Reiki Volunteer Program

At HackensackUMC Mountainside, Reiki is used as a complementary therapy to conventional medical treatments. Reiki is not a religion, creed, or substitute for conventional medical care. Reiki is a simple method of natural healing, intended to provide a calming experience which invokes the relaxation response. 

Private Reiki treatments are available for patients and caregivers of the Cancer Center at HackensackUMC Mountainside. For more information or to schedule a free session, please contact, Lynn Eisenbrand, MSW, LCSW (973-429-6098).
