“John and Julia’s reiki classes are literally a transformative experience. I never knew that reiki was a simple but very profound gift that we all share within. It’s the causes of our own blockages that get in our way from our deep love of self and all the abundance we are born with. John and Julia’s teaching approach helps you use this energy your way intuitively that becomes part of your life. I have a friend who also was taught reiki over a year ago and never uses it. I asked him why? He said he didn’t get much out of the classes and it was confusing. The funny thing; I took these classes not too long ago and since I took teachers as well. I now am teaching my friend and he is blown away how much he missed taking reiki from this other teacher. John and Julia are truly heartfelt, compassionate, truthful, very caring and considerate how they teach the courses and how reiki pertains to your lifestyle and how you will benefit using it. You both are always in my heart and prayers. So grateful I texted you John and had the opportunity to be taught by you both.”

“John and Julia together are simply astonishing with their energy and love for what they offer each session. I had held onto a miscarriage I had over twenty seven years ago. During that time I went into a deep depression and even pushed away my husband at the time. Throughout that time I had severe pains on and off and much discomfort in that area. I had several MRI’s, tests done and not one clue by doctors what the cause was. I never mentioned this to John or Julia and during the session those energy blockages were released. My baby daughter came to me during the session and she told me to let go and she was doing good and I would see her in the next life. My ex husband also came to me and we spoke forgiving one another releasing that hardship as well. Through the tears to joy to energy I haven’t felt in twenty seven years all came to me in a rush. It’s like I became thirty years younger. To top it off I wanted my soulmate to enter my life and two weeks later he showed. We are now happily dating. John had mentioned that once you connect to your source by letting those blockages go; your life instantly changes. In one hour - I got my life back. In one hour. There’re true healers on this planet; John and Julia are definitely two of them. One last thing; I have a very stressful job as a psychiatrist helping survivors from sexual abuse. That job normally takes a huge toll on me. Not even that happens anymore. It’s like I’m the light, my true spirit that allows my soul to enjoy the beauty that is within me and around me all the time.”

"My name is Atticus McFadden - Keesling and I work a very demanding job and often feel tired, stiff, and foggy by the end of the day. In the last few months I have taken classes from Julia Taylor. Julia creates a non - judgmental space for me where I am able to improve my flexibility/ range of motion while getting a fun work out. Every class I feel like I am learning new dynamics of the body, and gaining more balance that I can use in my everyday life. I often end up feeling less tired and more clear headed after taking a private lesson with Julia. I also always end up leaving in a better mood than I arrived with. 10/10 recommend a class or a few with her!"
~ Atticus M
"Julia has a way of centering me. Normally, my mind wanders too much for savasana, but by the end of her practice, I'll have journeyed from stressed, to energetic, to restful, and then finally content"
~ Nate M
"I really appreciate Julia's enthusiasm and passion as a yoga instructor. Her sessions always feel very thoughtful and I love how she weaves in guided meditation in her practice. She has expert knowledge of body movement and various techniques so that no matter your level of ability, she is able to make you feel comfortable to help you deepen and further your yoga journey. Julia comes highly recommended!!"

“That is so awesome about your music John. I’m sure you’ve heard this by now, but the fact that you are able to travel around and perform in such a unique way in our world is just mind blowing. You have found your gift and you continue to find ways to share it in a time that provides many challenges. And yet you continue to find ways through those challenges to bring light to those that need it. As someone who looks to find their own gift to share with others, you are a great example of how to find your path and follow it. 🦋
Thank you for sharing the lessons for this life - I completely agree! Each day holds a lesson and the higher energy I can access, the more I can see them everywhere. It’s super cool!!
Thank you for your music John, thank you for following your path to help all that listen to your gifts!”
~ Summer Franck
“After three months of quarantine, stress, anxiety, sadness, fear and sleepless nights; I wanted to say good morning John! I slept solid all night. ( very rare) and did have a dream about the most beautiful placid water I’ve ever seen. The deep shade of blue was amazing! And made me feel so happy. Thank you for your amazing work!”
~ Mary Beth
“John, what a total blessing I came across your website. I’m truly before now; wasn’t a big believer in holistic approaches, but all that I read, thought I would give it a try. I went to your overnight concert back in January and wow! All I can say is unbelievable. You had mentioned before we all fell asleep that this will last 30-90 days of releasing, balancing and feeling way more energetic and at peace. First, I slept better than I have ever before. I had very visual and beautiful dreams (I never dream) and the nine hours felt like two. When I woke I was refreshed and feeling so good, that I actually went home and cleaned, changed things around in my home and finished things I put off (some for years). The kicker is this; it’s now March; 60 days later and I’m still peacefully sleeping and feeling amazing. Thank you so very much. I love coming to see you when you’re in town. Your energy, knowledge and beautiful soul is dynamic.”
~ Pam G.
