Phyllis Chappelear is a fifth generation Usui Reiki Practitioner. She has practiced Reiki on both humans and animals for over twenty years and recently obtained her Usui Master Teacher Certification. She was an avid equestrian for over forty years and applied her Reiki training to her horses as well as many other animal species including reptiles. Being the mother of an Afghanistan vet, she is familiar with some of the hardships veterans and their families face. Because of this, she is looking forward to serving as a volunteer and “giving back” to the veterans at the Myrtle Beach Clinic.
