Volunteer Spotlight: Energy Healing
For the past several years, Nancy Fountaine has been sharing her specialized form of healing with our guests. Energy Healing is a branch of alternative medicine where healers like Nancy uses light touch and sweeping motions with their hands to clear "physical and emotional debris"; energy that often manifests as pain, stress and inflammation. Sessions at Family House usually last up to an hour.
“Volunteering at SECU Family House has been a pure joy,” says Nancy. “The guests who have signed up for energy healing often comment, with surprise, on how good it feels during and after a session. They may enter the Quiet Room feeling anxious, worried, stressed, etc., but when we are finished, they describe themselves as soothed, calmed, and restored.”
All of our volunteers like Nancy are exceptional - always giving of themselves so selflessly. As staff, we recognize that we’re able to do our jobs well because of what they give to our guests every day of the year. And when you or a loved one is going through a serious illness, that moment of calm and restoration goes a long way. We thank Nancy and ALL our volunteers for the positive impact they have on our guests.
