Registered Nurse, BSN, MA

I am Reva Rasmussen and it may sound corny but it is just so real – I am called to take care of people. It’s a wonderful calling that summoned me early in life to become a registered nurse and, later in life, to become an EFT practitioner and Reiki healer.

It may be that Centering Prayer started me on the journey of energy healing. The great stillness and the emptying effect of prayer opened me up to explore that which is beyond. I studied Therapeutic Touch and Healing Touch. I experienced chakra balance and clearing. I learned Reiki and EFT. All wonderful, energetic healing practices.

The practice of Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), also called tapping, combines gentle touch with mindful speaking of thoughts and feelings. It is performed by tapping with our fingertips on acupuncture points on the hands, face and body while focusing on an issue we wish to resolve. EFT calms the amygdala structure in the brain which facilitates the release of chemicals bringing us into a restful state.  It’s a safe technique that one can learn and do on oneself anytime or it can be used by a therapist to address deeper, more complicated problems.  It has been shown to be effective for a range of conditions, including job-related stress, weight loss and post-traumatic stress disorder.

Reva Rasmussen, a registered nurse, is an EFT practitioner and Reiki healer.  She sometimes combines both in healing sessions.  She practices in person at Holistic Gateway and on Zoom.

EFT and Collage Workshop

I’m excited about Aging – or maybe I’m not!

In this fun, 3-hour workshop we will explore the good, bad and beautiful aspects of aging using guided meditation, EFT and collage.

We will begin with a brief guided meditation, then I will lead an EFT session in which we explore how we feel about aging.  Don’t worry if you don’t know Emotional Freedom Technique. It is safe and easy-to-learn self-help tool that releases difficult issues.

Lastly, we will express what we’ve discovered by making a collage.

We will meet in person and masked March 12 at Holistic Gateway Center for Healing Arts, 11 Little Canada Road E, Little Canada, MN 55117
