Seniors at La Mesa health care library will discuss Reiki natural healing

June 17, 2024 – Our town took a magical trip down memory lane today. The Model T Ford Club of America rolled into town for their 2024 National Tour. 

Dozens of these magnificent Model T’s lined our streets. It felt like stepping back in time.

The visitors took a stroll through our town’s rich history, from the old Lakeside Inn, the Auto Speedway route, made famous by racing legend Barney Oldfield, to our charming historic buildings and homes.

The Lakeside Historical Society opened their doors, welcoming everyone to explore the chapel, museum, Gift Shop, and the Speedway monument. It was a little slice of the past brought back to life.

Their visit was short, but the memories will last a lifetime. A huge thank you to the Model T Ford Club of America for stopping by and making the day in our hometown so special.

The Grossmont Healthcare District’s Dr. William C. Herrick Community Health Care Library, 9001 Wakarusa St. in La Mesa, will host a free senior discussion group on “Reiki: How It Can Help You” from 10 to 11 a.m. on Wednesday, March 27. The public is invited to attend, and RSVP is not required. The speaker will be Lucy Olivier, a master teacher and practitioner in Usui Reiki and Karuna Reiki natural healing systems since 1998.
The word Reiki comes from two Japanese words, Rei, meaning higher knowledge or spiritual consciousness, and Ki, meaning life force energy. Reiki is a Japanese technique for relaxation and stress reduction that also promotes healing by using touch. Reiki supporters believe that a warm and soothing energy flows from the practitioner’s hands into the recipient, promoting relaxation and releasing tension. Hospitals, hospices, nurses, and caretakers use Reiki treatments to help their patients, according to Herrick Library officials. For more information, phone the library at (619) 825 5010 or visit
