SYRIAN LEBANESE HOSPITAL
According to Wikipedia, the Syrian-Lebanese Hospital is one of the most important hospitals in Brazil and South America. It was founded by the large Syrian and Lebanese community of Sao Paulo in 1921. It is one of the most well-known health facilities in Brazil due to the high quality of care.
Reiki Therapy is included in the Integrative Care Program that this Hospital has to offer, (among Acupuncture, Yoga, and others). They refer to Reiki as a global treatment that works on all human dimensions (physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual), contributing towards well-being and quality of life, lacking any side effects.
This facility was founded in 1938, and it was the first governmental hospital in Brazil at the time. The Volunteer Association of the Hospital Complex of Mandaqui organizes and provides alternative therapies such as Reiki and chromotherapy. The volunteers started treating patients with morbid obesity, hepatitis, and ostomized people, and it’s now expanding to other medical areas.
