Reiki

Monday, December 5, 2016
Instructor: Kathy Lorenzato
Time: 12:00-2:00 pm
Location: FSSB 2030

Are you tired and need more energy?  Are you high-strung or anxious and looking for ways to relax?  Are you dealing with pain issues?  Have you noticed the Reiki classes being offered through the Center for the Professional Practice of Nursing and wondered what is Reiki anyway?

Reiki is considered “energy work,” as opposed to massage, which is “body work.”  It helps the recipient increase his/her natural energy to enhance relaxation, and promote the healing process.  Reiki has been used in the UCD Children’s Hospital for the past 16 years to help children and their family members deal with pain, reduce stress, and increase their ability to cope with illness/injury and the rigors of hospitalization.
