Reiki originates from Japan, and is a technique for stress reduction, relaxation and a chance to let the body and mind escape the stresses of day to day life. It can also promote healing.
Unlike sports massage or Swedish massage, the Reiki practitioner lays their hands to points on the body, and this allows life force energy to flow through, to the client. Reiki is a holistic treatment in that it treats the whole person, including body, mind, emotions and spirit.
A Reiki treatment feels different for different people, but many comment that it feels like a warm blanket enveloping them, or that a glowing radiance is flowing through their body. It is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing that anyone and everyone can use. It can be used alongside all other medical or therapeutic techniques, and has been used to relieve side effects and promote healing and recovery.