“What a pleasure meeting you and for all the heartfelt love you shared. I have been going through a lot and have a way to go. But when I showed up to your concert; it was a very snowy night and luckily my daughter and I got there before you left. We were the only ones to brave the weather and such a blessing we did. You spoke with us both for an hour then performed a two hour concert that was so divine and gave us the peace with both haven’t had in years. Even more amazing, you speaking to us both for over an hour after simply from the beautiful place of your heart. You truly do care and shine your light without hesitation. I have now been to several concerts and each one has brought me inner peace and made it so much easier to move through my outside world that I’m thankfully leaving behind. Thank you so much John. You’re a truly beautiful man; hoping you know this always.”
~ Anne D.
I just finished taking your Reiki 1 and 2 classes. Wow, from a skeptic to knower! I’m excited to later take the Masters class; wanted to share this with you.
I have to say, I'm already having some pretty interesting observations....over the last few days I have noticed a tingling in my hands when I am sending Reiki, and it has been getting stronger the more I do it. I thought that was a pretty good confirmation for me that something was actually happening!
My energy level has also been higher than normal - I haven't had any caffeine for a week and haven't felt the need to have it at all. I actually have motivated myself to get up a little earlier in the mornings to try doing 30 min of Reiki before I get up and start my day and I have found the last couple days at work to be "easier" than normal...not that there weren't challenges to work through, but the day overall has seemed smoother and it has been easier to find solutions to the problems that pop up. Definitely looking forward to seeing what other positive impacts this will have going forward! Thank you so much for sharing your gifts, I loved the classes so much.”
~ Kylie Joki
“John I want to express with my dearest appreciation what your gifts did for me. When you live with chronic pain for over ten years; just wishing something would help with the pain. I tried everything; I go to your concert and after the pain was gone. I wasn’t going to write this until some time later. It’s been a year later and I’m still pain free. I told my doctor and he mentioned that sound can create miracles where medicine is having trouble competing. Thank you for such a beautiful concert that did so much more than I could of hoped for. Keep doing what you love and helping those that will benefit greatly from your talents and gifts!”
~ Martha Brooks
“John is a truly kind and patient teacher with a genuine desire to support his students in their Reiki journey, far beyond the class time. I can honestly say John has been a friend and mentor, checking in with me periodically, since taking his trainings. I think what makes John unique from other Reiki teachers is his willingness to get to the heart of Reiki right away, as opposed to getting too caught up in the mountains of technical details that often overwhelm new students. John has a deep understanding of energy and over the course of my trainings I experienced incredible transformation and what I will call "heart healing". During one of our classes I was amazed when suddenly 5 or 6 birds came to the window behind me and perched on the rocking chair on my porch just outside, looking in at us. In all my years living in my home, I had never seen that happen before with even a single bird, much less 5 or 6. It was a beautiful manifestation of the positive energy we were generating in the class. I was in awe but John just smiled and didn't seem the least bit surprised when he told me to turn around and look at the beautiful creatures fluttering and then perching peacefully behind me. The "miracles" of Reiki are continuous and flowing when we allow them. Life changing would be an understatement!
Thank you for your gentle and generous spirit, John!”
~ Jen Flamont
“After meeting John at one of his concerts, I decided to take Reiki classes 1, 2 and Masters with him. I'm so glad I made that decision because it was completely life changing. John is one of the most unique souls I've ever come across. His excitement to share his gifts pours out of him and is completely refreshing. His teaching style fit perfectly with what I needed to bring my gifts to the next level. Not only is he a wonderful teacher but he also makes it known that you are his friend for life. John has an incredible heart and I truly feel blessed to have studied with him.”
~ Nina Palma
"I have been to your concerts for some time now. You usually advertise that you teach reiki, Primordial meditation, life coaching and one on one sessions. I have always been a skeptic with most things. If it works good, if not; I move on. Your concerts always do. I feel more at peace, happier, in the flow of my heart space and even more alert and energetic.
I decided to call you and we made an appointment for you to come to my house for a one on one session. First, thank you so much. What an incredible experience. I snored the entire time (was so relaxed and at peace) that time seemed to stop. I actually felt when you woke me up, that 15 minutes went by. An hour and a half later; I was so rested, empowered, pain free, clarity I have never experienced in my mind and just astonished that now two weeks later, I’m still feeling amazing. I asked you how many times should I use this service. What you spoke to me shows your true character. You told me to listen to my heart always and make that decision from there. There aren’t many people I come across that are as gifted, loving, truly caring and simply a good person.
Where I’m from, we give a gift back. That is gratitude and a blessing. You’re always in my prayers."
~ Sara Yoshiko
"I’m still trying to truly grasp the magnitude of how you teach reiki. I can only express that you and I were on a journey that unlocked many hidden gems within me; gems I never knew were there. I love that when I finished my last class - I seemingly already knew how to use my gifts and truly blown away how special this energy is. To know that you’re here for me always - with any questions or even to simply exchange services is a blessing. I have friends that took reiki from others and first of all, they don’t use this divine energy, secondly they hadn’t a clue how to use it (felt lost afterwords) and were confused and third they felt robbed that my attunements lasted over an hour and a half each class. I’m so glad that I found you. I have discovered that I’m definitely an empath, psychic and found my dharma; I’m going to finish school and become a nurse and use this beautiful, loving energy with my patients. Thank you so incredibly much for your gifts. You’re truly an inspiration and I’m beyond grateful.
