man getting Reiki therapy Reiki is an alternative therapy used to reduce stress and promote relaxation and healing. The idea behind Reiki is that unseen life force energy flows through the body, and when it is low, we are more likely to fall ill. In contrast, when our life energy is high, we are happy and healthy. Similar to acupuncture, Reiki promotes the flow of this life force throughout the body. Practitioners believe that energy can become stagnant in the body where physical injury or emotional pain occurred.

During a Reiki session, the patient sits in a chair or lies down in a peaceful setting that sometimes includes music, depending on the patient’s preference. Practitioners then lightly place their hands on the patient over specific areas such as the limbs, torso, and head for 2 to 5 minutes. During this, the transfer of energy takes place, and each hand position is held until the practitioner senses the energy has stopped flowing. Healing wands and crystals may also be incorporated into the Reiki session because they are believed to protect one from negative energy.

There are several techniques involved in Reiki, including:

  • Centering
  • Clearing
  • Beaming
  • Infusing
  • Extracting Harmful Energies
