About

Reiki is a Japanese form of stress reduction and relaxation. It is based on the Asian concept of life energy and is done through laying on hands ( www.reiki.org). As a volunteer Reiki or Therapeutic Touch practitioner you will be asked to provide companionship, active listening, gentile Reiki or TT to patients and families navigating terminal illness. End-of-life TT and Reiki practitioner volunteers are a part of the Seasons Circle of Care who promote comfort, relaxation, help relieve anxiety and pain using meditation and energy medicine. As a TT touch or Reiki volunteer, it is important to remember that an openness to listen to our patients body, mind, soul, spirit is vital in supporting them and their families through a terminal illness.
