For the Peacemakers & the Peace Bringers

Our Nation asks much of our service members. With gratitude, I provide veterans and military personnel free Reiki services. Call today to schedule your Reiki session.


Please Note: Reiki, like contemplative meditation, and other complementary therapies, is not meant to be a substitute for professional medical and psychological care. Please consider Reiki as a part of your well rounded self-care program. 

“…warriors are peacemakers and peace bringers,"

~ Edward Tick, PH.D,

From "Return of the Ghost Dancer: Healing the Soul Wound of War",

Light Consciousness, Spring 2011

Department of Defense’s

Institute of Integrative Health and Healing at Fort Bliss

The US military is using Reiki along with other holistic alternative and complementary therapies such as massage, acupuncture, meditation, qi gong and yoga for the treatment of PTSD. The Fort Bliss program was founded by Dr. John Fortunato. On July13, 2008, Army Chief of Staff, George Casey publicly announced that the Fort Bliss PTSD program should be replicated.


In 2011, Dr. Sara Gilliam lauded the R&R Center as a PTSD researcher’s dream. The six-month program is unique in that it utilizes complementary alternative medicine modalities in addition to standard therapy. The CAM modalities include reiki, acupuncture, massage therapy, biofeedback, neuro-feedback, movement therapy, meditation and art therapy.


Warrior Combat Stress Reset Program

Darnall Army Medical Center Fort Hood

The Warrior Combat Stress Reset Program at Darnall Army Medical Center, Fort Hood, Texas is committed to providing initial emotional relief for many returning soldiers to prepare them for full recovery. Along with group and individual therapy, exercise, coping skills, self-regulation and biofeedback, the program includes Reiki, massage, acupuncture and yoga. COL C. J. Diebold, chief of psychiatry at Tripler Army Medical Center, Hawaii, and psychiatry consultant to The Surgeon General of the Army announced, "I visited Fort Hood recently and was very impressed by the program there. They have started looking at certain symptoms of PTSD, and using alternative therapies."

"Innovative approaches include the Restoration and Resilience Center at William Beaumont Army Medical Center, Fort Bliss, Texas; and the Warrior Combat Stress Reset Program at Darnall Army Medical Center, Fort Hood, Texas.

Beaumont's R&R Center uses techniques such as group counseling, biofeedback and Reiki (and) massage to help Soldiers deal with post-traumatic stress disorder. It has graduated 80 Soldiers, with 64 percent being classified fit for duty."

From the May 2009 Mercury, an Army Medical Department publication

I encourage service members who want to continue serving and those who have come home, to consider adding Reiki to their self care program.

Ilona Meagher, author, 2008 Illinois Journalist of the Year and devoted advocate for veterans has testified before Congress about the heartbreaking reality of PTSD. She continues to raise awareness about suicide among military personnel returning from Iraq and Afghanistan. She has also provided interesting information regarding Reiki and the use of Reiki for soldiers & their loved ones.

Before proceeding, please take the time to read the disclaimer on the website disclaimer page.


If you have concerns or questions regarding the use of Reiki for Christians, we suggest that you read Alice Mindrum's book, "Reiki & Christian Healing." Mindrum is an Episcopal priest and Reiki master teacher. "The Holy Spirit and the Spirit of Reiki: One Source, One Spirit," by Ruth Allen, PhD. I also recommend the Reiki for Christians website.
