My name is Carmem Matos and I'm a co-founder of Reiki Inner Light along with my dear soul sister Rebeca Costa, who has been an inspiration in my life. I am a second generation certified Reiki Master Practitioner. I learned all I know about the healing art of Reiki from my wonderful mother, who has been my Mentor and teacher in life. I became a Reiki practitioner in 2009 but I have been a certified massage therapist since 2003, integrating in my practice, Crystal Therapy, Aromatherapy, and various modalities of healing work.
My journey as a therapist started in Brazil, my native country, when I got my bachelor's degree in psychology in my early twenties. I've had the privilege to practice as a psychotherapist, helping many people for years, in a private practice and at the Santa Casa de Misericoridia Hospital, in Rio de Janeiro. When I moved to The United States, a new journey began and so, the opportunity to integrate mind and body in a holistic way. Since then, my heart has been filled with love and gratitude for being able to help my clients create the ideal relationship between their bodies, minds and souls; by implementing and using all the healing tools that are available to me through my knowledge of Reiki.
I have been practicing meditation for years, and I teach and conduct meditation classes as well, helping my students find their peace of mind and a connection within themselves.
I am the founder and creator of Inner Bliss Essentials. A line of hand made, one of a kind, wellness jewelry, which has always been my pride. I would have never imagined that one day, I would call myself an artist. But it happened. Out of inspiration in one of my trips to Brazil, I decided to give it a try and I created an Aromatherapy necklace for myself. From then on, I discovered that my creativity had been awaken and my desire to combine beauty and healing is manifested in Inner Bliss Essentials.
I am very grateful to be on this path with my dear friend Rebeca who is a great healer and a wellness jewelry artist as well.
Peace and Love.