I’ll be sure to tell everyone to you come highly recommenced.
Many happy blessings,"
~ Lisa Wilcox
"After my session, my sinuses unblocked and I felt SO much better all around! The next day I felt "back to normal", no cold, no sinus thing, no nothing! The sound and the reiki really moved things around so my body could take the fast track into healing itself! And to think I was going to cancel because I didn't feel good!
Your reiki is amazing. I could feel the energy and the Light, moving through me, and it was wonderful!
Blessings, Love & Light to you John!"
~ Kavita Caroline Booth
“I really didn't even know what Reiki was when I wrote John inquiring about class information. He responded to my email quickly and with such genuine enthusiasm that I felt like somehow, whomever this person was, he was meant to be my teacher. I signed up for the first class immediately.
Over the three Reiki classes I took, I came to see John as wise and kind, passionate and enthusiastic. His excitement about the art of Reiki is contagious and gave me the desire to let go of fears and reason and allow this powerful tool to move through me. He didn't shy away from showing me the things I needed to let go of but never once told me how or what to do. This is the perfect teacher for me. The wonderful part of his gift is to be with each individual in the way that they need so that he can relate the information in a way that they can absorb it.
My favorite part of his teaching was the attunements; when he played music with his crystal bowls. He has such a gift and the music he chooses to play along with is always spot on. I felt knowledge was being passed to me and absorbed through the vibrations of the sounds.
John is a gifted healer, a talented musician and and enthusiastic teacher. He has shown me my own strengths by believing in me when I didn't know how to believe in myself and that is why I wholeheartedly recommend him and his work.”
~ Nina McDermott - Reiki 1, 2, Masters
“You are such a God/Goddess send, May your Ancestors and Angels bless you always in this enlighten work.
It is time and so needed. I really appreciate your taking the time with me truly. You have no ideal of the depth of meaning my coming out to the sound Concert held. It was a very low point in my life and truly I am speechless and how deeply trans-formative and swiftly with ease the inner changes I experience were; thank you, thank you, thank you.”
~ Gerdella Moody
“John, which I love; does house calls and comes out to see you. Not many I know do this anymore. The greatest part was there is no extra charge; I live over an hour from him. My daughter and I live alone and raising a child with learning disabilities can wear you out. Her disability is emotional and we have had many difficulties trying to mend our relationship. John used his life coaching program and his sound therapy and reiki. He gave us a discount and within a couple of sessions I could visibly see and experience a huge shift with my daughter and with me. It was almost like a veil being lifted and we both could see each other - heart to heart; for the first time since she was a child. Her school sees the difference and her grades have vastly approved. Johns an avid believer in what he does and you can tell the love he puts into every session. You’re a gifted man; thank you so much for sharing your heart and gifts; we are forever thankful.”
~ Amber Dedrerman
“Thank you John for helping out my friend with your distance reiki. My friend was diagnosed with polyps in his colon. He was in a great deal of pain and with you sending him that energy; his pain subsided and the polyps shrunk. The doctors were surprised when they took another look and they were nearly gone. The beautiful part of this story is John still worked on him after the session, during his treatment to remove what was still left. Thank you, thank you, thank you!"
~ Hannah A.
“Last nights concert was pure heaven on earth. I have never experienced a sound bath or even a meditation that way before. It was like heavenly sounds and music were comforting me the entire time! Simply loved it!”
~ Jessica Stallworth
“Wow, a true divine pleasure, to truly and deeply be so relaxed that all your worries, heartaches, stress and pain go away in two hours. I have never experienced such bliss and peace in my life; you truly know your craft and I’m grateful you share it John!”
~ Betty Cook
“Well! Where do I start... I have been sleeping so deeply, it's amazing. The night of the sound bath, I had a dream that I was basically reborn. I remember being little and discovering how to talk, eat, and make observations and opinions. At one point, my younger sister was born and I had a strong sense to tell her I love her when she was just a little bundle in blankets. We've always had an iffy relationship so this was pretty remarkable. I called her yesterday and we had a really great talk. How amazing is that??”
~ Maria, Ann Arbor
"I took my nearly 16-year-old Norwich Terrier to John for a reiki session a few months ago. She has a spinal tumor that affects the way she walks and has caused lameness in her left rear leg. She hadn’t been diagnosed before her first reiki session, but she did show some improvement in her energy and range of motion. She had never experienced energy healing before and I wasn’t sure what to expect, but since my dog seems to like everyone and is generally calm, she went right over to John and lay down next to him while he worked on her energy field.
