Brett Hand, the Emerald Wizard

Brett Hand is Big Bear Lake’s Reiki Master and the driving force behind Emerald Energy Healing. Brett is known locally as the “Big Bear Green Man” or “The Emerald Wizard,” for his incredible use of Reiki to heal.

Brett has been an avid martial artist since the early 1990s. One of the things that always resonated with him about the martial arts, was the healing and energy aspects of the different Asian systems.

In mid 2014, Brett experienced Reiki and his life was changed. He felt such a profound connection with what God had planned for him through a very vivid vision, during his first Reiki session. This paved the way to more Reiki sessions with Kimberli Khepri, a specialist in Shamanism, among other things. As a result, Brett went on to seek training in Reiki. Brett became a Reiki Master later that year and has developed a love for natural and holistic healing. Brett’s wife, Lee Ann is an accomplished healer as well. Together they raise three boys in harmony with nature and loving energy.

Since coming to the mountain community of Big Bear Lake California, Brett has pursued his love of energy healing. Brett has created a Free Reiki Clinic at Bear Valley Community Hospital that he has been doing since 2016. Brett also created a children’s program called Emerald Kids Class. In this class Reiki, meditation, yoga, basic martial arts movement, and arts and crafts are part of the curriculum. This class has been adopted by various charter schools as an optional service. Emerald energy Healing has become a staple in the Big Bear Lake area.

About owner: My name is Selia Jimenez and I am the Owner and Operator of Soothing Canna Massage and Wellness Therapy in Big Bear Lake Ca.   I am a California State Certified Massage Therapist, CAMTC #11572, a Member of Associated Bodywork & Massage Professionals and have been practicing massage therapy for over 20 years. My experience as a Massage Therapist have included employment at Glen Ivy Hot Springs, The Viceroy Palm Springs and The Parker Palm Springs.   As a native healer, cannabis is my religious sacrament in which my ancestors have used for thousands of years as a holy anointing oil used to heal.

After a car accident in early 2017, I was left with a lot of pain and endured seizures from the pain medication I was given.  Having experienced the awful side effects of prescription pain medication first hand, I decided to look into alternatives to pain medications.  I was introduced to the benefits of CBD and THC topicals and ointments.  After using these products, I felt almost immediate relief.  With the power of cannabis, regular massages, chiropractic visits, along with PT exercises the pain gradually subsided and I am now pain free.  My goal now is to help as many people I can as a healer using more natural pain relief methods in Big Bear Lake.
