About Us

Franz and Deb own and operate the Reiki Center. Both are Usui/Tibetan Reiki Ryoho Masters/Teachers and Practitioner and Deb is an Karuna Reiki Master/Teacher and Practitioner.

Franz is a Licensed Massage Therapist and continues to add modalities to best serve our community.

Deborah is a Certified Natural Health Practitioner and completed her studies as a Doctor of Naturopathy through Trinity College of Natural Health.

They are members of the Blair County Chamber of Commerce and are eager to serve our community.

They are Professional Members of the International Center for Reiki Training and are an approved site to offer the educational program designed and implemented by Reiki Rays of Hope for Caregivers, Inc.

In 2011, Reiki Center opened its doors at 1301 Allegheny St, Suite 112. Opportunities occurred within the next two years, and the Center grew to its current location: 1301 Allegheny Street, Suite 101, Hollidaysburg, PA in Blair County, Pennsylvania. The Center serves the surrounding areas including Cambria, Bedford, Huntingdon, Somerset and Centre.

The Centers connection with various organizations include the following: ICRT (International Center for Reiki Training), American Holistic Medicine Association, Blair County Chamber of Commerce and Hollidaysburg Business Partnership. Deb is also a member of the National Association of Professional Women. She was awarded “VIP-Woman of the Year” 2013-2014.

They chose the affiliation with the ICRT because of the research of the benefits of Reiki within the medical community, The Touchstone Process. The founder, William Lee Rand, is inspirational and uplifting; and his journey has given much to others. Many articles on this site are and will continue to be published from the ICRT as studies are completed. The published articles are approved by the ICRT for our site.

The Center also set a milestone as the Center became an approved site to offer the program established by Reiki Rays of Hope for Caregivers, Inc. – Mentor Ohio. This program EMPOWERS the caregiver by offering Reiki for Caregivers as specific curriculum paying close attention to the needs of the caregiver and those in their care. The caregiver group includes those professional caregivers such as doctors, nurses, home health professionals, etc. We look to the caregiver agencies to present a short presentation that will give clear identification of the vast areas in which Reiki shows significant benefits.

University Hospital has embraced the program and Reiki sessions were given to hospital staff. Reiki classes were given to the hospital staff; the public is also welcomed. In October of 2012, Reiki Rays of Hope began sessions for pre-op, post-op and rehab for Orthopedic surgical patients. Currently, approved training sites include Florida, Illinois, New Jersey and Pennsylvania, Our Center. With such positive results from the surgical project, University Hospital has expanded the services to the Oncology Wing.

Our community will embrace the program, I am sure!
