Want To Learn 'Reiki'? There's a Philly School for that

There's a school that has been around for 21 years, but not many people outside of the holistic scene know about it.

The Reiki School & Clinic teaches the Japanese healing art of 'Reiki' - a mind/body relaxation technique that some practitioners liken to meditation or yoga.

FYI Philly's Alicia Vitarelli went to their new location to give it a try! (pictured: Co-Director & Reiki Instructor Vicki Zaharopolous, with Alicia Vitarelli)
