My name is Stas Bekman and I'm a Reiki Master/Teacher and I facilitate Reiki treatments in Vancouver, BC, Canada (in the Commercial Drive area). Remote sessions are available for those who can't make it to where I'm located.
A typical Reiki session lasts about 1 hour. Some people prefer longer sessions of 1.5 to 2 hours.
It's a quiet quality time when you get to take care of yourself, relax and rejuvenate. Some people choose to sleep. It's your choice how you want to be.
When you come for a Reiki session or a Reflexology session you may want to consider wearing loose clothing, so that nothing constricts your body and it'd make it easier for you to relax.
The cost is $70 for 1 hour, $100 for 1.5 hour, $125 for 2 hours. Enjoy $10 off your first visit. I accept cheques and cash (or paypal if prepaid). (If you do body work I could be open for barter as well)
I'm certified in foot reflexology and I do reflexology treatments. Usually a foot reflexology session lasts about one hour.
I also do integration sessions where I combine Reiki work and reflexology.
Please note that I'm not RMT, and therefore MSP/ICBC claims will not work here.
"Stas is a remarkable facilitator for healing. Upon my
first session Stas was open with his expertise, energy,
and made a very comfortable environment. This was the
first time experiencing Reiki healing and I would invite
anyone interested in alternative healing to take on a
session with him. I will definitely be seeing him again
for another treatment!"
"My Reiki exploration with Stas has turned out to be a
very interesting process. The first session went well. I
felt tired afterwards but also felt really good. The
second session went a bit deeper and I felt almost
levitated and had a vibrating feeling in my body. During
the third session it was remarkable. Not only did I feel
the vibration internally, but also shook quite a bit
externally, shaking out what my body didn't need. It was
an amazing experience. It's hard, but exciting, to imagine
what might come next."
"My experience with Stas was wonderful! He was very welcoming and
professional, with a great atmosphere to do his work. His energy is
wonderful, and with a very gentle touch, I could tell he is very
experienced in Reflexology. I felt great afterwards and I could
certainly tell that the session had a detoxifying affect on me for the
days to follow. I will definitely return for more treatments in the
-- Karissa M.
"I had an hour Reiki session and I felt amazing and very
centered afterwards. I definately recommend Stas' treatments
and teachings. I've had a couple of sessions with him and I
feel more and more comfortable with him each time, which
allows for a more open, relaxed and intense session to help
with my every day stresses which cause blockages of energy,
etc. I haven't had a reflexology treatment from him yet, but
we have discussed it and I am excited to see how I feel
after it as well."
I recently came to Stas for a reiki treament and it was such a great healing experience I thought I should share. I was feeling a bit anxious and ungrounded for the last little while but couldnt figure out the reason why as I didnt think I had anything to be anxious about. Before the session started he asked how I was doing and if I had any concerns, etc. I mentioned the feeling of being anxious and he asked if I knew the cause behind it, I didnt really know at the time the cause so told him that. As soon as we started the session Stas asked me to take some deep breaths and to relax, his voice was so soothing and relaxing I soon began to relax and feel very peacefull, the anxieties slipping away. When he started the reiki treatment I could feel all this warm healing energy pulsing down my body, it was quite noticable to me, and I began to feel very grounded, calm and relaxed and just let the energy go where it needed to go. However mid-way through the session, as I was in a deeply relaxed and meditative frame of mind, I had the sudden realization as to the cause of anxiety I had been experiencing, and what I needed to do to work on resolving the issue. I'm pretty sure it was the reiki or the reiki making me so relaxed and calm I was able get behind the layers of anxiety and unsettleness in my mind to figure out the cause. Its been a few weeks since the treatment, and I am feeling much better now. I also wanted to mention that immediately after the session as started to walk on the way to go home, I noticed how bright and full of life everything looked around me. Stas lives on a street with these beautifully huge trees lining the street, so lush and green, and it was amazing how different the scenary looked to me before and after the session. I was so relaxed and grounded I was able to appreciate all the nature around me and take it all in whereas before the treatment, I hadnt really noticed my surroundings. In all a truly amazing treatment, would highly recommend getting a reiki treatment from Stas. "
"Stas has given me reiki many times and each time it has
been a true gift. Afterward I feel relaxed, open, and
peaceful. Also, I often have an increase in energy the next
"I had been going to Reiki for about a year, when my
practitioner took a break from practicing. I did some
research and came across Stas as a practitioner. I have been
to see him numerous times over the last 2 years and find him
to be a great resource and would highly recommend him. He is
wise beyond his years."

If you're unfamiliar with Reiki here is a quick introduction:
If you haven't heard of Reiki, here is what Wikipedia says about it:
"Reiki is a form of spiritual practice, used as a complementary therapy, proposed for the treatment of physical, emotional, and mental diseases. Practitioners use a technique similar to the laying on of hands, which they say will channel "healing energy" (ki). Practitioners state that energy flows through their palms to bring about healing and that the method can be used for self-treatment as well as treatment of others."
While we all need to nurture our bodies with drink, food and exercise in order to stay alive and be well, most people don't realize that there is another source that we all rely on. And that source is energy. Not the calories, but universal energy.
The good news is that the universal energy is in abundance, and it's readily available to all of us. Our bodies feed on that energy to stay alive. The energy comes in via chakras, which you can think of as spinning energy portals. There are seven major and many minor chakras in our body. The chakras are connected to each other via energy ducts. The chakras and energy channels are invisible and the work that they do can't be perceived with normal five senses.
The bad news is that sometimes those chakras and energy channels get clogged, slowing the energy flow or completely stopping it. This usually happens when a person goes through some emotional trauma or bears an amount of unreleased negative feelings.
Normally the body can repair most of the issues it encounters on its own. However when the energy flow is inadequate, it can't cope well with fighting diseases and that's when organs in our body start malfunctioning and sicknesses are developed.
There are many energy healing techniques out there, and they all have one thing in common - they clear up the energy channels and chakras allowing the energy to flow freely, supplying the body with vital ingredients for its self-repair capacity. Reiki is one of these techniques. You can either learn how to administer Reiki by yourself or pay a visit to a Reiki practitioner.
One important thing to remember is: No matter whether you choose a conventional or alternative medicine, while it's possible to ameliorate certain conditions, if the circumstances that created those don't get changed, chances are very high that the illness will strike back.
