The sole reason Catherine Holdsworth even tried reiki therapy eight years ago was that all the massage slots were booked at the spa where she was vacationing. Reiki (pronounced RAY-kee) is a Japanese technique adapted from Tibetan Buddhism that claims to transmit healing energy through the hands. Holdsworth, a certified nurse practitioner and a practicing Roman Catholic, was skeptical. "The first 10 minutes, I thought, 'Oh man, I got ripped off,' " she said. Adherents say reiki taps into a universal life energy that surrounds people.

What it is: A Kimberton store that sells unusual gifts, books and music.

EarthSpeak owners Scott Fort and Susan Lauretano describe their store as "cross-cultural and spiritually minded. " The store was across from the train station in Berwyn until August. The Kimberton store opened in September in a 19th-century blacksmith's building.

As a lifelong (almost 60 years) Philadelphian, the first thing I turn to every day is the obituaries. There's always a chance I'll recognize a name - a former teacher or classmate, former neighbor, local athlete whose career I followed, someone I may have interviewed. . .

The UPS guy has been leaving jeep parts on my doorstep lately, which is causing the Russian Princess, my sturdy mate, to fret. She fears I'm relapsing, that I'm succumbing once again to a bad case of the Willys, my peculiar lust for flat-fender jeeps. So it was timely and fortunate that I happened to visit the Soul Center one recent Sunday evening, where they offer a class called Freedom Yoga for people struggling with cravings and addictions. The Soul Center is in a shopping center on the outskirts of Phoenixville.

William DeMedio pulled off his stethoscope and removed his glasses. The family-medicine doctor bowed his head and closed his eyes. Then he laid his hands on the crown of his patient's head. A few minutes passed. He moved to cup her face, and then crouched to cradle her head in his palms. Fifteen minutes later, the Reiki session was over, and 45-year-old Renee Gaines was almost asleep. DeMedio, who practices at Thomas Jefferson University, picked up his white coat. "I don't wear the coat during Reiki sessions," he says.
