About David

“If you are depressed, you are living in the past. If you are anxious, you are living in the future. If you are at peace, you are living in the present.”
–Lao Tzu


David Redbord is fiercely committed to guiding women with anxiety and depression to achieve inner peace and sense of well-being so you can have the life of your dreams and feel good about who you are and why you’re here.About David


If you are looking for a proven professional who can guide you to address, anxiety, anger, sadness, fear, exhaustion or conflict with yourself or others you’ve come to the right place.




With 3 years of experience working with amazing clients with similar worries and concerns and guiding them to achieve remarkable success, my mission and commitment is to help you find ways to enjoy your life now, let go of guilt and shame around meeting your own needs, and do what you need to do in order to feel good.


My path to become an Alternative Therapist, Reiki Master, and mediator became clear at an early age. At 12 I began to feel energy in my hands as threads that connected the fingers of either hand. Around the same time I was guided internally to close my eyes and follow visualizations for transcendental meditation, having never even heard of meditation before. These were my first moments working with, shifting and transforming energy.


What Clients Say


Clients say remarkable things about the impact my work has on their life and business success. Examples include:


“David is truly a healer. I went to Akashic Reiki to help deal with some issues at work. In one hour, Dave managed to work a miracle. I went into the session angry and crying about being mistreated at work. After our session, I felt like a different person! I had a very profound experience in his hands, and I trust him implicitly to intuitively know what’s wrong and to use the right tools to make me whole again. I highly recommend David and Akashic Reiki.” – May W., Animal Care Specialist (Office Session)


“Had one session with David last Thursday. It’s been 5 days, and I’m seeing fantastic results. After struggling through a family crisis over the last 7 years or so, the last year has been about taking better care of myself. I’ve struggled with physical and emotional health issues and have been making progress little by little. My session with David seemed to power-boost my healing. My dreams are clear and full of current and meaningful content. And, my ablity to distinguish sources of my daily functional determinants is significantly clearer. I expect this improvement to continue over the next few weeks. In the meantime, very grateful for our encounter and would definitely recommend David to anyone needing to power-boost their healing process!”
-M.L., Business and Clerical manager (Office Session)


We met remotely via Skype to address an energetic block I have had in my neck for the last 8 months.  I had been unable to clear it despite spending months on it with a number of people working with me. Sure enough, after about 2 hours of deep inner work, from inner child to the violet flame, it was gone!


David is a man who can hold some serious space, guide some serious process, and does it all with such a humbleness that skips the whole “new-age spiritual master” thing. Nothing but pure loving kindness and compassion from this man. Despite having already run overtime, when he asked how I was feeling and I told him I didn’t feel fully balanced yet, he spent another 20 minutes working with me through a balancing and centering exercise with the patience of a saint.


As the energetic shifts settled, I felt a deep sense of peace as a big smile spread across my face. The blockage was gone and I felt a strong and steady flow of energy from the tips of my toes out the top of my head. If you’re looking to move some serious energy, clear any blockages, drop any baggage, or try something totally new that will change your life, get in touch with this man. Infinite gratitude to David and Akashic Reiki!
– Nick J., Activist (Skype/Distance Healing Session)

Helping Clients Feel Better


What lights me up about this work is knowing that when people feel better, their lives change. They can move forward more in alignment with their true selves, who they really are. Their interactions within themselves, with their families, and their self-confidence all shift in a positive way. This beautiful shift then ripples outward into their family and community.


What sets me apart from other service providers is the plethora and variety of healing techniques I can use depending upon the specific needs of the client. Examples include:


I use breathwork to help clients release old trauma and shift energy in a big way.


I use Reiki to facilitate relaxation and grounding and to bring clients back to a state of alignment.


I work with clients using tapping (EFT), which can address anything, including anxiety, depression, phobias and post-traumatic stress disorder.


One of my favorite tools is inner child work which can be used to trace back from present anger, sadness or fear to the original childhood memory that caused the issue, allowing us to heal and release those feelings so that we can respond very differently in the present.


Inner child work also cleanses and purifies the unintegrated vibration of that particular memory which has caused us to attract similar situations, changing our point of attraction from a Law of Attraction perspective. Lastly, often in these childhood memories we told ourselves that it wasn’t okay to feel the way we were feeling or someone, perhaps our parents told us that. We ended up suppressing this child self. Inner child work reintegrates this child self so you can move forward in your life now with that self, more whole and complete.

Five Things About Me


Five things about me and my experience that might surprise and delight you – while serving our work together are:


1. I began this work with myself because I wanted to feel better, connect more deeply with myself and others, and to find my own answers.


2. I have overcome anxiety, social anxiety, and depression in my own life. I have dealt with these issues from a very young and the work I do with clients uses the same tools that have helped me to feel better and move forward.


3. During my healing process, I noticed that we often define ourselves based on the damage, or what we perceive to be wrong with us. I asked myself, how can we define ourselves based on wholeness. I arrived at two answers: Be here now, and be the change you wish to see in the world. When we are in the present, we can feel good, letting go of future worries or past pain. When we embody the change we wish to see in the world, we are putting our best self forward, creating change in ourselves and helping others to live from that space too, just by being.


4. The famous philosopher Krishnamurti said “The highest form of human intelligence is to observe yourself without judgement.” Thich Nhat Hahn discusses deep listening, as a way of listening to someone to allow them to empty their heart without judgement. I hold a space of deep compassionate listening, without judgement so that my clients feel heard and understood and so that we can work together to make sure their needs are met in the best way possible.


5. I feel truly honored and so grateful to be in a space to help others feel better. As I teach my clients, I find it critical to meet our own needs first. When I meet my own needs, I fill my own cup. I can then serve others from the overflow of that cup. However, if I do not take care of my own needs, my cup runs low and I do not have enough to share. So when I meet my own needs, I am able to come from a better space to be of service to others.
