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 wellness, and a deeper connection to source and spirit.
In her sessions with clients, Willow combines a deep appreciation and connection to the spiritual foundations of Reiki, balanced with an interest in the metaphysical aspects of energy work and how it relates to the quantum science behind the human body and its subtle energy systems. Willow also brings an intimate knowledge of the powerful metaphysical healing properties of crystals. She often incorporates crystal grid work specifically tailored to each client’s needs to further support and amplify the healing benefits of each session.
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.

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.

Willow is an absolute kind and generous soul. I was recently certified as an Animal Reiki Practitioner by Willow at Rosewillow Reiki and am so grateful for her knowledge and passion for Reiki. I loved my experience and feel that the support and encouragement given to pursue Reiki for Animals is authentic as they come. I enjoyed the workshop immensely and felt confident right out of the gate. The homework assignment given was practical and of vital importance. I highly recommend Rosewillow Reiki to those wanting a Reiki experience as well as those wishing to further their Reiki practice by going up a level and becoming an Animal Reiki Practitioner. The animals you will come in contact with will appreciate it and your personal journey will continue to grow! Thank you Willow for coming from a place of abundance and love.

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…
