Reiki practitioners use a technique through which a “universal energy” is transferred through the palms of the practitioner’ hands to the patient to encourage emotional or physical healing.
What it is not
Not to be confused with massage, as the touch with Reiki is very light. The Practitioner’s hands can also transmit energy while keeping their hands slightly above the body.
Can correct the following
Ease emotional and physical distress and restore harmony to the mind, body and spirit.
The general process
You will be fully clothed, laying on a treatment table or sitting in a chair. The Practitioner will place their hands, with light touch, on your torso or head. Different hand placements and configurations bring in different frequencies of energy from Universal Source. That energy is intentionally directed through the body to provide deep relaxation and bring a sense of peace and well-being. Reiki will pass through and is not impeded by clothing, bandages or supportive braces.
Reiki was a Spiritual practice founded by Usui Mikao in Japan in the early 1900’s. It’s used as an alternative therapy for the treatment of physical, emotional, and mental diseases.
Also Known As
Energy Healing, although any modality that balances or moves energy would be considered Energy Healing.
