“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.”

“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)
"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.
My father 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 Dad for your gifts and believing in your gifts and yourself enough to share them. Love you!”
~ Chelsea Hooper
“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.”
~ Alan Vidovic
“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!"
~ Marcel Vidovic
“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!"
