Rose Mainprize began her journey with Reiki healing six years ago after overcoming some serious health issues, which led her to develop a deeper connection with self and spirit. This translated into a deep understanding of the mind-body connection. She is guided by her inner wisdom and holds a gentle and understanding space for others. Over the past five years, she has gained experience with animals, people and children.
She was raised in the beautiful rural surroundings of the Shuswap in British Columbia, with her family and many animals on their mountain, which facilitated a lifelong commitment to nurturing nature and beings.
Rose is an Usui Reiki Master Teacher and enjoys working with crystals to assist in promoting deeper healing and relaxation. Some of her other passions include writing music, playing her guitar, and her cat Abigail. Rose is a Registered Teacher through the Canadian Reiki Association.
I went to see Rose after enduring a very stressful time in my life. Despite this time coming to an end, the anxiety that had built up during this period would not subsist. My chest felt tight and I could not let go of the the emotional pain that I had been holding over the past several months . During my session, I immediately felt comforted by the healing energy work Rose practiced and I felt a calmness surface that had been non-existent for months. After the session Rose took the time to discuss what she had done and was able not only to clarify the obvious causes of my anxiety, but showed me some of the deeper reasons I was holding onto this pain. Rose is a kind, thoughtful and magical healer.

I felt comfortable in Rose’s space right away, and she holds her space in such a way that in each session I can open up to her about my experiences and intentions for healing. I feel valid, accepted, and attended to. When I lay on the table and get into a healing space, I am met with Rose’s loving and healing energies. Each session that I have had has its own stand-alone meaning and depth. I feel so relaxed as Rose taps into my energies and makes adjustments as needed. I trust her as an important part of my healing journey.
My sessions last as long as they need to, and she gently does her work in a very intentional and compassionate way. I can tell that she wants her clients to be well, fulfilled, and free. She has certainly helped me in this regard. When the reiki portion of the visit is over, Rose guides me through anything that she feels I should know. This is where much insight is brought to light. It is equal to the session itself in terms of helpfulness and connecting to my higher self and my needs. I feel like I’m getting the benefit of a skilled practitioner and a wise life advisor. Rose is an old soul and taps into her creative genius in the most wonderful of ways.

My reiki experience with Rose was absolutely amazing! She is definitely powerful and gifted and I had a true connection with her. I would definitely recommend Rose to anyone and everyone. She is definitely someone that I will continue to see.

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 having both her father and mother pass from cancer by the time she was 28, she knew a deeper healing was necessary than the pharmaceuticals and talk therapy Western Medicine 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 brings knowledge and healing techniques from four schools of practice in energy healing therapy; Usui Ryoho Reiki, Karuna Holy Fire II™ Reiki, Sechiem Reiki, and Heart Resonance™. Willow also brings an intimate knowledge of the powerful metaphysical healing properties of crystals. She incorporates crystal grid work specifically tailored to each client’s needs to further support and amplify the healing benefits of an energy therapy 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.”
