Saira | Certified Reiki Master & Teacher

Hello! I’m Saira. I’m a Certified Usui Reiki Master Practitioner and Teacher (Level 3A & 3B), Women’s Circle Facilitator, Sacred Cacao Ceremonalist and a Mom of two with a passion for helping people become their best energetic selves.

I was born & raised in El Salvador until I moved to my current home in Brisbane, Australia. I’m a descendent of the pipil/mayan civilisation.

I serve women, men and children of all ages by creating a loving & safe space to heal and balance their energy. Through an ancient healing technique named reiki, I facilitate powerful healing sessions that empower and awaken my clients to their own truths and healing abilities.


It was 10 years ago that I started my Reiki journey when I was first attuned (face to face) to level 1, 2 and Master level. I don’t want to sound cliche BUT Reiki HAS changed my life.

I was an emotional wreck for some time as I was dealing with the rollercoaster of an ugly divorce (just straight up ex baggage) and childhood trauma, no amount of counselling or pyschology could help me – I knew I needed something else.

I discovered Reiki through a colleague (in my corporate job) who was a Reiki Master. To be honest – I was very scared about it and almost cancelled my first session. Thank god I faced my fear of the unknown that day because it changed everything. Those who know me personally have seen the personal changes and growth in my life, for this reason I’ve decided to share the benefits of reiki to those who are open to receive it.

I have learnt on the journey that healing isn’t an instant process, there are so many levels and layers to our healing, the healing process is often described as peeling an onion. We start with peeling the papery layer and often people think they are done but thats not even the true onion. A reiki healing session works on all these levels, it is a spiritual experience and can be an emotional one because it helps to unblock and remove whatever is not serving you for your highest good.

Reiki is not a religion or cult, reiki is a little bit like a relaxing meditation, every one experiences reiki differently, some feel, see or hear wonderful things and others feel nothing but relaxation, either way it’s all positive.

For anyone who’s reading this and is still feeling a bit unsure I would ask you this – what is the worst that could happen? step outside your comfort zone and test it out!


Every Reiki Master has a lineage which traces their teachers back to Usui the founder of Reiki. This is referred to as their Reiki lineage and not all Reiki teachers note their lineage publicly. It’s important to note that any well trained and experienced Reiki Master will provide their Reiki lineage to all of their students, from level 1 right through to Master-Teacher students.

Below is my reiki lineage for those who are interested:

  • Dr. Mikao Usui
  • Chujiro Hayashi
  • Hawayo Takata
  • Phyllis Lei Furumoto
  • Claudia Hoffman
  • Mary Shaw
  • Christine Henderson
  • Bruce Way
  • Francesca Graham
  • Charmaine Eykenboom
