What People Are Saying
Patricia provides a safe and supportive space for me. She’s an extraordinary listener, flexible and goes with my flow. With each session, I gain new insight, perspective and acceptance. She helped me see possibilities where I felt there were none. I like that she doesn’t tell me what to do, but helps me see what I can do. She taught me tools that I can now use on my own.
– Monica, Santa Cruz, CA
I liked the gentle yet firm assistance that Patricia provided when guiding me to/through revealing moments of self-discovery. It was amazing since I was not consciously aware of some things I was holding on to and needed to release. Also, I did not realize that a few coaching sessions would produce such pivotal results.
– BV, Baltimore, MD
I really enjoyed this experience as it provided a safe space for me to openly discuss the challenges I face in all aspects of my life. I liked that the coaching sessions combined traditional coaching methods, along with other components like visualization and Reiki.
– Joan W, Ojai, CA
I liked working on an issues and turning it round to test the truthfulness of it. Thus rather than seeing something in a negative light, I was able to adjust my thinking on a particular issue or about a particular situation or person in my life by looking at it from a different view point. This ‘work’ I found to be very useful and have applied in my life to other situations.
– Rosie, Oxford, UK
I liked the use of meditation and metaphor work. I helped me peel away layers and dig deeper into myself.
– Rebecca, Melbourne, Australia
Something I love about having sessions with Patricia (Starchaser) is that she pulls in whatever type of healing is needed (of course, she always asks if it’s OK). She sometimes surprises me with an aromatherapy inhaler, which she say’s “helps me maintain that clearer state.”
— Beth W, Rockville, MD
Patricia (Starchaser) is a great Reiki Master. She has used many kinds of Reiki on me and each time I have felt wonderfully balanced and much clearer. As a Reiki Master myself, I have recommended my clients to her for classes. That is how much I trust her!
— JC, Washington, DC
I have been to Patricia (Starchaser) for Reiki sessions for several years. I have benefitted enormously from the energy treatments she has given me. Patricia is an exceptionally good Reiki Master. She makes me feel relaxed and takes time to understand any physical and emotional issues and address them. Since I have been to Patricia, I have had no health problems at all and have become much more balanced and centered.
— CT, Washington, DC
I really loved my two reiki sessions with Patricia. I had gone in to see her for a pain in my hip that was causing me to limp. We discovered that I was spending too much energy giving to others and not enough focused on me. She said I needed to do more yin activities. I felt like the Reiki really put me on the right path to healing and gave me the courage to change my work schedule to work for me. I took Patricia’s advice and started doing yoga and soaking in hot epsom salt baths and within a couple days not just my hip pain was gone but also my sugar cravings as well. She has a wealth of knowledge and I would highly recommend her to anyone.
— EP, Washington, DC
I’ve had many Reiki sessions with Starchaser (Patricia). Her healing hands are amazing. You can feel heat of her hands and the energy moving through your body. I find Reiki very relaxing and cleansing.
— IGWS, Bethesda, MD
I have a very stressful job and, as a result, I often have trouble falling asleep. I had an evening Reiki session with Patricia – just one – and afterwards, I fell asleep easily and rested deeply. I was just so utterly relaxed.
— CCP Washington, DC
We’re really into the Heartwave. We receive great insightful information and we both benefit so much from the reflection that we do afterward.
— Sue and Bruce T, Washington, DC
I was curious about the IET Soulstar Clearing, but didn’t really think it would be much different from other energy work I’ve had. Was I ever surprised. Patricia channeled a whole stream of intuitive information. She didn’t realize it at first, but she told my whole life story in that one continuous stream. Amazing!
— John, Bethesda, MD
Patricia (Starchaser) is not only a spiritual person and Reiki Master, but also a scientist and an artist who deeply understands and appreciates the complexity of being human. She creates fragrance masterpieces custom-designed for the individual, as well as supplying more traditional aromatherapy products with well-known fragrances. We have had the luxurious pleasure of experiencing and using a number of her products, including custom-blended aromatherapy sprays, hand creams, foot scrubs, and bath oils. We recommend Patricia and Starchaser’s wonderful products whole-heartedly!
— SPB and KCB, Gaithersburg, MD
Starchaser (Patricia) has done shamanic journey work with me before and each time I’ve received a lot of really helpful information about the specific question that we journeyed about. But, when she added Starchaser “Journey Work Diffuser Oils” to the session this last time, I felt a significant intensification of the experience. I plan to request diffuser oils for my Reiki sessions too.