The second time I took her to John was after Gypsy’s spinal tumor diagnosis, and I knew reiki would help her feel better as the tumor was inoperable and there was little her vet could do for her other than give her medication. She wasn’t in pain, as far as we could tell, but she seemed depressed and had been sleeping most of the day and only eating about half her food. A 6-hour nap was becoming her “norm.” We were worried about her. At her second reiki session, John decided to try using the crystal bowls. Right away, Gypsy went over to John, laid down and fell into a deep sleep as he started playing the bowls.
She seemed to enjoy her second session and I am thrilled to report her energy has increased tremendously! The past few weeks, Gypsy has been awake most of the day—which we haven’t experienced in YEARS!! And she’s eating ALL her food and asking for more before bedtime. Plus, she is also sleeping better at night. Since being diagnosed with Cushing’s disease last August, she has been getting up almost every night at least once to go out. Now she sleeps through the night EVERY night! I am so happy for my sweet Gypsy! She doesn’t seem depressed any more and is getting more attention from me and my kids since she is awake most of the day now. She still has trouble walking, but we’ve been taking her out in her stroller more and she’s happy to be able to still go for walks with us.
Thank you so much, John for your beautiful healing gift and for using the crystal bowls when you saw Gypsy for her reiki session. It’s like the clock got turned back a few years on Gypsy’s energy level. Namaste!"
~ Nancy Bathe
"I was not sure what Reiki exactly was, I called John who was so warm and helpful with me. Even though I was over two hours away; he told me he would definitely come out to help. I was diagnosed with stage four breast cancer which spread to my liver. Last week that changed to - it spread all over; bones, bowels, skull, spine and brain. It even brought severe pain to my previously fractured hip, ribs and pelvic region. I have been in bed, literally for months. The new news set me in motion, prayed to find someone with a true HEART. My friend Gayle in California spoke to me about Reiki; which she had used and had profound results. Urgently I looked up Reiki on the web and found John; I just knew I needed it ASAP! What I had learned is John also uses sound therapy with music and rare crystal bowls plus reiki. When I first heard the bowls and music, I truly for the first time, in such a long time; was in complete peace. I feel asleep with the heavenly sounds and after the reiki treatment, I felt more energy than I had, when I was twenty years younger and healthy.
I will thank God forever for John helping me:
Today was the fifth day of treatments. John with severe cases such as mine has a program that clears the energy of the mind, heart and complete body which simply helps the body heal more quickly and profoundly. It also helps the medicine and treatments I'm currently using with my doctors.
Each day I have had new energy, I feel fantastic, I have focus and I am at deep peace. This is profound stuff - combined with a truly blessed and gifted healer, the heavenly therapeutic bowls, the healing music. One word? = WOW!
You know you are in excellent hands with John."
~ Nadia "Idgy" Loeschke
"My dear friend John Steinbauer I can't forget for your help to us when my children were sick. You sent Reiki energy healing to Niken and Pandu; Pandu was in the hospital for eleven days and the doctors and nurses were at a loss for his digestive isssues and his body swelling. When you offered Reiki I did not understand how you living in USA could help my children here in Indonesia. You comforted me reassuring my mind that Reiki energy can go anywhere and help with the medicine and staff there at the hospital. You even performed your sessions at 3:30 am your time to compliment our prayer time. I'm so impressed and amazed how, with that distance, your Reiki energy helped us. After your sessions, three you performed for my son, was completely healed as well as my daughter who had a severe ear infection. Your Reiki energy healed on all levels plus helped with the recovery process. John has been there for us every time and with his open heart truly is a blessing in our lives. Thank you so very much John, your Reiki energy means so much to us. Sending you much love and hugs. We love you. God bless you always."
~ Sri Berkah Riniwati Melik, Samarinda, Indonesia
"John is a very dynamic educator. He successfully gets a feel for his students and what their needs are within the class and allows the class to flow organically. More like a dialogue than a monologue. He provides the perfect mixture of conceptual teaching and hands-on exercises which allows the material to really sink in and provide students with feedback and coaching where necessary. He truly is a rarity. He perpetually makes time to provide insight, advice, and clarification to his students even after the class has long finished. Highly recommend!"
~ Chi Brodie ( Reiki 1, 2, Masters)
"John's openness and approach to teaching and to our class was quite unbelievable. We had many systems of belief in our class; me being a Christian; plus we had a Muslim and a Buddhist. Not to forget a lady who spoke of her astral nature. What i truly thought would be a long weekend of disconnect an discontent was a miracle in the making. Each level of Reiki, being attuned by John and how John approached our life styles in his teachings' we grew closer and our walls faded. To be perfectly honest that's the wonderful aspect of Reiki, you come to open your heart to find that blessing in yourself and love and that love and blessing in others you never knew existed before. I want to personally thank John for helping me see that love I had within; you're a true gifted teacher and i will never forget what i received from your classes. I'm now honored to be helping others with the blessed energy of Reiki! God bless you and your family."
