Laura is a holistic health professional, writer, Reiki Master Teacher, Registered Certified Medical Assistant, and Massachusetts Survivors Outreach (MASO) board member and volunteer, who has worked a cumulative in healthcare for over 15 years. As a survivor of abuse, Laura discovered a discord in the healing process within abuse organizations, the legal system, and the healthcare system. Laura realized that, by using complementary therapies such as Reiki, in conjunction with traditional medical care, she finally began to heal. Through her own healing, research, work as a holistic healthcare provider, and volunteer for survivors of abuse, she realized that we have the “cure,” so to speak. Survivors do NOT have to become a statistic in the legal system nor the healthcare system. The need is great and at epidemic levels.
Laura’s goal is to get Reiki practice more accepted as a viable treatment option for survivors of abuse, solicit the appropriate partners for medical research, provide accredited training for holistic health professionals and allied health professionals, and end the cycle of abuse through healing. With properly trained reiki professionals, the results of using reiki as a treatment option for victims of abuse are life changing.
