About me

Carl van Vuuren

ithi

My introduction into natural and holistic therapies took place in 2003 when I was living and working in London. In much need of healing myself I tried Reiki. My response to it was astounding and inspired me to study Reiki and share it with others.


I then proceeded to study Karuna-ki Reiki, Pranic Healing, Shiatsu and other practices. In 2010 I was doing Atma Kriya yoga and Arhatic yoga when I met Sri Swami Vishwananda and received the blessing to practice as OM healing facilitator.


I feel blessed to have had experiences that have shifted my outlook on life and my greatest joy is observing the change in my subjects through treatment.
