Reiki Therapy

An Introduction to Reiki Therapy,  is an article that Julie wrote for the spring 2017 issue of Nationwide Children’s Hospital’s “Everything Matters in Patient Care”.

Julie is a Reiki practitioner trained at the Master Level, with 16 years of experience facilitating more than 3000 Reiki sessions in both the hospital and community setting.

Reiki Therapy is considered to be very gentle and safe.  It is offered in hospitals around the country, often used in conjunction with traditional healthcare.

Reiki Therapy is facilitated with a light touch, done fully clothed, laying on a massage table or seated in a chair.  The hand placements used during Reiki are over endocrine glands and nerve plexus areas of the body,  inviting a state of deep relaxation.
