Reiki, a form of energy healing that emerged in Japan in the late 19th century, is rooted in the belief that life force energy flows through us all. Reiki practitioners harness this energy to promote healing and balance on physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual levels.
During a Reiki session, the practitioner places their hands lightly on or just above the client’s body, acting as a conduit for the energy. This is believed to stimulate the body’s natural healing processes and restore balance. The experience can be deeply relaxing, often accompanied by sensations of warmth or tingling.
Reiki has been used to manage stress, enhance relaxation, reduce pain, speed healing, and improve overall wellness. Its non-invasive nature makes it a safe complement to traditional treatments. While scientific studies on Reiki are limited, anecdotal evidence and personal testimonials underline its potential for promoting health and well-being.
