Reiki in Hospitals:
I currently volunteer at St. Charles Cancer Center in Bend, OR. We have an amazing team of Reiki practitioners (massage and acupuncture too!) who provide sessions to cancer patients in the Integrative Therapies Clinic right in the hospital. Learn more here.
I have worked with the Northwest Reiki Association in conjunction with the Northwest Cancer Specialists to provide Reiki to patients receiving chemotherapy. The program is one of many across the country. They are hugely successful and more and more research is developing from then every day.
I have also worked for Inner Balance, a treatment and wellness facility for drug and alcohol recovery. They combine many types of modalities to address the emotional, physical, and chemical aspects of alcoholism and drug dependencies. The clients I worked with truly appreciated and found help with the Reiki I provided weekly as part of their overall wellness plan.
