Willow Mainprize was born in Vancouver, British Columbia and spent most of her childhood on her family’s farms in the Shuswap and Fraser Valley. She is a third generation alternative therapy practitioner. Willow’s grandmother, incredibly progressive for the times, brought acupressure and reflexology to her work as a nurse in hospitals for adults and children with physical and mental disabilities. Her mother, a Therapeutic Touch Practitioner, introduced her to Energy Therapy and its powerful healing benefits at a very young age.
When Willow found herself struggling with the paralyzing grief of both her father and mother passing from cancer by the time she was 28, she knew a deeper healing was necessary than conventional western medicine had offered. Experiencing the profound spiritual, emotional, and physical healing benefits of Reiki, she inspired to dedicate her life to the practice and share it with those in her community also seeking peace, whole mind/body/spirit wellness, and a deeper connection to Divine Source.
Willow is always evolving her Reiki practice, skills and knowledge, dedicated to empowering her students and clients to heal on all levels of mind, body and spirit. Willow is a Registered Usui/Holy Fire® III Karuna® Reiki Master Teacher and Practitioner and is an affiliate member of the International Centre of Reiki Training adhering to strict standards of the ICRT Reiki Practice and Reiki Code of Ethics.
What to Expect
Every Reiki treatment will begin with a check in to discuss the areas you wish to bring healing and set intentions for the session. The treatment itself is one hour. Once the session is complete, Willow will offer any insights she received to support you along your healing journey. Typically appointments run about 90 minutes.
Willow is amazing. I was so nervous for my first visit. I went with an open mind and was greeted by this warm welcoming soul. Willow helps you relax and she does a follow up just to see how you are doing. She doesn’t force you to come back on a regular basis. It’s all when you need some support or guidance. She’s amazing and so lucky to have met her and experience a new way to find myself and heal. – Geeven Aujula, Surrey.
I had never experienced Reiki, nor known much about it until I had my first treatment with Willow. I can now say that I am really quite in awe of its power. Willow is incredibly gifted, even though she will stick to her claim that all she does is “channel”. She is a quiet healer, and her Reiki treatment was one of the most spiritually, emotionally, and physically healing experiences I’ve ever had. I will definitely see her for more treatments in the future, and recommend her to everyone I care about in my life. Thank you Willow, for introducing me to the Reiki experience in such a kind and understanding way. You have helped me more than I will probably ever be able to tell. – Jen Dickson, North Vancouver.
Willow is absolutely amazing! I have seen her twice now and I have never felt more spiritually free then ever before. She truly works magic with her energy healing and focuses on all parts of the body in order to heal through any emotional pain and blockages. I have been so at ease since her sessions and I will always follow to see her in the future. She is a great Reiki teacher to have for guidance whenever needed she is there to help and answer any questions and guide you in the right direction. I highly recommend seeing her and her beautiful contagious energy. – Monika Krzyz, Langley.
Willow is a fantastic reiki practitioner. She is inviting, knowledgeable and very skilled. I thoroughly enjoyed my relaxing session and plan to go back. The inner peace I felt when I left was awesome. Thanks so much, Willow! – Jack Gillett
It’s Sunday, and as I sit here I’m SO very thankful for having found Willow — she’s literally one of the most gifted practitioners I’ve had the pleasure of working with! My little guy is going through cancer treatments, and her very loving and intuitive nature has allowed him to welcome her and the healing she’s been providing — the change in him is noticeable immediately, and I know it’s been the key to him going through as positive a recovery as possible. I highly recommend anyone that is even thinking of energy therapy to work with Willow — you will be thanking your lucky stars every day… – Shannon Charney, White Rock.
