Reiki is a Japanese energy healing technique that can be done in person or from a distance. It treats the whole person, working to restore balance to the overall system including the physical body, mind, spirit, and emotions. As humans we take in a lot on a daily basis - from the air that we breathe and the food that fuels us, the emotions, words and messages from those we surround ourselves with, to our own mental thoughts and anxieties. All of these things can place stress on the body and it manifests in various ways such as physical pain and mental or emotional un-wellness.
A 2007 survey shows that, in the United States, 1.2 million adults tried Reiki or a similar therapy at least once in the previous year. Over 60 hospitals are believed to offer Reiki services to patients. - Medical News Today
The healing that Reiki assists in is actually self-healing. The practitioner is not the healer – YOU are. My job as the practitioner is to help you clear out energy blockages, help to focus the energy in the places your body, mind, spirit need it the most, and in doing so you feel better and able to tackle whatever it is that you need at the time.
