March 9, 2018 (La Mesa) – The Grossmont Healthcare District’s Dr. William C. Herrick Community Health Care Library in La Mesa will host “Reiki: Healing with Energy,” a free program from 10 to 11 a.m., Wednesday, March 28. The program is part of the library’s “Wellness Wednesday” series, normally held on the fourth Wednesday of the month. Admission is free and RSVP is not necessary. Light refreshments will be served. Handouts will be available. The library is located at 9001 Wakarusa St.
The speaker at the program will be Linda Bounds, a Reiki master, artist and educator who estimates that she has helped thousands of people in need with her Reiki-infused art and environmental energy therapies. She will explain how Reiki can complement your life by tapping into your personal Universal Life Force. She will share the fundamentals of this natural way to create healing environments that can release both physical and emotional blockages.
According to Kathy Quinn, Herrick Library director, “Reiki is a complementary health approach in which practitioners place their hands lightly on or just above a person, with the goal of facilitating the person’s own healing response. It is a Japanese technique for relaxation and stress reduction which is used for pain, anxiety, fatigue, depression, and other conditions.”
