Introduction: I am a licensed, insured Registered Nurse in private practice. As a former critical care nurse, in 1998 I serendipitously came to 'Integrative Healthcare' by learning about Reiki at a nursing educational conference. This led to my first reiki session, and the trajectory of my nursing career changed. My first Reiki session was so profoundly and deeply relaxing, I asked, "why aren't we offering this in healthcare?" The 'seed was planted.' I have spent the past 22 years helping bring reiki and other integrative therapies (hypnosis, breath work, meditation, guided imagery) into mainstream healthcare. The ultimate goal: offering customers empowering education, tools and support for 'self-care' and 'self-healing.' I have offered reiki sessions, lectured, taught, have been part of, initiated and/or coordinated reiki programs as a consulting nurse at numerous hospitals and healthcare settings on the North Shore and Boston area, including Mass General, Tufts Medical Center and North Shore Medical Center Cancer Centers, Addison Gilbert Hospital (Gloucester MA), Northeast Healthcare/Lahey Danvers Pain Management, and numerous extended care facilities and senior centers north of Boston and on Cape Ann. I began teaching Western Usui Reiki Ryoho in 2000 privately, and at the North Shore Medical Center. First, as an apprentice with my first teacher. Ten years into my practice, I met Hyakuten Inamoto, a Buddhist monk from Kyoto, Founder of the Komyo Reiki System. Drawn to the simplicity yet 'depth' of his style, I have taken his teacher training 12 times, hosted Sensei twice in Boston, and traveled to Japan to learn more. I teach all levels of Komyo ReikiDo - 'the Way' of Reiki, emphasizing 'daily' practice, for self-care and spiritual development. My first experience with hypnosis was as a teenager. I found the experience interesting, fun and very relaxing. In my 20's, I began working with hypnosis with a goal of stopping smoking. I finally succeeded in 1997 after 22 years of smoking. A combination of conventional tobacco treatment self-reiki, self-hypnosis, and meditation helped me finally STOP. These self-care tools have also allowed me to 'remain' smoke-FREE for over 24 years, as well as move beyond some personal fears and health issues. So helpful were these integrative therapies, that when my professional nursing practice moved into a more holistic approach to healthcare, these were the tools I sought to train in to integrate into my nursing practice. I not only offer these services, but also teach these tools to clients and patients for the purpose of promoting self-care, self-healing, and empowering them to relax, heal, make positive, healthy changes and attain healthy positive goals. Allowing them to live happier, healthier lives. Offering trainings in self-hypnosis, self-reiki, and a Professional 200-hour Reiki Training. Private sessions are offered with 'care and compassion;' hypnosis, reiki and meditation, with a focus on optimal health and happiness. Home, hospital and hospice sessions available. Lectures and workshops on a variety of healthcare and integrative nursing topics are available, some as continuing education for case managers, nurses and social workers. Reiki Trainings offered in Boston and Peabody MA, Sedona AZ and 'on-site,' nationally and internationally. (Minimum # of students). My success comes from your success, for which I am most grateful. My greatest JOY is hearing the success of my clients and patients, whether simply "feeling better," regaining health, or attaining a life-long goal.

Karen was there to assist me after my breast cancer diagnosis & mastectomy. As a respected professional Registered Nurse, Karen has a wide scientific knowledge base and is always current with evidence based practices. In addition, Karen is kind, caring, personable & provided much valued emotional support during my time of need. As a Reiki Master, Karen combines a nursing advanced level of practice along with the integrative medicine practice of energy healing. After sessions with Karen, I felt more relaxed & better able to tackle my emotional & physical healing. Karen even provided me with a personalized relaxation tape. I wholeheartedly recommend Karen as a Reiki practitioner!

Thank you for your kind words Cynthia! Great fun meeting and working with you! My greatest JOY has always been hearing/seeing my client's successes. It has been said that 'all hypnosis is self-hypnosis.' You were a wonderful 'student' in learning and practicing self-hypnosis. Congratulations on your continued successes! Happy, healthy 2021!

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    After your weekend training, follow-up meetings, ongoing mentoring and support are offered. Early registration discounts and payment plans are available, for those in need. Students may 're-take' classes, at greatly discounted prices for added learning and increased confidence. "Always learning ..." 'Mastery' comes with continued practice and learning.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Often, we begin with an email or phone conversation, discussing your needs and goals. Free phone consultations are offered. Questions are encouraged, at any point in the process. References are supplied, upon request.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have been working in healthcare since 1977 and became a registered nurse with a bachelor's in science of nursing (BSN) degree in 1983. Prior to working in Integrative healthcare, I worked 15 years in critical care nursing, in a variety of adult intensive care units (cardiac, medical, surgical, neurological, and trauma). Additional work in cardiac rehabilitation and training in behavior modification, tobacco treatment and hypnotherapy shifted my personal and professional focus from 'disease and illnesses' to 'prevention and wellness.'