~ Peter Menweli ( Reiki 1, 2, Masters and Teachers)
"Thank you John Steinbauer for the unique, informative and powerful Reiki 1 and 2 and Masters Classes. Your teachings truly come from an open heart and mind, being so kind, enthusiastic, humorous, creative and full of possibilities, the experience was awesome! The classes take you to a whole new level and his support during and after the classes is off the charts. John delivers more than you could ever expect and i encourage anyone interested to check out John's Energy in Motion Reiki Certification courses, i am so happy i did, he is a joy!"
~ Maryann (Reiki 1,2, Masters)
“This may sound over the top. But John and Julia helped me find my dog who was taken to be breed in Tennessee. The breeder was building a fence and my dog got out and was missing for 24 hours. John and Julia went into action doing distance reiki and found my dog near a cave and rock wall. My husband and I went down to Tennessee and still couldn’t find her. They both said she was now with another dog and safe. Eventually we went back home and they both said they see her meeting a man and she will be back with us. Three days later a man found her on a hike and she is now home. Some would call this being psychic. John and Julia just expressed doing distance reiki connected her to be guided to this man and back to us. One thing I haven’t mentioned. I also took reiki classes from John as did my husband. Not to keep this too long; those classes saved our marriage. Too personal to share. Seriously you have to take reiki classes from John and Julia; your life will finally be yours! I’m not kidding. Love you both!”
~ Dan and Jennifer J
“I have taken reiki classes from John for years, gone to his sound healing events and even done some sessions. Ever since he has been working with Julia I have enjoyed even more the way they both harmonize with the bowls and music. It’s like angels performing together. The last concert when I was home I fell and hurt my knee pretty bad. I texted John; made an appointment with them both. I can attest that I’m blown away how a one hour session, not just healed my knee completely, but my shoulder that was arthritic and never healed during an old sports injury when I was twelve. Now I never told John or Julia that I had that injury. I actually just got used to my limitations and the pain. After the session I spoke how I felt an energetic clearing there and some discomfort that just vanished. Now nearly two months later it’s like brand new and feels amazing. What I haven’t told you is I battle also with some depression and stress from my Mother passing. That is also gone. Their sessions are literally beyond words! I’m so grateful they both found each other and now share their gifts with our world. Thank you both!”
~ Paula C
"As Julia's reiki teacher and working in the holistic services for a long time; you're lucky enough to come across a person who is dedicated and truly loves what they do. Julia is multifaceted; works with many facets of yoga, reiki, acro, silks, and meditation. Definitely her souls calling. I have been honored enough many times; having reiki and energy work done by her, plus taking her yoga, fitness, and meditation classes. Her energy is beyond amazing. Her enthusiasm and happiness working in these fields creates a truly beautiful atmosphere every single time! I will continue to use her services the rest of my life. To me, even more important; Julia is truly a wonderful woman, heartfelt person, beautiful soul, and you'll be beyond thankful you have the opportunity to just know her. I have only known a handful of people that once they found their calling; put in place that energy and connection to quickly allow their gifts to shine on in our world! Julia, you truly are amazing, my life is better having you in mine and now grateful to be sharing this journey with you as Einstein Studios!"
~ John S
"Julia is amazing. She'll motivate you to be better while also being gentle in making sure you listen to your body. She's super helpful in explaining positions/ flows and it's incredible to watch her physically show positions/flows too. She's a pro. Highly recommend taking classes with this beautiful soul!!"
~ Chantal B
"Not only is Julia down - to - earth as a human being, she is highly experienced in the craft of yoga and dedicated to healing those around her. She is the purest example of love, honor, sacredness, dedication, motivation, and drive. All of which shows in the way she leads her yoga classes. You cannot find a better yoga instructor around."
~ Tanya S
“If you are interested in taking Reiki classes or receiving treatment, you have arrived at exactly the right place! I can't imagine a better teacher for my Reiki lessons than John. He taught me one-on-one, came to my house, and the price was incredibly reasonable! Quite a bargain considering everything I received from them, actually. I felt very privileged to receive individual crystal bowl concerts, and the healing I experienced was very powerful. After each class my knowledge and connection to Reiki grew, and my life is transforming before my eyes into something much better than I ever thought possible! John is an enthusiastic, caring teacher and he really helps and encourages you to bring your own individuality and personal expression into your Reiki practice, to find the connections to Reiki that are the most meaningful to you, and which will enable you to better help others. I'm so excited to start sharing what I have learned with my family, friends, and the rest of the world! I sincerely hope you will take lessons or receive Reiki treatment from John - you (and your life) will become better because of it. Mine certainly has, and I will always be grateful to him for being so generous and giving, and for being such a great example of how I would like to teach and practice in the future.”
