Healing Your Relationship with Your Body and Food through Reiki and Spirituality
Show Notes

Welcome back to another episode of ReikiCafe Radio! This week, join Christine Renee as she interviews Marla Mervis-Hartmann. Marla shares her personal story in her struggle over controlling her food and body size only to realize control is not a loving approach to healing.

Reiki was a integral part of her healing journey from mindset,  physical healing, to sexuality, to past traumas where it was all rooted and as a Reiki Practitioner and Coach she helps others do the same. We talk about the shame, guilt, and self-hate, the shadow self, that was ready for healing. If you're working "hard" to heal, know there is a softer way through Reiki.

So grab your tea or coffee and join us as we sip our way through this week's epsiode!

About Marla:

Do you love your body? As the creator of Love Your Body, Love Yourself, Marla Mervis-Hartmann helps women access their yes! to that question. After experiencing years of dysfunction in relation to food, exercise, and body confidence, Marla transformed her life through the radical act of self-compassion and friending herself. She has since used her experiences to help empower women as they choose appreciation for their bodies, honor themselves through nourishing lifestyle choices, and cultivate confidence along the way. Marla works at Ai Pono a Eating Disorder Recovery Center sharing Body-Love Reiki Circles and was known as the leading body image expert and Reiki Master at Journey Malibu–a Drug and Alcohol rehabilitation center. Most recently, she has been featured at TEDx Salinas. Her dedication to women’s studies has had several focuses including women’s sexual wellness, postpartum care, pelvic floor support, tantra and yoga instruction, massage therapy, and lifestyle coaching through Love Your Body, Love Yourself. Marla’s mission is to inspire women to feel good about themselves as they pursue the lives they desire. Currently, Marla lives in Maui with her husband, Olaf, and son, Aspen–where she works full-time as a professional coach, speaker, facilitator, and Living Light Reiki Master and Instructor. Marla will see her first book, Be-Friend Yourself on bookshelves beginning of 2024.
