Patrick Suglia is a certified holistic healer specializing in traditional Usui reiki as taught by Hawayo Takata. An article on Rieki.org cites that among Takata's many philosophies, she was especially fervent about treating more than just the symptoms. "If you treat only the afflicted area of the body," said Takata, "you may alleviate symptoms temporarily but the permanent healing will not take place unless you treat the cause." Suglia not only draws on these teachings, but also on his own health experience to promote natural healing during one-on-one reiki energy sessions. Clients can also solicit Suglia for onsite treatment or distance energy counseling via telephone or Skype.
