Healing Arts Volunteers

Do you have a kind heart? Do you want to ease the suffering of others and improve their quality of life?

Hospice of the Chesapeake is a fully licensed, community-based non-profit organization. We provide services to terminally ill patients at the place that they call home - regardless of their age or ability to pay. In order to provide the best possible service to our patients and their families, Hospice of the Chesapeake depends on the generous support from the community, key business partners, and philanthropic operations to improve the quality of life for those in our community experiencing advanced illness or bereavement.

What is Reiki?

Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing and facilitates sleep. S essions are pleasant and relaxing.

Reiki is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one's "life force energy" is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.

What Kind of Volunteering Would I Do?

As a Healing Arts Volunteer, you will listen to clients and empathise with their health or emotional issues.

Patients are always fully clothed. A session can either be hands-on and you apply a light touch during the session, or hands-off where you keep your hands slightly above the body.

Both already-trained Reiki practitioners who feel ready to provide Reiki to hospice patients and those who are not trained but are interested in learning Reiki are encouraged to inquire.

If you are or wish to become certified and want to bring comfort and happiness to one of our patients, we have the opportunity for you.

Where Will I Volunteer?

We offer inpatient care, as well as outpatient care throughout Prince George's county. We will work with you to find the most convenient locations for you, as well as work around your schedule.
