Joann used Reiki extensively during her career as a Deputy Matron and later as a nursing sister in a oncology ward. She brings to the school a wealth of knowledge of the application of Reiki to the sick and dying. She shares this knowledge with her students and welcomes the student into the beginning of their own healing process. Joann has filled the need for quality courses in Reiki and standards which equips her students with sound knowledge and the support needed to become a competent Reiki practitioner. Joann has National recognized training qualifications certificate 1V , and has lectured extensively throughout community colleges in Sydney  and  south coast  which  she  continues   to   do  on  a  weekly   basis . She is  registered  to  practice  nursing  in  NSW, and is also a cosmetic nurse injector with a diploma in beauty, hypnosis and councelling. The   school   during  the   week   runs   a   clinic   which  is  open  to   the  public.

Joann offers her students a  personal training , and has worked teaching people with learning difficulties, and those who have limiting disabilities and chronic illness to administer Reiki to  themselves.

The school can also come to you if your needs are that you cannot make the location where the course is running. Or if you wish to be taught one on one this can be arranged also. Joann has dedicated her life to assisting people to learn Reiki and increase their skills in this wonderful self help technique, so if one  or many it  is not a problem for her.
