Ann Linda Baldwin, Ph.D., is a professor of physiology at the University of Arizona. She is also a Reiki master and has practiced Reiki on people and animals for the last fifteen years. She obtained her bachelor's degree in physics from University of Bristol, UK, her master's degree in radiation physics from University of London, UK and her Ph.D. in physiology from Imperial College, University of London.
Baldwin's research focuses on the physiological effects of mental and emotional stress, and she is currently exploring the efficacies of Reiki, biofeedback and equine facilitated learning in reducing the damaging effects of stress. She has published over 120 articles in peer-reviewed scientific journals and has been a member of several review panels for the National Institutes of Health. With her Reiki training and extensive scientific background, Baldwin hopes to bridge the gap between energy healing and quantitative scientific inquiry.
