What is Reiki?

Reiki, a Japanese healing technique, centers on the belief in the body’s innate ability to heal itself. With the intention of restoring the body’s self-healing state, a reiki practitioner channels life force energy to stimulate the cleansing process and alleviate stress.

Reiki sessions typically take place in a tranquil environment with individuals comfortably seated or lying down, fully clothed. The practitioner gently places their hands on or slightly above specific areas of the body, such as the head, limbs, and torso, maintaining these positions for a few minutes. In cases of localized issues, the practitioner may position their hands just above the affected area. Advocates of reiki describe an exchange of energy healing between the practitioner and recipient, often experienced as warmth or tingling in the practitioner’s hands. The practitioner moves their hands to different body parts, holding each position until they sense a decrease in energy flow, indicating the completion of that phase in the session. Reiki treatments offer the potential for transformative energy healing, guided by the skilled hands of a reiki master or practitioner.
