About Laura's Work in Reiki

(Updated 6/20/16)

Laura Joseph is a metaphysical and holistic health practitioner and teacher. 

Laura is also a Registered Certified Medical Assistant, Shihan Kaku in Jikiden Reiki,  Reiki Master Teacher in the Usui/Tibetan Tradition, artist, and spiritual medium. 

She has over 15 cumulative years in the holistic and allopathic health fields and has incorporated energy medicine in her line of work since 2006.

She currently serves as a volunteer board member for Massachusetts Survivors Outreach and recently spoke at the 2015 Annual Celebration of Reiki Conference as a “Reiki Reaches Out Panelist” discussing her experiences using reiki as a viable treatment option to heal trauma associated with abuse.

In Japanese language, the word Reiki means “universal life energy”, which is the natural, vital healing force found in all life.  Reiki is a Japanese hands-on and distant healing modality and practice that is natural and non-invasive. Reiki balances body, mind, heart, and spirit in a structured way through light, gentle, non-intrusive touch and compassionate intention and regard.
  
The human body was designed to heal itself. Reiki taps into the body's innate abilities.  This form of healing is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. Laura administers the treatments by “laying the hands”.  If one is frequently sick or under a lot of stress, the chances are one's life force energy is low.  Now if the life force is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.
  
Reiki is a very simple & a natural method of spiritual healing & self-improvement that anyone can use to improve their quality of life. This safe alternative is effective in helping many known physical & psychological illnesses & always creates a positive beneficial effect. Reiki does work in conjunction with all other alternative or traditional medical treatments, but not recommended as a
substitute. 
  
Laura is trained in two forms of reiki – Jikiden Reiki and Usui Reiki
  
  1. Jikiden Reiki is the “original” reiki founded by Chiyoko Yamaguchi before it was westernized by Mrs. Takata. This form of reiki is closely aligned with the Reiki Gokai (Precepts) for Health and Happiness authored by Mikao Usui. Its center is the Jikiden Reiki Kenkyukai or Jikiden Reiki Institute in Kyoto, Japan. Sessions are 60min, 90min or 120min each.
  2. Usui Reiki version is a more westernized version of reiki as taught by Mrs. Takata. This version follows her lineage and uses the William Lee Rand’s Manuals for instruction from the International Center For Reiki Training. Sessions are 30min or 60min each.
  
Laura has been recognized as one of the top professionals under the age of 40 by New England Business Bulletin, and she was one of the featured recipients in the article “Sixteen honorees were selected for innovation, leadership, and community service;” by Pamela Berard for the New England Business Bulletin. Laura was also a repeated recipient for the Healthy Living Award given by Healthy Living Magazine for her contributions to the health and wellness communities.

Laura has published many articles on Holistic Health, Spirituality, Reflections from a Spiritual Medium, and Reiki, on sites such as SelfGrowth.com, Blogger, Hubpages, and Take5.com.

Laura is currently studying Jikiden Reiki, which is the "original" form of reiki as taught by Dr. Usui and recently was fortunate to study Shoden and Okuden with Frank "Arjava" Petter Sensei, Vice President of the Jikiden Institute, Koyoto, Japan in Norwalk, CT.
