Reiki For Veterans
Reiki for Veterans is a program established in 2011 at Peace of Me after having read a lot of compelling research involving soldiers who were receiving Reiki along with other alternative therapies at the Fort Bliss Restoration and Resilience Center. Military officials noticed that the soldiers receiving these therapies have lower rates of PTSD and suicide. They expanded their use of Reiki to Walter Reed and Fort Belvoir.
This gratis program provides veterans and active military members a Reiki session each month for at least three months. Three months are not mandatory if you don't feel this therapy resonates with you.
