Lancaster Community Reiki Clinic Gives Back

Every month since November 2013, the Lancaster community has received the gift of Reiki through the Lancaster Community Reiki Clinic. The clinic operates on the third Thursday of each month, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., at the office of Loeffler & Pitt Dental Associates, who generously donate use of their space. The 25-minute sessions—with two practitioners providing Reiki for each client—must be scheduled in advance, and monetary donations are accepted.

The clinic was created by Helene Williams, RN, a Reiki practitioner and teacher. Williams’ vision of providing community Reiki services grew out of her desire to introduce people to the healing and balancing effects of Reiki at a reduced cost. The 25 local, dedicated practitioners Williams recruited volunteer their time and skills each month. Since the clinic’s inception, over 100 clients have received the benefits of Reiki. 

Reiki, developed in Japan, is a gentle hands-on energy healing system used for stress reduction, relaxation, and balancing of mind, body and spirit. This safe, holistic technique enhances the body’s natural ability to heal.

Money collected is used for supplies, advertising and services required to obtain nonprofit status for the clinic. Thirty percent of each month’s donations are given to local charities chosen by the clinic’s practitioners. To date, $1,000 has been given to 22 different charities.

Location: Loeffler & Pitt Dental Associates, 2131 Oregon Pike, Lancaster. For more information, call 717-269-6084, email ReikiHelene@gmail.com or visit LancasterCommunityReikiClinic.com.
