’s not what I was meant to experience turns out. I ended up crying hysterically and uncontrollably to Shelby feeling so comfortable with someone I just met. She talked to me for well over 2 hours. I ended up utilizing “the Body Code” I know that is what prompted me there at that time.
...I had allowed bad behavior and toxic patterns to dictate my life cut down my self worth and made my second guess who I was. I let it consume my potential, drain me of my strength ebe and self love until I lost my identity.
I was so broken, helpless and distraught. I had been bending for so long I finally broke and shattered into pieces. Working with you was the difference between falling back to a scary and extremely unhealthy existence and believing in my abilities and remembering my worth enough yo give me hope for the future and strength to make the very hardest transition of my life.
No amount of money would be unworthy of the compassion, peace, love, or fast knowledge you can learn or experience if you open your mind and ALLOW your soul, your entire being to express what it NEEDS to heal on Every level through these amazing wonderful generous kind people. No words can really express the true gratitude I have for them and this wonderful gift that, I know, without a doubt the universe/god put in my path at a certain time when I was on the edge. They truly care. When so many others are want to line their pockets and pretend to be spiritual, they spend the time you need with the utmost patience making you feel comfortable no matter if their beliefs differ from your own. (And mine did)
No matter your religion, your faith your spirituality, sex, gender, age etc. Everyone deserves to have the proper tools to understand that, you and you alone have the power to create your own heaven or hell here in this world. We are all made of energy with subconscious, conscious, unconscious minds. Spiritually, emotionally, energetically, mentally, physically we need to be able to go within to understand why we do the things we do or react or feel the way we do. Why physical pain sometimes stems from emotional trauma or emotional trauma creates unhealthy patterns causing us anger, dispare, sickness and so much more. Not only understand it but learn how to bring it to surface let it go and heal from it. There are so many facets to our mind body connection that unfortunately gets hidden intentionally by those in power for selfish greed and never becomes the type of common sense it should be. Whatever you are going through, whatever your experiencing, we all have trauma that needs to be addressed.
...THERE ARE WAYS TO OVERCOME, LET IT GO AND LIVE A HAPPIER HEALTHIER EXISTENCE. Luckily, if your reading this, you now know one of the tricks to getting closer. You just have to [b]e willing to give it the effort it and you deserve.
I have been helping my son with an addiction/trauma issue for more than four years. Someone recently said to me that I had trauma and if I worked on my own (with a somatic type therapy) it might help my son. When he said that I realized I had the book Emotion Code and dove in. I realized I liked the method/idea of it, but could use some help by a practitioner. Somehow I found your website! I had several sites open, but your picture was so nice and there were the Barbara Evans prints in the background! I am so grateful I followed the guidance to you! I was also having some health challenges. I didn't know if they were related, but now I am feeling so good in mind, body, and emotion - I think they were.
I just had no idea. I wasn't sure about my trauma, but when we started talking, it seemed to easily become conscious, but in a peaceful and easy way. I was hoping to help my children and for me too, sure, but I didn't know what that would look like.
WOW, ... the outcome was a Huge Success! I felt relief after talking to you by phone to set up our first appointment. We covered many things in the sessions and in each blessed moment I felt like I got more of my sweet self and soul back! ...[T]he Body Code work was miraculous! It seemed like issues with my family members that were stuck, just seemed to unravel. I went through all of my important relationships and each one started to feel miraculously better. I loved how I didn't have to recall all of the things and that some things just came up with the Body Code system and we didn't even need to discuss them!
Shelby was sure to tell me she was facilitating - not doing the healing per se, but I wasn't able to get there myself. I really felt like my spirit team was there and even Jesus! I am SO GRATEFUL and THANKFUL to you!!
One amazing transformation was my nervous system was so overwhelmed and now I feel so calm and collected - just really amazing in my body. I also feel like it will never be overwhelmed again. I had several health symptoms going on, which have all ceased. I also was caught up in a hypochondriac spin, only focusing on the health issues, but realized after a few sessions my body needed me to work on some things and I am so much more in charge of my thoughts in general and about my physical health.
So many years of trying to soothe a challenging past - now is completely soothed and that little sneaky feeling of when could it come back - is just NOT there. I did not think I could let some of the worry and all go, but I have. It seems to be channeled more to a helpful and healthful place now. I feel like I could actually have fun or joy for real. I could show that before on the outside (people would think I was joyful maybe), but NOW, I really feel that way on the inside! I will be capable of showing up like how I really feel. I have started to express emotions, but also let a lot of resentments and irritations just go. I am also so much more engaged in a positive way with my sons and parenting.
I was wondering how to tell everyone... ! I would say, will you please make an appointment ... to get your life back. Get on your path to joy. To make it easier to be on your mission at this time in the world and with everything that happened in the past. You can free yourself from that with this work ... and it will be one of the most important things you do for yourself and your loved ones! Thank you so much!
