Reiki is a complementary healing practice that originated in Japan in the early 20th century. It is based on the belief that there is a universal energy, or "life force energy," that flows through all living things. Reiki practitioners believe that they can channel this energy to promote healing and balance in the body and mind.
Reiki is typically performed by a practitioner who will place their hands in various positions on or above the person's body, with the goal of channeling energy to the recipient. The person receiving Reiki is usually lying down and fully clothed. Reiki is a non-invasive and gentle practice.
Reiki is believed to promote relaxation, reduce stress, and alleviate pain and discomfort. Some people may feel warmth or tingling sensations during the session, while others may feel nothing at all. Reiki is considered safe and it's used as a complementary therapy to conventional medical treatments.
It is important to note that reiki is not a substitute for medical treatment and should not be used as a substitute for professional medical care or advice. It's important to consult with your physician before trying reiki or any other complementary therapy if you have any health concerns.
