Jacqueline Milton - Reiki Master Practitioner, Intuitive-Medium & Watercolor Artist
"I have had my psychic medium gifts since childhood; it comes from both sides of my family. I see, hear and feel vibrations, auras, and tune into people’s voices. I give a recording of the reading session because once I don't remember the session after it's completed. Most people in a session want to know about family, love, career, relationships, past loved ones. Please bring some questions you would like answers to with you to your session.
Thank you, Namaste. "

Samantha Ho, Certified Yoga Instructor, Level 2 Reiki Practitioner
Samantha Ho is a Level 2 certified Reiki Practitioner who has been practicing Reiki since 2016. She has been trained in the Western Usui Shiki Ryoho lineage, and also the Japanese Usui Reiki Ryoho and the Reiki Jin-Kei-Do lineage.
Prior to her relocation from Boston to Illinois, Samantha was accepted to be a participant of the BWH Reiki Volunteer program at Brigham & Women Hospital in Boston which specialises in making Reiki accessible to patients and their families.
Samantha’s own Reiki journey started back in 2013, as a recipient of Reiki herself to help support her own personal healing process, and alleviate emotional blocks, fatigue and stress. She is also a big advocate for practicing self reiki as a way to maintain an ongoing sense of wellbeing and balance in her own busy and active lifestyle as a HR professional during the day, and a part-time 200 hour CYT certified Yoga Teacher at Essencia Yoga in Wheaton.
Samantha is excited to be able to continue sharing the gift of Reiki as a healing and deep relaxation modality with her clients. As part of her Reiki practice, she enjoys incorporating elements of her own practice as a yoga teacher into her Reiki sessions. Meditation and breath work are often infused into her energy healing sessions to facilitate a deeper sense of relaxation, and spiritual wellbeing for her clients so that they feel refreshed, rejuvenated and nourished by the end of the session.
Julie Lomax, CYT - 900
Julie found yoga in 2005 after moving back to the Chicago area. Knee and back pain forced her to stop running. Yoga not only provided a low impact workout, but actually alleviated the pain that had plagued her for many years. While initially a physical exercise, yoga became so much more. Yoga became an oasis where Julie could relax, rejuvenate, and refuel – physically, mentally, and spiritually. Besides alleviating the aches and pains, yoga has been instrumental in maintaining hormonal balance and dealing with depression. Julie has been on a journey to wholeness and wellness for over 20 years. Yoga teacher training was one step on the path – something as amazing as yoga needs to be shared. Julie was interested in learning more about yoga, and the many benefits, so she recently completed a 900-hour training to become a Yoga Therapist through Yoga Among Friends/Surya Chandra Healing Yoga. Julie lives in Naperville with her husband and daughter – who is now in college. She can often be found walking or biking (sometimes even snowshoeing) around town or at the Morton Arboretum.
