Light Hands Reiki Studio Celebrates Re-Opening with Low-Cost Clinic
"Reiki is simply a non-invasive, gentle way to help people balance themselves, using Divine Energy that is available to all of us anytime," explained Marlan. "It is amazingly effective in helping people manage pain and stress."
Marlan began her study of the Japanese healing modality (there is some speculation that it originated in Tibet) in 1984 at the now-closed Los Angeles Reiki Center with the late Joyce Morris, the 44th Reiki Master in the Usui Shiki Ryoho lineage (original Japanese branch).
"My then-husband arranged for us to receive Reiki training in exchange for a promotional video that Joyce Morris wanted for the center," Marlan recalled. "I was chronically ill at the time and trying every alternative healing path that I could find."
Although Marlan acknowledges that Reiki was only one aspect of her healing process, it was "the one modality that stuck because I could give it to others, and their progress gives me extreme pleasure."
What exactly is a Chair Reiki session?
"It's not that different from a Table Reiki session," said Marlan. "Receivers leave their clothes on and just relax while the Practitioner sends energy to specific points on the body to balance internal energies. I maintain healthy boundaries and ethics throughout a session--never touching private parts."
In the 30+ years that Marlan has been practicing Reiki, teaching all levels for certification and hosting share groups, what is the biggest change she's observed?
"In 1984, Reiki was being traditionally taught, and Reiki Master/Teacher training was elitist in the sense that it required thousands of dollars," Marlan said. "The higher level training was shrouded in secrecy. And I believe this stunted the potential growth of this modality for a while until some practitioners came forward to lift the veil and make it more accessible for more people."
Sessions this weekend are by appointment only.
