Reiki is a wonderful and gentle therapy.
The word ‘Reiki’ is a Japanese term meaning ‘guided life force energy’ which refers to the energy that is in everything. The use of Reiki as a therapy can bring our own energy into balance creating a stronger immune system and helping us to stay healthy and heal naturally.
In America some health institutions, including hospitals, regularly offer complementary treatments like Reiki to patients to help them relax and encourage natural healing. It may also help to reduce anxiety and aid sleep.
This is not to say that Reiki should be a substitute for conventional medicine but it is a wonderful and gentle support for the system, whatever you’re dealing with.
