Her private treatment sessions, which incorporate Reiki, crystals and customized Bach flower essences, are intended to renew the body, mind and spirit by rebalancing life-force energy. They are available on Sundays, by appointment only, beginning at noon, 2 p.m., 3:30 p.m. and 5 p.m. Summer special packages are three for $300 or $125 each.
From 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on consecutive Sundays August 2 and August 9, Bentzen will teach the Level 1 (Shoden) course of Jikiden Reiki, an original form of Reiki without western influence. Students will learn the basics of energy and Reiki history, receive three Reiju to ignite their ability to channel Reiki, and have the opportunity for supervised practice. All of Bentzen’s Jikiden Reiki classes and workshops are limited to four students for social distancing and safety. She thoroughly sanitizes all areas and equipment before and after group activities, and uses disposable materials whenever possible.
A certified Shihankaku teacher for the Jikiden Reiki Institute in Japan, Bentzen says she’s glad to be able to empower more people through Reiki in these challenging times. “The pandemic offers many hidden gifts,” she says. “It has given me the opportunity to bring energy healing and Jikiden Reiki to the community of West Harrison and central Westchester.”
