Reiki/Energy healing being performed on woman who is relaxing


Reiki

Reiki is a Japanese energy healing technique and a form of complementary therapy. Just as with traditional Chinese medicine, reiki believes that energy can stagnate in the body where there has been physical injury or emotional pain. In time, these energy blocks can cause a variety of symptoms or illnesses to occur.

Reiki's goal is to help the flow of energy and remove blocks, in a similar way to acupuncture. However, rather than using needles, reiki is performed by the practitioner placing their hands directly or slightly above different areas of the body. This practice helps to improve the flow of energy around the body can enable relaxation, relieve pain, speed healing, and reduce other symptoms of illness.

The word “Reiki” means “mysterious atmosphere, miraculous sign.” It comes from the Japanese words “rei,” meaning universal, and “ki,” meaning life energy.