— CB, Washington, DC
Aromatherapy and Aromatic Products
I took Starchaser’s Jet Lag inhaler with me to Fiji (crossed the international date line to get there). I sniffed it repeatedly on the plane over as advised. The first day I was a sleepy at dinnertime, but thereafter I was fine. It really worked. Thanks Starchaser!
— Emma, Washington, DC
Starchaser designed a non-talc-based, all-natural foot powder for me. My clients love the scent, the texture is lovely to work with and it has antibacterial and anti fungal essential oils. It’s just perfect!
— JS, Columbia, MD
I’m a social worker and many of my clients have serious issues and a lot of negative energy around them. I wanted to use something to clear the consultation space, but I found sage sticks were too smoky, obvious and irritating. I contacted Starchaser to design something for me, but found that they already had great products for that – diffuser oils and, even better, a liquid smudge. What a fantastic idea. I the Clean Energy Energetic spritz at work and the diffuser oil at home.
— MAC, Arlington, VA
I’m blown away at how finely crafted and beautifully scented Starchaser’s Balanced facial scrubs are. I’ve noticed a difference in the texture of my skin. It’s smoother, clearer and has a healthier (rosier) color. I’ve tried the Soft and Fresh Scrub too. That gives me a bright outlook at the start of my day. Thanks Starchaser!
— Valerie, Boulder, CO
I’m an energy worker and I’ve been using Starchaser’s Energy Work Support diffuser oil, which I really like. It clears the room, creates a protective space and raises the vibration. I truly sense a difference when I use it. But, I wanted something just for me. Patricia took the time to learn all about how I conduct a session, what I really want to offer my clients and what I personally feel about how I do my work. I just love my special blend and I am so grateful for the time and care that Patricia so kindly gave to me.
— Marie, Kensington, MD
I’m a professional musician. I had a particularly long and difficult concert to preform so during the intermission I used my Focus and Concentration personal inhaler and felt fully revived.
— BJN, Washington, DC
— DN, Gaithersburg, MD
I love that Clean Energy is natural and made from the same plants as my stick smudge. This liquid smudge is so light that I can use it with sensitive clients.
— PEB, Cambridge, MA
Starchaser’s Energy Work Support is wonderful. I like that is does much more than clear negative energy. It smells so natural and I can really sense the change in vibration. I’ve used a lot of different liquid smudges and this is definitely my favorite.
— MM, Brooklyn, NY
Whenever I inhale my grounding inhaler, I feel like my whole being pulls into my core and down into the earth. I love it.
— Alex, Arlington, VA
Starchaser’s “Cold Block” inhaler stopped my cold dead!
— IGS, Bethesda, MD
I have two roll ons that Patricia designed specifically for me – one to cheer me up and give me emotional support (I recently suffered a significant loss) and one for grounding. I love them both. I regularly roll them on specific reflex points on my feet and on my body and they really help me a lot. I feel an immediate wave of relief when I catch a whiff of either blend.
— Mary Beth, Rockville, MD
I felt myself coming down with a cold so I picked up one of Starchaser’s “Cold Block” inhalers. I used it several times a day for a few days and watched the those mild initial cold symptoms pass without ever going into a miserable full-blown cold! I felt cold free in just a few days!
— ES, Bethesda, MD
Recently I experienced an extremely stressful period at work. Starchaser designed an inhaler for me. The scent was very soothing. Whenever I smelt it, I immediately felt calmer and more grounded.
— Graham, Silver Spring, MD
I have used Starchaser’s Bright Citrus Salt Scrub that I just loved. The aroma was orange and honey that I just wanted to eat. The scrub really left my skin feeling smooth and refreshed. The bathroom really smelled nice after a shower with this salt scrub.
— Debora, Glen Cove, NY
My two-year old daughter has eczema which gets exacerbated in the winter by the dry air. When it is acting up it is really itchy and she scratches herself until she bleeds. I tried different over-the-counter options which didn’t always work well. In order to avoid moving to cortisone cream, which was the next option proposed by our pediatrician, I asked Patricia to make something suitable. She came up with this wonderful balm which smells amazing (lavender and other notes). My daughter likes using it, and more importantly lets me put it on her, and we call it Miss Patricia’s special cream. It has done wonders for helping us keep her eczema in check this winter.
