At this time, Hospice of the Chesapeake is seeking dedicated and compassionate volunteers to join our robust Healing Arts Program as Reiki Volunteers in Anne Arundel County. 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. For those volunteers who are not yet trained but are interested in joining our Healing Arts program, we make classes available to prepare our volunteers to provide this relaxing and healing service to our patients at the end-of-life.
Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It 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.
