Watertown Massage Associates is happy to offer Reiki in our offices through its associative collaboration with Paula Ronayne of “Synergy with Spirit”
Paula Ronayne is a Reiki practitioner who has been healing others for her entire lifetime. After a near death experience in 2005, she realized it was her life purpose. A jewelry business she opened in 2007, gave her an awareness that she could feel the energy emitted off the stones she used in her creations along with the energy of the patrons that came to see her. Thus, a passion for Reiki ensued. From mobile healing, hospital visits, volunteer work in hospices and being an integral part of wellness centers, Paula’s affiliation with Watertown Massage Associates is the next step of her journey
