Neil’s diverse background started with martial arts in 1981. This prompted a life-long study and practice of various martial and healing arts, including Yoga, Tai Chi and Chi Kung. In 1995, he earned the title of Kung Fu Master (8th degree black belt).
Neil was introduced to Reiki just before his son Gabriel underwent a liver transplant at 10½ months old. Seeing how Reiki helped in Gabriel’s healing, he was inspired to learn more and was trained in both traditional and non-traditional Reiki. Neil has been teaching classes (nearly) every month since 1997.
