Meet Alan White - Director 

Alan has a background of over twenty-five years in nutrition, complementary medicine, Reiki and counselling.

What do you bring to Reiki Australia?
He has connections across public, private, and ex-service organisations which allows him to promote the benefits of Reiki and of learning Reiki for individuals. Alan works alongside the project team to promote the use of Reiki in hospitals, retirement homes, aged care facilities and nursing homes, as well as with current and ex-service personnel and their families.

Why did you get involved with Reiki Australia?
Alan joined to further its objectives: being the promotion of Reiki Australia as a professional body, by fully supporting Reiki practitioners and focusing on the use of Reiki in the wider community. Encouraging members to become involved in taking Reiki into their communities, and encouraging practitioners to use Reiki regularly on themselves to demonstrate how good one can look and feel with Reiki.

He would like to see Reiki become more readily accessible within all hospitals, not only for patients and carers, but also for the staff. Alan brings a flexible, open mind and an inclusive approach when dealing with others and strongly believes in being proactive when looking at the challenges that lie ahead in the healthcare world.

An Air Force Vietnam Veteran, Alan and has been involved with the Department of Veterans’ Affairs as a volunteer Men’s Health Peer Educator for 20 years and was a National Men’s Health Ambassador (volunteer) with the Prostate Cancer Foundation Australia
for five years.

Alan is currently the group leader for the Bayside-Kingston Prostate Cancer Support Group. He is a prostate cancer survivor/thriver, having had his prostate surgically removed following ten years of active surveillance. Alan has since published a book on his and his wife’s experience around this event called
We’ve Lost My Prostate, Mate! … And life goes on”.

Fun Fact:   Alan has 30 genuine Hawaiian shirts and a few Mambo shirts as well.
