Reiki- (Ray-Key) is a Japanese healing modality which means “life force energy.”
It is a technique that practitioners use to help the body’s systems (physical, energetic, emotional, spiritual) to release any blocks that may hinder their ability to function at their highest quality of performance.
During a session, many clients report a sense of calming relaxation, and at times release of old emotions. Reiki is also commonly used for pain management, enhanced recovery time from accidents, and pre and post surgery. It is a great modality to add to any medical and/or relaxation protocol.
Once viewed as strictly alternative medicine, many hospitals are training nurses and other care providers to use Reiki in patient care.
