a healing technique based on the principle that the therapist can channel energy into the patient by means of touch, to activate the natural healing processes of the patient's body and restore physical and emotional well-being.
Reiki, in Japanese is composed of two elements—rei, meaning “divine spirit,” and ki, meaning “life energy.” Though not tethered to any religion, reiki is spiritual in nature and built upon the notion that ki flows through everyone. Negative thoughts and physical conditions can disrupt this ki, and it is up to the reiki therapist to facilitate better energy flow throughout the body.
The technique is defined by a practice referred to as “laying on of hands.” The fully clothed patient reclines on a couch or table as the therapist hones in on energy pathways throughout the body. The therapist’s hands then act as conduits of universal life force energy sometimes referred to in different traditions as prana or chi. Reiki Can be performed on or off of the body sometimes as far away as a few feet. People often report a profound feeling of relaxation and calm that washes over the body during these sessions—some drift off to sleep, and others claim to experience out-of-body visions.
