Reiki is a Japanese form of alternative medicine called energy healing. Reiki practitioners use a technique called hands-on healing whereby a "universal life energy" is transferred through the palms of the practitioner to the patient's fully clothed body in order to encourage emotional or physical healing. The energy flows to wherever it is needed in the body, promoting many benefits, such as the following:
Expedites recovery time from surgery
Reduces stress and anxiety
Integrates well with medical treatments
May reduce the need for pain medication
Gives you a profound feeling of well-being and greater inner calm
Anyone can receive Reiki or learn to be a Reiki practitioner. No previous experience or special skills are required to learn this gentle, nurturing energy healing technique.
