About Us

Mission Statement

The goal of my healing practice is to help you experience relief from daily stressors and physical/emotional symptoms while you simultaneously realize the power you hold with your thoughts and beliefs to influence your reality. Rebalancing your subtle energy body with Reiki and supporting a shift of your conscious awareness will empower you to transform your health and well-being for a future of greater happiness and peace.

We each have an innate ability to heal ourselves. Treating the human energy field is the missing link to healthcare and well-being. Reiki restores harmony to your heart and mind.

​I look forward to meeting you in the near future to help you realize your best self.


-Anne H. Bentzen, founder of Balancing 4 Life

Meet Anne H. Bentzen


Anne has been a dedicated Reiki teacher and practitioner with a private practice in Westchester County New York for over a decade. She founded Balancing 4 Life in 2008.

 Anne has enjoyed providing Reiki sessions for years, offering introductions, educating the public on the benefits of Reiki and teaching Reiki to over one hundred students. Initially trained in the Western Usui and Karuna® Reiki method in the early 2000’s, Anne began learning the Eastern Jikiden Reiki method without any western influence in 2013.

In 2019, Anne became certified as a Shihankaku (assistant) teacher by the chairman of the Jikiden Reiki Institute, Tadao Yamaguchi Sensei. Anne now offers the Jikiden Reiki Shoden (Level 1) seminars for all beginning students. As a teacher, Anne’s goal is to create a Westchester Putnam Jikiden Reiki community by providing Jikiden Reiki programs for students including Reiju-Kai, Koryo-Kai and introductory “Open House” opportunities for the public called Taiken-Kai. Ongoing zoom calls are held regularly to support student practice and enhance their understanding of Japanese culture and the roots of Reiki.

Prior to becoming a Reiki practitioner, Anne’s initial career was as an occupational therapist working in hospitals, rehabilitation centers and schools for 40 years.  Retiring from the Ardsley School District in 2019, Anne now devotes her full time to her healing practice. Wisdom gained from years as an OT, wife, and mother of 2 grown sons, enriches Anne’s ability to offer intuitive insights and compassion with a warm gentle touch and caring voice

Balancing 4 Life focuses on subtle energy transformation through the use of Reiki.  Additional support services include custom flower essences and crystalline grids to enhance your personal or work environment. Anne offers clients her counseling support for personal energy management in conjunction with all Reiki treatments. 

At present, Anne is the only Jikiden Reiki Shihankaku teacher and practitioner in Westchester, Putnam, and Dutchess Counties.
