Reiki Master Teacher, Co-founder of Inspire Power Advocacy in Motion
Nancy Spatz, MD, Reiki Master Teacher, graduated from Boston University School of Medicine in 1990. Nancy’s training continued at Beth Israel Hospital-Harvard Medical School, where she completed her Psychiatry training in 1994. After having witnessed the ongoing hardships that people experience with medical and emotional illness, Nancy discovered the efficacy of Reiki practice. Nancy realized that by utilizing Reiki meditation practices people could develop their own mind-body connection to reach for wellness. Teaching others Reiki meditation to address their health conditions allowed them to feel their inner strength and wholeness, even if not cured. Nancy found that the combination of her medical knowledge and Reiki practice helped people calm the mind, settle the body, and heal. Nancy’s care for others became the impetus to get the word out so all of us can experience the benefits of Reiki self-practice.
Nancy has been involved in advocacy work for children for several decades. Early in her training, Nancy realized that childhood experiences shape children’s ability to cope and advocate for themselves. After working with abused children, Nancy noticed how vulnerable and exposed children can be when they’ve suffered adverse childhood experiences. Nancy understood that for the children to feel safe and empowered, the adults around them must model stability and calm by practicing Reiki mind-body skills.
Dr. Spatz is the co-founder of Inspire Power Advocacy in Motion, a unique program which blends breathwork, meditation, Reiki practice, and martial arts for the purpose of cultivating self-awareness, strength and self-advocacy. Inspire Power classes and workshops introduce skills and practices for participants to build resilience and overall wellbeing. The goal of all Inspire Power classes is to increase awareness and focus, cultivate self-advocacy and autonomy, and develop strength and endurance. Dr. Spatz runs Inspire Power Workshops at Health Centers and Helix Martial Arts Academy. Nancy Spatz also provides Reiki treatments to individuals with medical illnesses in hospitals, in homes, and in her Reiki treatment studio. Nancy is generous with the Reiki teachings and practices, coaching Reiki recipients to practice hara breathing, contemplate the 5 Reiki Precepts, practice Joshin Kokyu-ho, and practice hands-on-healing to care for themselves.
Nancy Spatz is the co-author, along with Elise Brenner, PhD, of the 2022 book, Reiki: “Reiki: A Self-Practice to Live in Peace with Self and Others”, published by John Hunt Books.