~ Michelle Garrett RMT
“I thoroughly enjoyed learning from John, his style was exactly what I learn best from and what I needed. The one on one attention allowed him to answer my specific questions and made me feel safe, special and like the experience was just for me. I very much appreciate his no-nonsense way of explaining Reiki that made each class very easy to learn and actually use it in my daily life, along with his great sense of humor, that made every class fun. The attunements were truly deep; helping me release the past stories and energies I had held onto for the better part of my life. I definitely looked forward to every single class we had and now consider him a friend. Thank you so much; it’s been only two months, but I have experienced profound changes in my life, career, relationships, communication and using these tools to free my self of those restraints. John’s a teacher that truly cares and caters the class to your learning style and what you’re wanting to use reiki for.”
~ Jenna Jehowski
“John, I have tried many therapies out there and hands down yours is the easiest to just discover all that I was searching for. I used your Akashic and Past Life session and the very first session I went peacefully on my journey and was guided along my path and remembered everything after. The coolest part, I only went to places that I needed to, that I discovered was holding me back from my peace, freedom and openness to life, my relationships and future. After, I noticed weeks later; those moments that would of entered my mind and take me from my inner peace, were know longer there. Freedom at last! Thank you, thank you, thank you, John!”
~ Alicia Williams
“On a journey, it can be difficult to appreciate how far you've come until you look back at the path you've traveled. During the course of a full year, January 2019 - February 2020, I completed the Reiki Master Teacher's Certification Program with John. He supported, challenged and motivated me throughout the uphill climbs and downhill treks of my growth and self discovery. While working with John, I was able to meet new versions of myself and find an inner peace I've never known before. Each class was filled with exciting information, laughter, meditation and the healing vibrations of personal crystal bowl concerts.
John has become a very dear friend to me and words cannot truly express my gratitude for his time and patience during my journey. I can only share my life changing experience with others and continue to pass on the radiant light of Reiki.”
~ Best Regards,
Ashley Lightsey-Thompson BA, RMT
“John I have been going to sound baths for sometime and love them all. Great benefits come from each of them. But there is something profoundly different when I go to yours. Everyone I feel a deep inner peace and truly clear. But yours opens other areas of me that with each concert is empowering me to see my self in ways that I never have before. It’s therapy with a spa feeling that lasts over two weeks! I’m just blown away every time! Good luck with your album; can’t wait to it comes out. Thank you for being you and sharing your dharma!”
~ Marc Winterfield
“Where to begin?
My interest in Reiki came from a dear friend that used to talk about it but I never understood it. Then I got invited to one of John's concerts and enjoyed it throughly. The experience was amazing! After that night my dear friend and I were talking and I found out that John would go to homes to do concerts and also one on one services. My friend was in the last stage of cancer. John, later helped my friend during her time in transition; after her passing I definitely started to look at things in a different light.
I had attended a couple more concerts then scheduled a time to learn more about Reiki. I have taken Reiki 1, 2 and Masters with John and could not have asked for a better experience. Not only have I found myself; I found someone that I know I can always turn to. My experience with the one on one classes have been exceptional. There’re truly no words to explain the life touching moments I had with Johns classes and concerts; thank you so much!”
~ Paula Charter
"Can you believe that when I first came to you; I was a person who simply pushed love away, found excuses in everything and blamed the world for my own mishaps.
I was only going to take reiki one from you. My friend said she did from you years ago and was benefiting greatly.
So I decided to call you, you called me right back, which is a rarity today.
We spoke and your kind gestures and happy energy made me feel right at home.
I jumped right in to the first class and I was astonished. As I learned about how profound reiki was; I also was shedding layers of garbage I have held onto “almost without knowing it”. You have a natural ability to navigate the class that benefits the student in so many ways. Must be your life coaching skills. After the class; I mentioned to you some of the difficulties I was experiencing in my life. Instead of expressing I should take another class; you showed me the truly many many ways I could implement reiki daily in my life that will help me. I decided to take the other two classes “reiki 2 and Masters.” Each class and the attunements seemed to clear so much “junk” that I not just felt clear and happier, but my relationships changed, the way I viewed life, the honesty I embraced within myself, the growth I have experienced in such a short time to me is a miracle. I even decided to take the Teachers class and blown away even more. I teach reiki and help others on the side. But what I do most; is use this gift from the stars and simply feel the true hearts infinity I am. It’s true what you said the first class. When you finally “love yourself, then you finally love everything”. I love myself for the first time since I was a child. You’re a true blessing, John. Thank you so very much."

"I have been to bowl concerts for many many years. I have lived in Texas, California and even Nevada. I’m a natural hippie by nature and have used holistic “medicines” since the 70’s. I’m new to town and I found you on Facebook and thought I’ll give you a try. I’m still shaking my head. I can’t even describe how amazing this was. You had mentioned that you know of know one else that does what you do. That’s an understatement. I have been forever changed in a way that has opened my vision, heart and world I graciously love. I take nothing for granted and I have been expanded in ways I’m still opening. Can one concert do that? For me John, it has. I travel quite a bit, but when I’m in town; I will always find where you’re playing and be sure to be there. You have a quality about you that is rare; hard to find, I’m thankful I found you. I hope you know how special you are to me!
