Through such training and client experiences Gustavo has learned to adjust his approach to each client’s individual short-term and long-term goals, whether they are, for example, to improve performance, increase flexibility, reduce pain, or recover from injury.

I highly recommend and trust him!”
Born and raised in England, Edward Ormandy moved to Los Angeles in 2008 and is a certified Advanced Level Reiki Practitioner currently based in the West Hollywood area. In addition to working with some of the leading medical and wellness centers in the Los Angeles area, Edward also works privately with clients both at their homes as well as from his home practice. His goal is to help people through the healing power of Reiki, assisting in their journey to better health and wellbeing. Edward has always had a huge passion for health, fitness and general wellness. His father, who was a Reiki Master, made a positive impact on so many people through Reiki and witnessing this as a young adult was the most inspiring and strongest driving force leading Edward to become a Reiki practitioner himself. When recalling the first Reiki treatment that he received from his father, Edward described, “It was an extremely vibrant, powerful and healing experience. I knew even then that I had found an exceptional gift within myself and wanted to learn more about it. The more I learned about and experienced Reiki healing the more it has become my true passion in life.”
