Health Lecture:

Introduction to Reiki


Presented by Kay M. Adkins, MPH

Join us on Wednesday, December 19th for an Introduction to Reiki with Kay M. Adkins, MPH. Learn more about this Japanese relaxation technique that promotes healing. The lecture will begin at 6:30 p.m. in The Learning Center (TLC).

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. Based on this principle, a Reiki therapist can channel energy into the patient by means of touch to activate the natural healing processes of the patient's body and restore physical and emotional well-being.

Kay Adkins is a Reiki Master and has a Master's of Public Health from UCLA with an emphasis in Behavioral Science and Health Education. She is the author of Community Reiki: The Reiki Practitioner’s Guide to Healing the World.
