Complimentary Compassionate Care Reiki
for People in Treatment for Cancer
Usui Shiki Ryoho is the Japanese healing practice of gentle non-
invasive laying on of hands healing. It originated from the self-
healing experience of Mikao Usui in the early part of the 20th
century. Usui Shiki Ryoho has commonly become known as
Reiki. The translation of Reiki from the Japanese is Universal
(Rei) Life Force (Ki).
 Ki is the Japanese word for Qi in Chinese.  
A better definition of  Ki/Qi is "energy on the verge of
becoming mass".   
Reiki assists in bringing the body-mind-spirit into balance.
Reiki is non-medical.  It is non-invasive and cannot cause harm,
but it can assist in healing and has in recent modern medicine
been recommended before and after surgery.  Some people
who have received Reiki who are in treatment for cancer have
reported less nausea, more energy and better sleep.  All these
improvements help reduce stress.  The less stress we have the
better our chances may be for healing.  

Reiki is not offered as a treatment for cancer, but it may help
people in treatment for cancer feel better in the ways
mentioned here. It is the person's own inner wisdom that
directs the Reiki as needed.  The practitioner is simply a conduit
for this powerful energetic force called Reiki.
If you are in treatment for cancer and would like to see if Reiki
may benefit you in reducing some of the side effects of
treatment, please call Gloria Provitola at 917-502-4566.  She is