~ Jeffery Kimmel
"John, speechless I am! I’ll try to put in words how I feel every time I go to your concerts. Unbelievable!!! Every time, like you expressed is a total new experience. I have been to the stars, my body has gone through amazing transformations in healing and I have let go of unwanted weight I have carried with me my entire life. I’m 77 years old. To feel this good each time; is for me-a big miracle! Thank you so very much. I’m definitely going to try your one on one sessions.
Many happy blessings John!"
~ Albert Litowski
"I am writing to thank you and tell you how absolutely gifted you are. The Sound/Reiki session we had was nothing short of magic. The progression from start to finish brought me deep, deep within myself and also completely outside of all existence. It left me speechless and in such a state of bliss that I forgot how to use the elevator!?
The benefits of the session have stuck with me and I have seen and understood things that I'm sure I will never forget. My favorite part was seeing my chakras come alive, moving and expanding with the vibrations of your playing and song selection. You are an energy alchemist and a master at creating a truly profound musical journey.
Thank you so much for sharing your gift with me. I look forward to many more sessions in the future!"
~ Nina McDermot
“Hi John! Just thinking of you as I have had some wonderful reiki experiences working on my mom. I'm blown away by the different sensations I feel working on different people. My mind is totally blown. I just really love it and am grateful for your incredible teaching.”
~ Nina - Reiki Masters
“My grandfather was rushed to the hospital and had fluid throughout his body, having heart trouble and already diagnosed with COPD; specialists were called in to see what the next step was.
John has been working with a new area of energy work and I had asked him to please help. He sent my grandfather reiki and this new form of energy; I’m astonished how quickly it worked. The hospital was considering possibly long term treatments to surgery; the next day all his fluid was gone and his organs running healthy again. They’re sending him home. Thank you John for your gifts and believing in your gifts and yourself enough to share them. We are so incredibly grateful!”
~ Chelsea Ingram
“I was at my wit ends and reached out to John, he explained his life coaching program; putting me at ease. So I gave it a shot and by the end of my first session was clear and precise on taking the necessary steps to create a life that would benefit me on all levels; (relationships, work and experiencing life by the means of an open heart and clear mind). I had previously gone through 10 years of therapy years ago, that seemingly went in circles; I was just as lost as I was before I started.
John took the time, as my session went three hours (never charged me for going over); I became engaged knowing my own path and how to use the tools I had, to achieve what I set out for myself.
I’m based on the quantum world of science; John aimlessly tied in that perspective into the session, helping me see that “I call awakening” from my own life path and experiences.
After the second session; I walked away a different man: someone who isn’t lost and searching. I’m a man who loves openly and shares that pureness of spirit with everyone. My friends, wife, son, co-workers and clients are beyond words, expressing to me the beautiful change that they witness. I’m grateful I took the opportunity to meet John, he is a true divine man that works through the means of his heart; he truly cares deeply about you and you feel that throughout the session. He even reaches out to me now; two months later. Thank you so so very much! You’re truly amazing.”

“John explained many different avenues to me that would be useful in my life. I have been having trouble with my thoughts, my health and my relationship with my family for years. He met me; which is a rarity these days (face to face) and went over all his programs and left it to me to chose one that would fit my life path. He honestly cared and wasn’t a sales man that many I came across before.
I wanted something that I could use on my own. John went over his meditation classes, reiki, sound therapy and life coaching. But what woke me up was the reiki classes. John explained that once your attuned you can use the reiki on yourself and on my family, friends and even the environment around you; such as my home, food, past, future, emotions, physical body and anything i truly desire.
After the first class I knew I had made the right decision. I was like a child wanting to explore and use this new gift on everything. By the third class I was truly honored to have learned from a man that says we are all students. A man that shares his experiences with you; opening the dialogue so you feel comfortable sharing your experiences with him. I have never had more fun learning; even though I wasn’t going to use this knowledge to start a practice; I know what I have learned will be with me forever. My family is so happy that I did this; it has helped me with my everyday life; I even helped the healing process with my son, my friend and a friend who is back home in Bolivia. My wife and I are communicating openly and I have a new outlook on everything. I feel I see the larger picture of life and embrace that.
You leave the last class knowing how to use all the tools that come with reiki. Plus John, always is contact with you for life; any question you have, anytime. Sounds to good to be true. Take his classes and you will be truly glad you did.
Oh, excuse the long testimony John, but I had to also add the attunements are out of this world. I had such profound experiences each class that I viewed my past traumas from a perspective of healing, love and forgiveness. I could write a short book on how truly amazing the entire experience was! You truly are in the best hands with John, he is a one of a kind reiki teacher. Thank you and God bless!"

“I’m sold on sound therapy; I have been to gongs, a combination of other musical instruments and now with John and his sound meditation. All my aches and pains went away and my mind cleared; I seemingly went of to dream and awake feeling great!”