— GZ, Arlington, VA
I am very grateful for my Starchaser inhaler and for all the good it has done for my lungs and breathing. I used to need to go to my doctor (acupuncturist) to recuperate and gain some strength and oxygen. Since I started using my personal inhaler I haven’t needed to go to my doctor! So, my inhaler is really wonderful. My doctor has now said he’s interested in the inhaler because it could help so many other people.
— CC, Paris, France

— Mary Ann, Takoma Park, MD
I used Starchaser’s Minor Cuts and Wounds Balm on a cut that got infected while I was working in the bush in Africa. I applied it for just a couple of days. All the inflammation disappeared and it healed up nicely. No scar!
— SAS, Bethesda, MD
I used Starchaser’s Lemon Lift Foot Bath Salts after spending the day at an exhibit, which meant I was on my feet the whole day. The lemony aroma was really nice. I felt very relaxed. The salts were just what my feet needed. They felt smooth and reenergized afterwards. I highly recommend Foot Bath Salts for anyone who spends a lot of time on there feet.
— DB, Great Neck, NY
I’ve used Epson salts for energy clearing for years. I now use Starchaser salts because the aromatherapy adds another wonderfully sensual and effective sensation.
— BBM, Takoma Park, MD
I love Starchaser’s Ease Facial Spritz. It has a wonderful scent of orange blossoms. I especially like to use it when I’m feeling slow or kinda blah. It seems to mist the blues away and makes me smile.
— Jean, Glen Echo, MD
I started using Starchaser’s Cool Flash Hydrosol Spritz for hot flashes. What an instantaneous relief! Now I use it for a quick freshen up at work when the air is hot, stuffy, and stagnant!!
— EJ, Bethesda, MD
I work for an international organization and am always traveling to the other side of the world. Jet lag is a problem: waking up at 2:00 a.m. and struggling to keep awake during my mid-afternoon meetings. Starchaser made a special custom-made “jet lag” bath blend for me. It works fabulously. I put it in the bath the first one or two days of my trip. I sleep deeply and no longer wake up early or drag later in the day. Now I never travel without it.
— World Traveler, Washington, DC
I never travel without a Starchaser “Cold Block” inhaler. It has saved me so many times. Whenever I feel those early symptoms of a cold, I pull out my inhaler and breath it in morning, noon and night for a day or two and it’s amazing – it’s gone. Fantastic stuff!!
— ELM, Silver Spring, MD
Courses and Workshops
I loved everything about my class. Awesome! Plenty of hands-on practice and the small class size was super beneficial.
— KB, Columbia, MD (Intermediate Integrated Energy Therapy II)
I just loved my teacher. She was incredibly knowledgeable about Reiki and energy work in general. She was really flexible and open to other ideas. I wish I had just taken her Level I and II Usui Reiki class in the first place (Usui Review I and II).
— Jodie, Arlington, VA (Usui Reiki I and II Review)
Patricia created a safe and supportive environment for learning, sharing and healing.
— Elizabeth, Washington, DC (Western Reiki I)
Patricia is a very knowledgable instructor and a powerful healer. She is clear, thorough and patient. I liked that she encouraged sharing and was open to the student’s perspectives and views. I felt safe and respected.
— Laura, Silver Spring, MD (Basic, Intermediate and Advanced Integrated Energy Therapy II)
What I particularly liked about Patricia’s class was she pulled me out of my comfort zone in a friendly and supportive way – put me at ease with something that really challenged me and my beliefs. It helped that she took the time to explain everything clearly and thoroughly and answered a lot of questions.
— Jill, Washington, DC (Western Reiki I)
I took a two-day Reiki course with Patricia (Starchaser). I am interested in energy healing and wanted to know how to use Reiki for myself as well as to work on others. Patricia was a fantastic teacher who clearly has a natural affinity with the practice of Reiki and is very experienced. She provided the group with both the basic theory and a lot of hands-on practice. We were able to ask lots of questions as well as receive and give Reiki. Since the course, I have successfully practiced Reiki on myself and on others. I am inspired to take a further course with Patricia.
— Caroline, Washington, DC (Western Reiki I)
I loved my Reiki I and Reiki II classes with Patricia. Something she does that other teachers don’t is she taught us about energy clearing and setting a protected space using energy, herbs and essential oils. Not technically Reiki, it’s still so important to me to know that I have tools to protect myself and my clients.
