Most recently Luann organized a Reiki Level One Training for a retirement facility in downtown Washington, D.C.

A research project led by Dr. Mikhail Kogan is evaluating the Effectiveness of Reiki on Quality of Life in Elderly Residents and Staff at Thomas Circle Residences.
A life long student of cognitive processing and the need for relaxation, she brings this awareness to the relaxation training and biofeedback practice of heart rate variability. Luann has pioneered the use of EmWave technology to assess the benefit of Reiki in creating heart-brain coherence.
