Honoring Hospice Volunteers during National Volunteers Appreciaton Week

April 18th – 24th, 2021

What is Reiki Therapy?

Reiki is a form of alternative medicine called energy healing.  Reiki practitioners use a technique called palm healing (or hands-on-healing) through which universal energy is said to be transferred through the palms of the practitioner to the patient in order to encourage healing.  It does not cure disease or illness, but it is a way to manage symptoms and improve general well-being. 

A reiki session can help ease tension and stress, as well as support the body to facilitate an environment for healing on all levels: physical, mental, and emotional.

During a session, the practitioner places their hands either directly on the patient or above them– stimulating the body’s healing abilities.  The patient may experience sensations in their body such as heat or tingling.  The patient is clothed for the session.

After the session, most patients feel calm and relaxed, some even fall asleep during the session.

We are lucky to have a reiki practitioner as a part of our volunteer team!
