Reiki is a form of alternative therapy commonly referred to as energy healing created by a Japanese Buddhist named Mikao Usui. Based on a simple spiritual principle: We’re all guided by the same invisible life force, and it controls our physical, mental, and emotional well-being.
How it is done:
A quiet setting where you are not disturbed is always desirable. Reiki Practitioners frequently play soft music during the session as a way of masking ambient noise, but let your practitioner know if you prefer silence.
A complete Reiki session is offered to a fully clothed recipient who is lying on a treatment table or sitting comfortably supported in a chair. Most commonly, Reiki is offered through light, non-invasive touch with the practitioner’s hands placed and held on a series of locations on the head and front and back of the torso. The placement of the hands should never be intrusive or inappropriate, nor should there be any pressure.
