for Marianne Schneider & Reiki Tahoe
Reiki Testimonial from Jen – Alabama – I had the pleasure of meeting Marianne for an in-person Reiki session while on travel to Lake Tahoe last summer. I’d heard of distance Reiki but had always been skeptical to try it. In my first moments with Marianne it was clear to me she’s the “real deal” and I experienced profound results from my very first session.
After returning home I decided to give distance Reiki a try. For the first session we scheduled I set the time aside to lie down still, clear my mind and breathe as she worked. After the session she sent me a summary which was spot on in so many ways I could hardly believe it. Every distance session I’ve had with Marianne has resulted in significant progress for me personally, whether through revelations from the session or direction she has given me to follow as a result of what she picked up.
I don’t really understand how or why it works but in each session she seems to tune right into where I am and what I’m working through in my life at that time. I’ve long been a hard core, left brain, pragmatist but I’ve come to accept that just because I can’t understand or define something does not make it any less real. Marianne comes with my highest recommendation.
Testimonial from Amy – Southern California – Oh how I love the energy work that I get to do with Marianne! My first Reiki session with Marianne was close to 4 years ago. I was so excited for my visit and my session was nothing short of life changing. I had recently gone through a bad breakup and was dealing with some pretty big health issues. I wasn’t in a very good place to say the least. When my session was over I felt an enormous weight was lifted off of my shoulders. I could breathe again and the calming energy I had felt incredible. I had a cleansing of my mind, body and soul. After that experience I was hooked. Since then I try to visit Marianne every time I make to the Tahoe area, which isn’t nearly enough. 🙂 While I was up in Tahoe City last summer I had a session with Marianne and was thrilled to learn that she does remote sessions. I was interested in having energy work done more often than once or twice a year but really trusted Marianne and didn’t want to have to search for a new healer. She let me know how the process works and I was excited to have my first session.
Liz – Kings Beach, CA – I tried my first Raindrop Reiki session with Marianne 2 years ago during a three week cleanse through Naturamed. I was skeptical about the benefits of Reiki before I tried the session, but I was open minded to trying it. As I lay on my stomach the essential oils penetrated into my feet and my back and spine. Marianne said I was releasing emotion because I felt very cold areas on my back. Warm areas mean you are releasing physically. I remember Marianne “pulling” with her hand and as she did so she commented to my husband Mike, who was sitting in the infrared sauna, saying, “yuuuuch… that is sitcky icky.” About a week after this Raindrop Reiki session I realized something had changed in me. The previous year or so I was feeling an anxiety, a paranoia that was a dark feeling that washed over me occasionally when I was tired or overwhelmed. It occurred a few times a week, and I felt it in my stomach like knots or butterflies. I don’t know if this feeling originated from emotional trauma or physical trauma in my life. But I had a distinct awareness that this sensation of darkness was gone. Somehow Marianne cleared it from my body and I was aware that I literally felt lighter.
Most recently I had a Raindrop Reiki session on a Saturday where I received energy from 5 people. The following Wednesday night I realized that I hadn’t cried at night since the Reiki session. I was crying nearly every night for about four months since I went through a really rough patch in my life. I had experienced a lot of loss and death in the previous four months, the saddest of which was my dog passing away. I deeply missed her companionship. The sadness came in waves and the waves lasted for minutes or hours at a time. I realized on Wednesday night that I was happy and I hadn’t cried that day. Wait! I hadn’t cried the previous four days. I cannot explain how, but Marianne helped pushed out the sadness that I was ready to let go of. I felt emotionally lighter, I felt less stressed and I felt in control of my life again.
Ingrid – Kings Beach, CA – I would love to share my experience with the healing hands of Marianne. I didn’t know what reiki was, but I did know I wanted to try it. It was meant for me to do it with Marianne because it was spontaneous. I stepped into the office and somebody had canceled, so it was my time. From the first time it was amazing, I could feel the energy. I was really calm, balanced and laughing, so I knew something was working. Since then I have seen Marianne lots of times, either my mind body or mind were out of balance and I knew I could find new balance under her hands. I could feel the energy releasing my heart aches, back aches and lots of emotional baggage. It is like a peeling an onion, so it is a process but it works. What is amazing for me is I don’t even tell her what is bothering me or were I am stuck, but Marianne is always on the spot. Afterwards she tells me what is happening with my body and tells me where I was stuck and it is always true.
I also have a 6 years old boy Tomasko who is really sensitive, has lots of allergies and very stuffed up nose. I asked Marianne to work on him too. It was amazing to see him coming from session glowing and being more centered, also easing his allergies. Marianne gives him tools to use to help him with his sensitivity which he is using every day. He loves to come back and get his reiki done because he can feel the difference too. He recommends reiki to people and he is much more grounded, even learned to release some of his fears.
Thank you for sharing your healing hands with us and if anybody is wondering, reiki does work. Marianne is kind and has a lot of knowledge, patience with kids and us big kids. It is my and Tomasko’s privilege to meet her and have our onions peeled by her hands. Thank you I believe that this is changing our lives in the right direction.
Kim B. – Truckee – I have had the privilege to be part of Marianne’s community reiki sessions in King’s Beach. Not only do I learn skills and improve my own reiki abilities during these sessions, they leave everyone with a deep sense of peace, happiness and mental clarity. I also feel charged with energy at the same time. At these sessions, I have witnessed people gain relief from nagging pain, others experience emotional releases and some people gain clarity about challenges in their lives. People are always smiling and state that they feel better after their reiki session.
Marianne has also been my practitioner for private sessions. She has been a powerful force in helping me overcome a major emotional crisis, using reiki and conscious healing techniques to get through the grief of losing my father to cancer, and to deal with ongoing trauma and the stress of the legal ramifications that have resulted from this. Through her work, I have felt better physically, emotionally, spiritually and mentally.
During his fight with cancer, my father found great relief in Reiki. It soothed his physical pain, it made him feel supported and gave him a sense of power over his illness, rather than always feeling like a victim. I am convinced that reiki was a prime force in taking him into remission twice, before the disease finally took over. This gave us 2 more years with him, a very precious gift.

Here is an article I wrote on Kids, Energy and Health. It explains about being a sensitive child.
