On January 1st of 2009, the University Medical Center of Tucson contracted the Center for Advanced Energy Therapeutics to source, fund, and manage the CAET Reiki Volunteer Program.
The CAET Reiki practitioners are a group of practitioners whose mission is “to spread the word of Reiki, Vibrational Healing, Energy Medicine and Holistic Health in a mainstream, easy to understand, professional manner”.
The CAET Reiki Volunteer staff provides this complimentary service to the UMC inpatient population, their supportive people and UMC staff. Currently, the Reiki volunteers work on a variety of units throughout the hospital, including Adult Oncology/Blood Marrow Transplant, Adult and Pediatric ICU and Cardiac Transplant. Reiki services will be available to other units as the programs grow.
They provide 10-15 minutes of Reiki to patients that request it by submitting an online Reiki session request form, writing an e-mail to info@HospitalReiki.com, calling the Center’s 24 hour line, or by contacting UMC Volunteer Services.
After-care is also available at the Center for Advanced Energy Therapeutics. The Center offers one complimentary 30-minute Reiki session to UMC patients who have received Reiki during their vist at UMC. Sessions must be received within 30 days of discharge from UMC hospital. Documentation of discharge may required prior to receiving this session. Regular fees shall apply thereafter.
The CAET Reiki Volunteer Program is actively seeking qualified, caring Reiki practitioners to join their professional volunteer staff. Applicants must complete Master-Teacher or Advanced training in the Usui Method of Natural Healing before acceptance into the program. Applicants must also meet the requirements of both University Medical Center Hospital and the CAET Reiki Program.
