Empower. Inspire. Enlighten.


Melissa Schaff, Reiki Master Practitioner, Intuitive and Writer

I strive to empower, inspire and enlighten. I do this in a number of ways. First, I offer Intuitive Reiki with Channeled Messages. What’s Reiki? It’s a 2,500-year-old Japanese technique for reducing stress and promoting healing. 

What’s channeling?   It’s where I hear messages from your Guardian Angels, Ascended Beings or maybe even deceased loved ones. I never really know who’s going to be coming to the energetic party. I just know their messages encourage, validate and often times, soothe. Everything they say, EVERYTHING is aimed at helping you grow and heal on some level. Nothing is random.

I am a Reiki Master Practitioner which means I can – and do! – teach all levels of Usui Reiki. I am approved by both the ND Board of Massage and the ND Board of Nursing for CE credits. Teaching is a passion of mine (kind of like writing). I love seeing student’s faces light up when they feel or sense energy. I have also created several Empowerment classes. Check out my Upcoming Classes page for more info.

You want to know a little bit about me? Sure! Prior to starting IFR in 2006, I was in banking. Yep, that’s right. Analytical/logical/black and white Banking.  I started my career when I was 17, fresh IN high school. I just kept on keeping on until my position was eliminated 21 years later. When my position was eliminated, I just couldn’t go back to Corporate America. Long story short, I found Reiki through a physical disease of my own. When my medical condition was ‘cured’, I decided there might really be something to this energy stuff.  I remember thinking if I could take away the pain from one person (at the time my thoughts turned to my dad, even though his cancer diagnosis was still years away), then I would consider myself a huge success.

With the help of my intuitive gifts and the energy from Reiki, I’ve been helping heal the hurts (physical, emotional and spiritual) of my clients ever since. I. LOVE. MY. JOB.
