The Cancer Caring Center has offered free Reiki treatments to its clients and their caregivers since 2007, supporting healing and reducing stress through this gentle and effective energy therapy.
Here are some of a wide variety of benefits that Cancer Caring Center clients have reported from Reiki treatments:
Reiki treatments are designed to provide a relaxing experience for the recipient. The recipient sits or lies down comfortably, and a trained practitioner conveys Reiki energy (not the practitioner’s energy) by gently resting his or her hands on or just above the body.
Reiki energy passes easily through clothing, and even casts.The recipient’s privacy and comfort are respected and maintained at all times. Treatments last approximately one hour, and the recipient can simply relax – no effort or concentration is required. Many recipients doze off during their treatment.
