Mary Laske Bell

PhD

Mary (she/her/hers) brings the creative and holistic health practice of Reiki and Restorative Yoga to Creative Family Wellness.  Mary’s lifelong passion for helping people become and stay healthy has driven both her education and her career paths. She began her Reiki training in 2009, became a Reiki Master Practitioner in 2010, and moved her practice to Nashville, Tennessee later that year to pursue her doctorate. With concentration in social psychology and the relationship between stress and health, Mary earned her PhD in Sociology from Vanderbilt University in 2014. After graduating, she put her degree to practical use as a Studio Manager of Orangetheory Fitness in Hendersonville, Tennessee. A promotion to Director over two studios brought Mary back to the Akron area in 2016. Throughout the last nine years, Reiki has remained an important modality in Mary’s personal and professional practice of healthy living. Reiki helps to balance the energy centers (chakras) in the body, which can in turn improve mood, and overall physical and mental health. Mary believes a practice of centering and rebalancing—such as Reiki—is vital to maintaining good health and happiness. Her client base has included adults, babies, and animals ranging from small house pets such as cats and dogs to large animals such as horses. Mary is especially excited to expand her practice to children and adolescents as she knows both how stressful transitions through the life stages can be at this age and how receptive these age groups are to energy work.
