Anne Bentzen

Anne Bentzen, a Reiki practitioner and energy healer in Westchester, is now an assistant teacher for Jikiden Reiki—the oldest form of the alternative and complementary healing art, which originated in Japan in the 1920s. She will lead an introduction to Jikiden Reiki and a healing circle from 4 to 6 p.m. on October 6, in Larchmont. She will also offer the Shoden Reiki 1 course of Jikiden Reiki as a weekend retreat at the Holmes (NY) Camp and Retreat Center November 15 through 17.
    “Reiki supports the body’s ability to heal naturally, restoring physical, emotional, mental and spiritual well-being,” she says. “Numerous benefits have been documented anecdotally from the use of Reiki to reduce stress, pain, inflammation and anxiety; lower blood pressure; improve immunity; and instill peace and tranquility in recipients. Reiki is an excellent natural, drug-free home therapy for adults, teenagers, young children and even pets.”
    Jikiden Reiki is the oldest form of Reiki being taught directly from the lineage of Dr. Chujiro Hayashi, who was a student of the founder of Reiki, Mikao Usui Sensei, she says. “Jikiden Reiki shares the original hands-on healing teachings, philosophy and spirit of Reiki from Hayashi Sensei. I’m excited to bring Jikiden Reiki to the Westchester area so more people can appreciate the power and simplicity of Reiki in its original form.” 

Cost for introduction/healing circle: $10 donation. For more information, call 914.588.4079 or email [email protected] Retreat registration details at
