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 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 the Reiki session you may want to consider wearing loose clothing, as it helps to relax.
The cost is $60/hour. I accept checks and cash (or paypal if prepaid).
Note: I'll be away till beginning of January 2013 studying Yoga in Thailand. If you need to find another Reiki Master/Teacher, please contact Margaret Jang, who was my teacher. And I highly recommend her to you.
"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."
"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."
"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."
I'm certified in foot reflexology and I do 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.

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.
