Reiki a form of energy healing promoting, healing and overall health
Reiki distinctive in its own right using universal energy along with the bodies own energy to heal one’s mind, body and soul.
Many people who do not understand Reiki or even acknowledge alternative therapies scoff at the idea that something which is not conventional such as drugs or surgery simply can not work. Even among those non-believers a curiosity grows as some conventional treatments cease to work and still have many in pain and discomfort.
Reiki had come to light as a Japanese form of alternative medicine. Then came the 1970’s, this form of healing being adopted by many practitioners in the world. Reiki is comprised of two Japanese words Rei which means Gods wisdom and Ki meaning life’s energy force.
Reiki is a particular type of energy work in which healing is performed by the practitioner, who channels the life force of energy through themselves to the patient. The patient is fully clothed and dependent upon the practitioner’s healing method there is either no touch or very little touch. Practitioner will place their hands in various positions dependent on the area to be healed.
