Reiki Used To Help Cancer Patients

Gilda’s Club, which offers support to cancer patients, is now offering services, including Reiki, inside hospitals ?in the?Philadelphia?area, according to this recent story in the Philadelphia Inquirer.

A 60-year-old cancer patient who admits that she has been feeling very depressed is ?featured in the article, as are Reiki practitioners?Diane Strassle and Marcy McGuire.

“As the women moved their hands to places they thought needed energy, [the woman] brightened,” reporter Stacey Burling writes.?”She marveled at the way her body responded to the touch, to the heat of Strassle’s hands.”

“Ya’ll got the warmest hands I ever felt,” [she] said in a strong Georgia accent.
