Classes and sessions take place at Learn Reiki Philadelphia 251 N. 2nd. Street in the Olde City section of Philadelphia. It’s easy to get to via I95, as well as public transportation. Affordable garage parking is available at Parkominium, which is a few doors down from us. I also conduct semi-private classes for wellness centers large and small.
Planning an overnight stay in Philly is a breeze! There are plenty of hotels, motels, and, of course, Air BnB.
