Meet Our Holistic Healers
Mary Spohn Ph.D / LRMT
Holistic Health Practitioner
Hi, I'm Mary Spohn, owner of The Reiki Place. I started the Reiki Place because I want to help people get off medications, feel better and find their way to good health. In my sessions I like to help you figure out what is causing your imbalance. We are born into a culture that worries too much and works too hard. We are indoctrinated with so many beliefs that prevent us from achieving happiness. But we can and should aspire to attaining ongoing peace and joy in our lives. When we find that light it radiates from within us and make others around us happy too.
I began my Holistic Health journey in 2014 when I first started taking classes in Holistic Health and discovered Reiki. Over the course of time I have learned to appreciate that Reiki is a very effective way to attain and maintain health because it operates on all levels; mind, body and spirit. Reiki transforms people. It's very gentle and works with all other modalities. It's also a great way to make friends! Many of my clients have become my friends and some of my friends have become my clients.
One of my biggest joys is teaching Reiki to others. There is a saying that goes if you catch a man a fish he will eat for a day. If you teach a man to fish he will eat for a lifetime. I believe teaching Reiki helps people find peace and happiness for a lifetime. In the meantime I discovered Biofield Tuning - a sound therapy modality that kick starts the healing process into high gear. I will sometimes combine both Biofield Tuning and Reiki for a powerful healing session.
I am currently expanding my practice to include homeopathy. I will intern in the U.K. in the summer of 2020 and will then begin taking homeopathy patients. I'm excited to add this very effective and long-time suppressed form of energy medicine to my energy practice. It very much complements Reiki and Biofield Tuning. Below are my qualifications.

Lexie Havens B.Sc.
Hi, I’m Lexie Havens and I believe that health encompasses several components outside of the physical body. Coming from Oklahoma, I did not have the resources to learn about alternative healing techniques until attending college. This is where I discovered my passion for holistic health. I believe that health should not be treated by using pharmaceuticals, but rather by looking at the body as a whole. Instead of treating physical symptoms I believe we should find the root of why these physical symptoms are manifesting. The mind-body-spirit connection is an essential part of understanding the way your body works and how to take care of yourself. My goal is to help make you the best version of yourself.
As I finished college, where I obtained a degree in Health Education and Promotion, I had to find an internship that would complete my degree. My family lives in Colorado so I started my search there. I googled “holistic health Colorado Springs” and one of the first people that showed up was Mary Spohn. I read her bio and discovered she would be the perfect mentor. Several months later, I was interning with her. The 3-month internship was one of the most mind-enhancing experiences I have ever had. Mary taught me about Reiki, Biofield Tuning, Spiritual Counseling, and much more. I truly believe Reiki drew me in, as I did not find it, but it found me. In July 2019 I took her Reiki Class and learned Usui Reiki Ryoho/Holy Fire® III. I have given my own sessions to family and friends, and now I am bringing Reiki healing to my clients at The Reiki Place with fascinating results. In February 2020 I am set to take some advanced Reiki training and can't wait to bring an even more powerful Reiki vibration to my clients.
Yamaris Payne BA, RMT
Hi, I am Yamaris Payne and I am a firm believer in natural ways to treat and heal just about any ailment that humanity is capable of experiencing. Whether through sound therapy, energy work or any other type of natural remedy, you are bound to find what will work for you if you seek it. I thoroughly enjoy helping people find whatever makes them thrive mentally, physically and spiritually. During my youth I discovered that I had, and still have a very special connection with children and young people. I am from Puerto Rico and I grew up with family and friends, embracing natural ways to make people feel better. I have had innate healing ability from an early age. Later, I came upon Reiki as I was looking for ways to improve my innate healing abilities. Before Reiki, when treating those around me, I was very confident healing their physical symptoms but I was struggling with ways to help them heal emotionally. The realization came to me that I needed to find a way to help them heal beyond the body. I also knew that if I wanted to reach and help people outside my family and close friends, I needed to train professionally. This led me to Mary and The Reiki Place. Reiki has given me the confidence and the skill to treat the whole body, mind, body and spirit.
I have a bachelor’s degree in arts and humanities from The University of Puerto Rico and I am a qualified Reiki Master Teacher of Usui/Holy Fire® III Reiki. In Aril 2020 I am scheduled to become a Registered Reiki Karuna® Master/Teacher as well. I am currently enrolled in the The Reiki Place’s spiritual counseling program and will soon become a qualified Spiritual Counselor. I speak English and Spanish and would love the opportunity to meet you and get to know you. I will be honored to be part of your life’s journey to a better, happier and healthier life in all aspects of what makes you unique in your own individual way.
Hola, me llamo Yamaris Payne y creo firmemente en que existen maneras naturales de tratar todo tipo de enfermedades y retos que enfrentamos. Ya sean problemas físicos, emocionales o espirituales; las terapias de energía, terapias de sonido y remedios naturales entre otros, pueden ayudar grandemente a mejorar la salud mental, física y espiritual de cada individuo.
Tengo un bachillerato en artes y humanidades. El español es mi lengua materna. Soy practicante y maestra de Reiki y estoy estudiando para certificarme como consejera espiritual. Las terapias de Reiki ayudan a traer balance en todos los aspectos que componen al ser humano. Sería un honor para mi tener la oportunidad de ayudarte en la búsqueda de una vida más balanceada en espíritu, cuerpo y alma.
A propósito, damos clases de Reiki en español. Pregúntanos.
Julie Speetjens B.SC / RMT
Hi, I’m Julie Speetjens and my motto is “Worry Less, Reiki More”. I began my healing journey when corporate burnout had me feeling like a robot just going through the motions of my life. Reiki has been a springboard to my spiritual awakening, and has renewed my life-force energy!
In sessions with family, friends, and clients, I have had consistently positive healing results. It is quite normal during a Reiki session for some clients to fall asleep, and many of them report feeling lighter and more relaxed after a session. Sensations range from tingling, wavy pressure, heat, visions of colors, and heavy limbs, to feeling a comforting presence in the room with us. In my sessions I sometimes meet a client’s Spirit Animal or loved ones who have passed. They all bring in such incredible feelings of unconditional love, pride, protectiveness, and support for us! Powerful validations of these visions strengthen a sense of peace, connection, and comfort for my clients, and fuel my wonder and gratitude for all that Reiki energy has to offer.
I believe we are not a body with a Soul, but rather a Soul with a body. We are all here in our perfectly imperfect lives in order to learn and grow. We often spend our lives searching for external happiness before realizing that we can create it within ourselves. Through my Reiki Master studies, I have released negative energies and destructive patterns that no longer serve my spiritual growth, and I have learned to consciously choose positive emotions and constructive actions. After all, the habits we create to survive no longer serve us when it’s time to thrive! I have given my inner-critic permission to be silent. I have learned to overcome my doubts, to trust my intuition, and to choose love over fear. In 2019, Reiki helped me recover from hip surgery by alleviating my pain, promoting sound sleep, and empowering me to stop taking pain medicine and abandon my crutches weeks ahead of schedule. Reiki is a transformative force that truly can heal our minds, our bodies, and our Spirit if we allow it.
I believe that the healing power of Reiki energy is limitless, and I am beyond thrilled to be working and learning with Mary and my fellow healers at The Reiki Place. I hope Reiki will help you fall in love with your life again, and that you will let me be part of that amazing journey!
I am a Registered Holy Fire® III Reiki Master. I have a Bachelor of Science Degree in Environmental Science from the University of Alabama and a Certificate in Energy Medicine from UCCS. I am scheduled to become a Registered Karuna Reiki® Master in April of 2020.
