Join us for a brief study of Reiki as it was first introduced and as it is today.
The presentation will answer the following questions: What is Reiki? Where did it
come from? Who uses Reiki? Is there scientific evidence that supports the existence
of life force energy? Are there case studies that support the use of Reiki in a medical
setting? Are there medical institutions that use Reiki?
