Reiki is an ancient healing and self-development therapy that was discovered in Japan in the mid 1800s by Dr. Mikao Usui. This healing method combines Reiki energy with the warmth, reassurance and healing power of human touch. Reiki is usually done by placing the hands in a series of positions over, or slightly above, the body.
Reiki promotes healing by activating the relaxation response and it allows the body to balance itself on a very deep level. Reiki energy fuels the body’s own healing system, allowing it to work more efficiently. Reiki relieves stress and anxiety, improves sleep, relieves pain and discomfort. It eases muscle tension, promotes peace of mind and healing of the body and spirit.