— Liz, Rockville, MD (Western Usui Reiki Level I)
Loved Patricia’s sense of humor and playfulness.
— AL, Gaithersburg, MD (Basic, Intermediate and Advance Integrated Energy Therapy)
I took a wonderful Reiki class with Patricia. We had lots of time to practice, ask questions and share. Patricia is a very experienced Reiki Master and teacher, she’s knowledgeable and supportive. Her manual is extremely informative and complete. I refer to it all the time now. I plan to take the next level with her too.
— Emma, Bethesda, MD (Western Usui Reiki Level I)
I took Western Usui Reiki Level I with Patricia. I’ve never done anything like this and I have to say that learning Reiki took me out of my comfort zone. Patricia spent a lot of time explaining things and preparing us for the big step to practice. She is very knowledgeable and patient, flexible and really supportive. She gave us so much individual attention and a really detailed manual for when we’re on our own. I’m thrilled that I took plunge and learned Reiki. I will definitely be joining the her Reiki Shares.
— Carole, Washington, DC (Western Usui Reiki Level I)
I took the Reiki Review class with Patricia. It was dynamic, flexible and really informative. I learned a lot of new things and I feel more confident about my practice now.
— James, Annapolis, MD (Western Reiki I and II Review)
I attended Starchaser’s (Patricia’s) workshop on getting a good nights sleep, and it was full of great information and ideas. I never thought of sleep as really deep relaxation before. We did a wonderful relaxation exercise that was combined with a beautiful aromatherapy diffuser. I went right to sleep that night and slept really well.
— MJK, Washington, DC (Workshop on Getting A Good Night’s Sleep and Aroma Relaxation)
I attended a day of meditation and personal pathfinding at my church and Starchaser had a wonderful session on essential oils for meditation and spiritual growth. We learned about the energetic and spiritual aspects of aromatherapy and essential oils. The history was fascinating. We then got to sample different diffuser and inhaler blends. My favorite was “Dispel Fear and Walk Courageously.”
— Barbara, Washington, DC (Workshop on Aromatics for Personal and Spiritual Reflection)
Starchaser’s (Patricia’s) introductory presentation to aromatherapy was very informative and fun. She illustrated how smell works and what parts of the brain are involved in smelling. She explained how essential oils are extracted too. She presents it so clearly and enthusiastically. What I loved, though, was the part where we got to smell different essential oils and compare how they effect us differently – where they went in the body and what memories and feelings they invoked.
— JSW, Rockville, MD (Workshop on Aromatherapy: It’s Not Just Smell)
I thoroughly enjoyed my class – the content, format, teaching style and loads of hands-on experience. There was plenty of time to ask questions and discuss. We were able to talk about additional interests like animal totems, intuitive information and such.
— KS, Arlington, VA (Western Usui Reiki Level I)
I attended Starchaser’s demonstration and introduction to Reiki salon at Pathways. It was incredible how much she knew about the client without ever asking or knowing her. I learned so much and was given very useful flyers.
— SW, Silver Spring, MD (Introduction to Reiki and Demonstration)
My class covered a wide spectrum with a detailed presentation and extensive hands-on practice.
— DZ, Arlington, VA (Western Usui Reiki Level I)
I went to a demonstration Patricia did on “Aromatherapy: It’s Not Just Smell.” Very educational and new for me. I never knew anything about the science behind aromatherapy or that essential oils are energetic. I now have a better idea about how essential oils work. I loved the sensing part of the presentation. I recommend Patricia to anyone or any club looking for an interesting and fun topic to learn about.
— KJM, Bethesda, MD (Workshop on Aromatherapy: It’s Not Just Smell)
I took Usui Reiki Level I and II with Patricia. I’ll definitely take Level III with her when I’m ready. Patricia takes lots of time to explain things clearly, she’s very kind, encouraging and flexible.
— JS, Gaithersburg, MD
Patricia took the time to thoroughly discuss and answer questions. We had lots of time to practice distance healing. The Starchaser manual is very through. It was a great class. I learned a lot. Thank you!
— KS, Arlington, VA (Western Usui Reiki Level II)
The small class size made it possible to get plenty of hands-on experience, personal attention and every question answered. Patricia is easy going and provides an excellent learning and growing environment.
— LC, Washington, DC (Western Usui Reiki Level II)
I really liked that there was so much time to practice and share. I appreciate the very detailed and easy to understand manual with references.
