HAPPY 2019, EVERYONE!

LINKS:  LIGHT HANDS REIKI STUDIO WEBSITE  Yelp Reviews L.A.  Facebook


I'm Marlan, Reiki Master/Teacher. I began my training and certification with The Los Angeles Reiki Center in 1984 with Joyce J. Morris, the 44th Reiki Master in the true Usui Shiki Ryoho lineage. Throughout my practice, I have witnessed the amazing and humbling effects of Energy Healing ashes, calms and relieves pain at all levels, and I love sharing it with anyone who gives permission. 

I am also a filmmaker, novelist, screenwriter, playwright, journalist, publicist with an eclectic background in many fields including publicity, marketing, and law. My heritage is Russian American. I find the variety of my interests enables me to connect with people who come to the studio for assistance.

What is Reiki?

Reiki is a very specific form of energy healing in which hands are placed just off the body or lightly touching the body.

Dr. Mikao Usui, brought the Reiki method of healing into human awareness in 1922. He began teaching others after a serious earthquake hit Japan and he felt urged to spread his knowledge.


  •  NEW WORKSHOP STARTING
  •  Defend Against Energy Vampires & Narcissists!
    Sundays at 10:30 a.m.  Starting Feb. 10, 2019
    4 Week Series
    $200


    "As an empath, you have special gifts that bring light to the world. Your compassion and empathy are healing salves for the people around you and the planet. You were not put on earth to be the energy source of a vampire. You are here to bring your light to the world." -- Christiane Northrup, M.D., Dodging Energy Vampires Author

    We empaths are susceptible to "Energy Vampires" -- those people who hone in on the "nice" folks who live to help and serve others. You may know them by their more common name: "Narcissists."
    An empath is someone with a heightened sensitivity that enables them to feel what others feel, and a desire to relieve the pain of others.

    We can protect ourselves. This workshop will explore how empaths get hooked by those who would feed off their energy supply and provide exercises and modalties to unhook!

    Free yourself and live your own life!

"Marlan is a gifted healer with a practical approach to Reiki. I appreciate her honesty in all matters when discussing findings following a session. Marlan is genuinely interested in hearing what I'm going through in life and how any blockages may relate. She has been my go-to healer for a few years now and for a number of reasons. Marlan is straightforward yet has a sense of humor. I also studied with her and received my level I Reiki certification. If you're looking for a Reiki healer, look no further. Marlan is the real deal. I feel so blessed having met Marlan. It's as if she helped bring me back to life. Thank you for everything, Marlan!"
                                                                            Carly Lopez, TV Director

"I studied Reiki I and II with Marlan and practiced professionally for 5 years. She was very supportive to me as a student and it's a gift to have had access to her wisdom and experience. It was an invaluable student - teacher relationship. I really appreciate her teaching style, she takes the work very seriously, but still carries a good sense of humor and makes things fun...Finally this year I felt that I should ask her to teach me the Master Level class and she accepted. Almost immediately I was getting interest from potential students and recently called to work with a group of women. I called her and she advised me how to approach it, to take care of myself etc....And it was a beautiful experience! You can't really put a price on the value of her experience with various modalities in energy work, meditation, her creativity and life experience. Thanks Marlan! Honored to have you as a teacher for all of my Reiki training!"
                                 Cindy Bonaparte, Earth Mother Bonaparte Healing Arts

"I'm working with late stage ovarian cancer and have been going through chemo for months. Marlan came to San Diego and give me a series of Reiki healings. Each time, my body sang a renewed tune, more loving and accepting of itself, when she had finished.

"Marlan is an exceptional healer and is worth seeing! She helped clear many blockages in my chakras and her healing has contributed greatly to my well being."--Justin Serulneck, Film Producer

"Marlan is a wonderfully gracious Reiki master & teacher. Come delight in her sensitive, loving ways. As she modestly shares her passion & gift for the Japanese art of Reiki. Thanks, Marlan for your supportive kindness & generosity."

NEW BLOG COMMENT!

View from Light Hands Reiki Studio this A.M. - photo by Marlan Warren, copyright protected

A gentleman named Bernard Schefer posted this Nov. 15th but I only just found it. Sorry, Bernard! Food for thought. It seems to be related to our Women's Self-Empowerment Group:

"Attention to yourself is not desired in any suppressive society. To become the custodian of a healing method is one thing, but to risk your life for it, is truly brave. For this, and many other reasons, these people are the unsung heroes for freedom, self-improvement, and healing methods."

Ilchi Lee


I had to look up Ilchi Lee, and found out via Wikipedia that among other amazing accomplishments, he's the founder of Dahn Yoga, which is gentle energy work related to Reiki and vice versa. 

Thank you for the comment, Bernard! I agree on all the points; with the more thought-provoking, perhaps even controversial being "risk your life for it." I have my own interpretation of how that would fit my life, although I do believe that true growth comes with ease and relaxation. 

