Ivor Edmonds, M.H.A.
Taireiki Founder, Reiki Master
Ivor has been a Healing Arts Professional for 15-years. He has extensive experience with both private one-on-one sessions and public classes. Through this journey, he has identified the overwhelming need to bring alternative healing modalities into impoverished communities and to the victims of violent crimes. His philosophical approach towards healing is as follows: “The natural state of human beings is Healed, Whole, and Complete, in harmony with Nature. The process of healing is simply to return us to this state and help us remember who we are. Healing is always possible.”
After completing his B.A. in Religion from Oberlin College, he went on to earn a M.A. in Applied Healing Arts at Maryland University of Integrative Health (formerly Tai Sophia Institute). He has continued his studies of the Arts and is a E-RYT 200 certified Vinyasa Yoga Instructor.
Ivor is a Master of Gendai Reiki Ho and a Level II Usui Reiki Healer. Over the years he has trained and certified many Reiki Practitioners and Masters. He is a Certified Qi Gong Instructor and Kemetic Meditation Instructor who has been healing and teaching since 1999. In his private practice of Reiki Therapy and Qi Gong Therapy he routinely treats patients with high levels of stress, cancer, arthritis, asthma, chronic dis-eases, obesity, and psychological disorders.
In addition, Ivor has taught seminars and corporate wellness programs at Boston Public Schools, Oberlin College, Harvard Divinity School’s Reiki Association (2006), St. Francis House, Action for Boston Community Development, and Boston Medical Center. He is committed to service and since 2004 has worked with gangs, survivors of domestic violence, elders, and homeless people, in addition to the general public, offering alternative healing as a practical means to end stress and recover healthy balanced life.
