We are so excited to be featuring one of weSPARK’s reiki practitioners Brian Kukan on our blog! Brian recently led a self-reiki session on weSPARK’s weekly live stream via our Facebook page. Our weekly live videos allow our guests and followers to take advantage of the services we offer in the comfort of their own homes. In this video, Brian teaches you how to practice reiki on yourself while guiding your movements to assure you place positive energy on the parts of your body that need it the most. You can view the video below or visit our YouTube Channel to view!

Reiki is a practice that balances your body, mind, spirit and emotions. This practice has multiple health benefits. It can help relieve stress, reduce pain, increase energy, stabilize thoughts and emotions and create inner harmony. These individual reiki sessions are available for free at weSPARK Cancer Support Center for cancer patients, survivors and their loved ones. Are you interested in becoming a guest? Please contact us today to schedule your intake appointment! Remember to take a look at our monthly program schedule to register and sign up for programs.

What is your role at weSPARK Cancer Support Center?

I provide individual reiki treatments for guests and facilitate the group reiki circles. What have you learned through your work with cancer patients, survivors and their loved ones? One thing that I’ve learned is the importance of finding balance in life and how that comes into play during and after cancer treatment. I see weSPARK guests finding the balance between receiving the support of others, and giving back by providing support to those in need.

What inspired you to become a reiki practitioner?

As embarrassing as it is to admit it, at first I thought reiki would make me “cool” and a more interesting person. As soon as I started practicing reiki though, I recognized it as a powerful way to improve the quality of life for myself and others.

How do you practice self-care?

The foundation of my self-care begins with my morning routine. When I wake up, I give myself reiki for 10 minutes before I get out of bed, and then after making the bed I drink 12 ounces of water mixed with either fresh squeezed lemon juice or apple cider vinegar to flush and alkalize my body. Following that, I meditate for 20 minutes and write in my Morning Pages or The Five Minute Journal. The routine takes about 60-90 minutes and prepares me to handle anything that comes up during the day.

What is one thing about you that we may not know?

I play bass guitar for various groups around Los Angeles.