I was dealing with trauma...
There was pain, sadness, unworthiness and insecurity for me all the time. I had lost my faith and was living in fear of what was going to go wrong next.
I really didn't even know. I knew I was searching to find answers, to feel and be better but I had no idea what that looked like. I was at a Reiki workshop and I had some siatic [sp] pain I had been feeling for years. Shelby asked me a few questions as we were standing talking casually and I did not know for sure what she was doing. Within a few minutes I felt relief from pain I had not felt in a long time.
It is very hard for me to put into words. Our work together was like setting my feet on a path I didn't even know existed. It was a path of self awareness and discovery that has become a blessed journey. There has been some dark times, facing shadows and overcoming fears. Everyday I learn more about who I am and was meant to be. My relationship with everyone I love is deeper and more meaningful. My relationship with myself is healing. I like me. Most of all, my relationship with my higher power, for me that is Jesus Christ, is richer and deeper. I feel more genuine, I feel more connected and I have a deeper sense of worth and peace.
My life will never be the same. I have a better understanding of what healing I needed and how my body, my spirit and my mind work. It was the beginning of all the work I did and am doing. I will never be the same. I am deeply grateful everyday for this.
I was looking for someone who did reiki ... . Immediately I felt a connection and bond that has lasted for 3 years. I wanted to balance my energy and to feel relaxed. Later I tried various therapies that [were] offered and I found them helpful.
I feel more focused and at peace. I have learned a lot about myself and the control in charge of my own destiny.
Treat yourself and explore your inner-self.
I went through a pretty traumatic break-up. During my relationship I dealt with mental, emotional, psychological and post break physical abuse. I was struggling with self-worth, low self-esteem, and also some victim mentality.
I really wanted to invest in my overall health and mental state. I wanted to break the cycle of bad relationships, I wanted to change my thought process about myself, my limitations, and unhealthy thoughts.
...[Shelby] helped me navigate through a lot of my troubles and helped me get past my past. [She] helped me define my path forward and grow my self-awareness and growth.
I have recommended some family and friends ... since I started my therapy... . I talked to them about the type of work [done] and how it was different from other therapy I have tried in the past. Many of those people SAW the difference in me: how I presented myself, how I talked about myself, how I just overall felt.
...I was at a crossroads in my life in more ways then [sp] I was aware of. Covid started and I had lost everything in Los Angeles, California; home, business, relationships, etc. I decided to move in with my brother who relocated years earlier to Scottsdale, AZ.
I knew a little about emotion/body code but it was Shelby that walked [m]e down the path to healing with it.
I was depressed, angry, I was dealing with abandonment issues, I felt so alone. After a few sessions many of those issues were gone... . I really surrendered myself to the journey of healing... and my life started to move in the right direction, [l]iterally overnight. Working with Shelby brought me back to a state of peace and strength that I haven’t had in years. She helped me get my voice back and stand strong in who I was.
And then, after about 8 months of healing in Arizona, one night at three in the morning I decided it was time to go home. Even though I didn’t know where home was, I packed everything up in my car and left back to Los Angeles, California. From the day I got back my business took off and I’ve been none stop since; it was December 2020 when I came home.
All the preparation I did ... while in Arizona got me ready for January 2021. I figured out who was there for me and who wasn’t. I made peace with what is and what wasn’t and more importantly, what will never be. I got rid of a lot of life time relationships that I never realized were one-sided.
Since January 2021, Shelby and I have worked together via Zoom and I will continue to always stay connected to her. I would tell anyone looking to start the healing journey, a lot can happen in a short amount of time when you’re working with the right people. I would advise you to take those steps..., you’ll be happy you did sooner rather then later.
I was in a place where I needed healing in my life. I had suffered from past traumas. Initially I came to do Reiki session, but then I had discovered the Body Code session. I was looking for peace and something new. I have been to multiple counselors seeking help and nothing worked.
I was aiming for help with solutions, and learning how to heal, coping skills for my life. All of these thing naturally without having to take any medications I had previously been prescribed by psychiatrists.
The help I have received..., is the help I have been looking for for years. Each session ... I walk away lighter, peaceful, fulfilled.
Being a part of Center for Inner Healing and Balance ... has given me the ability to let go of my past traumas, and I have been feeling the effect. I feel like my traumas are falling away and I am feeling more peaceful, without having to take any medications.
The transformation I have noticed really is night and day. My life has become more positive and prosperous. I have been the happiest I have been in years.
I would absolutely recommend [the center's] services to all of my friends seeking healing and peace. I feel like many people could benefit from the Body Code, and finally get the help that they are looking for that conventional therapy might not fulfill.
