Reiki is an ancient Japanese practice of energy healing. It is a method of relaxation and stress reduction. When the body is tired or under stress, it is more likely to succumb to illness or disease. By helping the body to relax, Reiki may aid the body’s ability to heal itself. Through the channeling of the Universal Life Force Energy, Reiki may aid in all levels of healing: physical, psychological, emotional and spiritual. Whether you are looking for wellness maintenance or seeking aid in your personal healing process, Reiki can help you.
Reiki does not interfere with traditional medical treatments that you may be receiving. If you choose to use Reiki to aid in the healing process, you should continue to follow your physician's instructions and guidance. Because Reiki is the Universal Life Force Energy, it cannot cause harm however, it may enhance the effectiveness of treatments you currently use. For example, when receiving Reiki treatments, the need for medications may decrease. Let your doctor know when you are receiving Reiki, so he or she can monitor your progress.