~ John Adams
"What an amazing experience! The combination of the music, singing bowls, and Reiki is like nothing I have felt before. The energy flow and sensations I had during my sessions were incredible. I saw colors and images. I felt so relaxed and peaceful and that feeling lasted for days. I have had other healing sessions where I did not feel much of anything and did not notice any benefits - that was not the case with John! He is a true gifted healer."
~ Maria Asbel, Certified Reflexology Practitioner, Allen Park, MI
"John is very intuitive, caring and a good listener and he really cares about the work he does. He is devoted to the work he does and that is priceless. My husband and i had a couple of Reiki sessions with John; distant Reiki, a skeptic at first, we are thankful we both did. During this time we both were under a heavy amount of stress and with each session the stress simply eased and left; it was like a blinding rain storm that was following us, seemingly turned to sunshine and calm breezes."
~ Sufi and Brian Olsen, Eugene, OR
"I am so grateful to my dear friend John Steinbauer for offering Reiki energy to my 91 year old Mum. In July 2016, my Mum kept having recurrent episodes of mouth thrush and her doctor was at a loss why it was happening. Her demeanor changed from being upbeat person to someone who lost the will to live; she would not eat and lost of weight because of the discomfort in her mouth. So it was very worrying. Her doctor could not determine the cause of the recurrent thrush and hypersensitivity, so he referred her to a specialist consultant. In the meantime, John performed two sessions of Reiki and suddenly, about a week after, my Mum bounced back to life; eating well again and her upbeat demeanor returned and what's more, to date she remains well! Mum went on to see the specialist consultant, but he could not find anything wrong with her mouth and discharged her with a clean bill of health! Thank you John for your Reiki energy - I will forever be grateful."
~ Della Harbar, London, UK
"As an individual who has been involved in Reiki share circles since my tween years, I can attest John Steinbauer is a very clear, powerful and intuitive channel for Reiki healing sessions. He has helped me release some very painful old traumas and during one recent session the energy was so uplifting I felt like I was starting to levitate off the massage table."
~ Laura Roof, LMT & Reiki Master, Plymouth, MI
"A non-believer to a believer! During the session, I felt a release. Almost like heavy crying but without the tears. After I felt energetic and relaxed. Would recommend to anyone who has issues with stress or anxiety."
~ Jim Ingram III, Northville, MI
"I took Reiki training 1, 2, and Masters from John. I was not sure what to expect. I had been doing some energy work and had learned from different things form a number of people. I knew that i wanted to help people with energy and that it was something i needed to learn more about. I was at a point where i was going to give up. I had just finished taking a couple of classes from another instructor who seemed more interested in figuring out what my abilities are and making a list of them, instead of helping me open them up so i could confidently use them. While John is interested in knowing what your abilities are, which is important for your instructor to know, he does not ignore the opening of your gifts and helping you learn to use them. John's class was particularly helpful for me because he approached teaching Reiki from view point i could relate to. I know other people who have taken his classes and he taught each person by the style of learning they could absorb the information best. My classmate and i needed to have a more relaxed and chatty approach to our classes where we could talk about what we were doing in a jovial manner. John provided us that sort of environment and still kept us on track to learn what we needed most. Another friend who took his classes needed a more structured approach, where it is more serious and focused on the more technical side. John provided them with an environment that was more serious and structured. While he is very professional about his work and abilities he is also able to put you at ease so you gain the most from his classes. He also makes himself available if you have any questions of any sort during your time in his classes, which can be helpful if you run into some sort of a snag in your growth. John uses crystal singing bowls during his classes to help his students clear their energy and bring about desired growth for their lives and practice of Reiki. He also teaches the use of crystal singing bowls which i have not taken, though i am sure this class is as good as his Reiki class. The bottom line is, John is an excellent instructor and if you want to learn Reiki to expand your life or to apply this resource to your calling as a health care practitioner he will be able to open that door for you."
~ Cheryl Cheeseman (Reiki 1, 2, and Masters)
"One of the best decisions I’ve ever made was to take John’s Reiki course. Since my 3 day class with John my life has transformed. John’s sound healing process lead me to be able to meditate and transcend beyond anything I’ve ever experienced in my life. My intuitive abilities have exploded since meeting with him. John teaches the traditional Reiki techniques and also incorporates his sound healing to facilitate deep meditation. I actually learned additional healing techniques from my personal spiritual guides that “spoke” to me during the guided meditations and crystal bowl sessions. After only three days, I felt I was truly a healer and have had several healing sessions that proved that I am! John’s gentle intuitive guidance and demeanor brought a personalized program for my needs. His infectious enthusiasm for Reiki and healing is contagious. He also gets such joy in witnessing the growth of his students. John also keeps open lines of communication and responds to any questions I have in setting up my future healing practice. I look forward to continuing work with John as he is so eager to share his extensive knowledge and gifts to create a beautiful world. Namaste!"
