The Reiki and Medicine Intensive is the most in-depth training I offer, a three-day immersion of academic learning and Reiki practice that will help you integrate Reiki practice into conventional health care — both your personal health care and the healthcare industry.
Understanding the difference your personal Reiki practice makes to your health in practical, medical terms is the first step to strengthening your health, improving your health care, and to evolving the current market-driven healthcare industry so that Reiki practice will become available in mainstream health care..
The intensive is appropriate for all Reiki students and practitioners who are interested in improving their health and their ability to make sense of Reiki practice to others — your skeptical family members or your doctors.
Lay practitioners, students, doctors, nurses, and other healthcare professionals have found this class immediately improved their confidence and brought their practice to greater depth, clarity, and professionalism.
Whether you are a Reiki professional or you practice Reiki at home only for yourself, family, friends and pets, your Reiki practice and your healthcare choices will be greatly enhanced by the intensive.

For twenty years, I have been the foremost advocate for Medical Reiki, bridging the gap between timeless spiritual practice and contemporary medicine, and between lay Reiki practitioners and academic medical professionals.
In this intensive, I share what I have learned as a medical Reiki pioneer who has worked in conventional health care since the 1990s, including
- teaching and presenting Reiki in academic medical centers such as Harvard, Yale, the National Institutes of Health (NIH), and Memorial Sloan Kettering
- implementing programs in New York City hospitals, including NY Presbyterian/Columbia and Beth Israel Medical Center
- collaborating on medical research into the effectiveness of Reiki practice
- publishing in peer-reviewed medical journals.
My vision is for Reiki practice to be recognized by the public and by medicine as a viable health-promoting practice for home and professional care.
That will be accomplished by Reiki home practitioners like you becoming confident to speak openly to your doctors about your Reiki practice, and by Reiki professionals who are empowered to educate the public in clear language, and to collaborate effectively in with conventional healthcare professionals, including physicians, nurses, physical therapists, dentists, etc.
After the intensive, you will:
- Understand how Reiki practice fits the conventional medical model.
- Understand why the spiritual aspect of Reiki is valuable in medicine, and how to discuss it.
- Make more informed personal healthcare choices.
- Responsibly guide your clients about how Reiki supports their medical care.
- Present Reiki practice effectively to any audience from a spiritual and physiologic perspective.
- Interface effectively with conventional medical professionals.
