The best way I have found to explain Reiki is to say that it is an energy healing method that is done by placing the hands in a series of positions on or over the body.
Reiki promotes healing by activating the relaxation response and helping the body to balance itself from a very deep level. Reiki allows positive energy to flow into the body through the hands of the practitioner, this balances and heals the energy centres in the body.
Reiki healing compliments existing western medicine perfectly. It's both naturally safe and relaxing, and completely tailored to your needs. Your body will take the energy it needs and direct it to the place where it’s needed the most.
The benefits of Reiki
Reiki is often reported to help clients become more in tune with the best person they were designed to be. That's why so many people who've tried Reiki say it's a great treatment to relax with and 'get your feelings back on track'.
Reiki has been scientifically shown to, decrease pain levels, speed healing and relax the mind and body. Reiki can only do good and can never cause any harm.
