Judy Buchanan is a Certified Medical Reiki Practitioner and Reiki Teacher

Judy Buchanan has attained the level of Karuna Reiki Master through the International Center for Reiki Training (IRCT), the Okuden level of Jikiden Reiki® and Certification in Medical Reiki through Raven Keyes Medical Reiki International. She is a member of the International Center for Reiki Training and Raven Keyes Medical Reiki™ International. Judy has experienced and been a student of complementary therapies for the last decade. She is co-owner, Certified Medical Reiki practitioner and Reiki Teacher at Frederick Natural Health Center in Frederick, MD.

Judy attended Siena College, where she received a Bachelor’s degree in Social Work (BSW) and concurrently joined the Army Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC). After college, Judy was assigned to the U.S. Army as a Medical Service Corps Officer. While serving as an active duty soldier for over 20 years in the Army Medical Department, both in the hospital and on the battlefield, she specialized in medical supply chain management and operations. Judy’s highest level of military education completed is Command and General Staff College (CGSC) and she completed a Master’s in Business Administration (MBA).

Judy is proud to have served our country and loved the life the Army provided. The journey came with much adventure, friendship, and accomplishment as well as many struggles and obstacles. Judy can relate to the stressors working parents, service members, and dual military couples experience while raising a family. Like many other service members, she has been on both sides of deployment: the soldier who deployed and the family member at home taking care of the children while their spouse is away.

Judy continues to serve through community contribution by providing Reiki treatments to cancer patients and staff at the Frederick Memorial Hospital Cancer Center. She also volunteers with Veterans Team Recovery Immersion Process (VETRIIP), a non-profit organization located in Texas that provides veterans with proven and innovative methods such as therapeutic massage, emotional freedom technique, Qigong, Reiki, chiropractic adjustments and acupuncture to relieve post-traumatic stress, chronic pain and related symptoms so they may create healthy, happy and productive lives.

Judy believes that education is a fundamental means of empowering people. She educates our community by teaching Reiki classes, providing public lectures on Reiki and its benefits as well as encouraging others to use many modalities to relax and heal. She supports the Frederick County Library System Adult Education Program, Frederick Chamber of Commerce Wellness at Work Program/ Lecture Series, Frederick Community Hospital Employee Health and Wellness Program, Fort Detrick United States Army Medical Materiel Development Agency’s Stress Free Zone, and Frederick Community College Employee Wellness Fair.

In her spare time Judy aligns her mind, body and spirit through meditation, reading, bike riding, hiking, and spending quality time with family and friends.
