Reiki is an old Japanese technique for stress management and well being. It is a gentle yet specific form of energy healing, in which hands are placed just off the body or lightly touching the body, as in “laying on of hands.”The intention of a reiki treatment is to bring the body, mind and spirit back into balance. It provides relaxation, relieves anxiety, stimulates the immune system, releases toxins or energy blocks and promotes healing.
Reiki is a great tool for stress reduction and relaxation. Many people use Reiki for wellness. Reiki is not a cure for a disease or illness, but it may assist the body in creating an environment to facilitate healing. Reiki is a great tool to use as a complement to traditional medicine and is practiced in many hospitals and medical care settings. It is not affiliated with any religious practice and practiced in every country of the world.
Some examples of conditions that might benefit from Reiki include: headaches, migraines, depression, chronic pain, stress, adrenal fatigue, anxiety and grief. Reiki does not replace Western Medicine or Counseling but is a great complementary modality for a wellness or health program.
