RVA is pleased to hold our first Reiki Clinic of 2018! This clinic is an open space where individuals can come for a free Reiki session from a trauma-informed Reiki practitioner.

When: Wednesday, March 14 from 5 – 8:30 pm
Where: The Breathing Room, 1431 W 51st Street

Reiki is a Japanese energy healing modality that can promote relaxation, stress relief, and trauma healing. Practitioners lay or hover their hands over the client’s body in order to promote relaxation and healing. Many survivors of sexual violence have found Reiki to be an important component to their healing journey. Typically after a Reiki session clients report feeling “lighter” as if an emotional burden has been lifted.

You do not have to be an RVA client to attend. We welcome victims and survivors of sexual violence, and their loved ones, to come for a 20-30 minute Reiki session. You will lie on a massage table fully clothed and listen to relaxing music while a practitioner hovers or places their hands on agreed-upon areas of your body. You may feel heat, tingling, or pulsation – this is simply the Reiki energy flowing into your body.