Still, I would say that it's not just the risking of life, but also often risking the "social personality" to go against a commonly held belief in our society that healing is something an "authority figure" does TO us. One of my clients is always surprised when I ask her to participate in her healing. "I thought you were just going to fix me!" she said. But she keeps coming back, and I've had the pleasure of watching her changes lead to expansion and even occasional joy.

Many blessings on you, Bernard, and thank you for this thoughtful share.

Hi! I'm Marlan Warren.




I began my training and certification with the Los Angeles Reiki Center in 1984 under the tutelage of Joyce J. Morris, the 44th Reiki Master in the true Usui Shiki Ryoho lineage. Over the past 29 years, I've witnessed the amazing and humbling effects of this Universal Energy as it soothes, calms and relieves pain.

What is Reiki? What is the Light Hands Reiki Studio?

"The only thing wrong with it is the name!" one client said to me recently after a successful session. "Call it 'Calm-Down-and-Feel-Better-Than-You-Ever-Have Energetic Healing.'" 

Reiki is a very specific form of energy healing in which hands are placed just off the body or lightly touching the body. Dr Mikao Usui, a  Japanese seeker of spiritual truths, brought the Reiki method of healing into human awareness in 1922. He is said to have begun teaching others after a serious earthquake hit Japan and he felt urged to spread his knowledge. Located in the heart of Los Angeles, Light Hands Reiki Studio and Institute has become the focal point for Reiki Master/Teacher Marlan Warren's 29 years of Reiki practitioner experience. 

I really enjoyed my first Reiki session with Marlan.  She helped me to feel very at ease about trying Reiki for my first time! Looking forward to sharing more and learning more with Marlan! (Joanna B.)

We are located in the Los Feliz/Hollywood area of Los Angeles.




Marlan is a wonderfully gracious Reiki master & teacher. Come delight in her sensitive, loving ways. As she modestly shares her passion & gift for the Japanese art of Reiki. Her fees are reasonable and her services are of notable value! Thanks Marlan for your supportive kindness & generosity."

There is no licensing for Reiki practitioners in California. If anyone tells you that they are, they are pulling your leg. Unlike massage, there are no licensing requirements for Reiki practitioners in California. Reiki is a form of complementary medicine, which enhances the body's ability to heal itself. Marlan is a Level III Reiki teacher, and not a licensed physician. Reiki is a complement to more traditional western medicine provided by doctors, nurses and hospitals.

RELAX THE ACT



"It's like hitting the 'Reset Button,'" one of my newcomer clients said a couple days ago just 10 minutes into his introductory session, seemingly oblivious to the fact that all hell was breaking loose just outside the studio, as the Loudest Garbage Truck Ever had stopped in front of the studio's windows and was busy making noise that would go on for 15 minutes. 

The Reset Button. I like that.

Relax-the-Act Classes Starting Up for Actors and All Creative Souls




Actors and All Performers:

You know how important relaxation is to your acting, singing, art and career progress. Light Hands Reiki Studio offers “Relax-the-Act” holistic relaxation therapy and classes designed to meet the special needs of performers.

Utilizing the Japanese-Tibetan technique known as “Reiki,” Light Hands Reiki Studio offers special rates for actors and all creative souls from now until the end of April 2013, to encourage you to experience soothing, energy-clearing private sessions.

Private sessions (new performer clients only): $37.00 (reg. $60).

Reiki for Actors classes put you in the Fast Lane for stress management and audition/emotional preparation. Next classes are slated for::

Sunday, March 31, 2013  10 a.m. – 5 p.m. or
Sunday, April 7, 2013        10 a.m. – 5 p.m.

Each class is 6 hours with a 1-hour lunch break. Class fee (a $300 value offered at $200) entitles you to 1 pre-class private Reiki session and free participation in upcoming Reiki Circles.

What is Reiki?

"Rei" (pronounced “Ray”) means "Universal" and "Ki" (pronounced “Kee") means "Energy". The technique of working with Reiki was re-discovered in the last century in Japan by the founder, Mikao Usui. It is believed to be Tibetan in origin. Reiki is life force energy. It flows through a person the way electricity flows through wires.  It is like acupuncture without needles.  The technique is a laying of hands that involves light touch or even no touch.

What can Reiki do?  Reiki can offer relief from such ailments/problems as:

  • Stress/Anxiety (returning an individual to balance)
  • Depression
  • Emotional/Mental Confusion (resulting in clearer and more centered auditions and performances)  As well as offer physical relief of headaches/backaches and other assorted muscle strains

In this class, specifically geared toward the actor, you will learn the background and history of Reiki, the hands-on healing positions for self-treatment and treatment of others. You will receive Reiki attunements to establish yourself as a channel for healing and practice Reiki on yourself and others. No prerequisite required.

All classes taught by Reiki Training Program founder/director, Marlan Warren, Reiki Master. The 6-hour workshop includes one Reiki circle and pre-class private session

Limited number of partial scholarships available for actors, please inquire
