Reiki is administered through the hands of the Reiki practitioner with the client lying clothed on a massage table. The Reiki practitioner places their hands on various locations on the body, but tissue is not manipulated. Reiki healing energy flows from the practitioner's hands into the client's body and energy field.
A Reiki session feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that surrounds and fills the client with feelings of relaxation, peace, and well-being that also promote healing. Clients report help with stress, headaches, insomnia, upset stomach, sprains, as well as promoting psychological healing, releasing unhealthy feelings, and restoring confidence and tranquility.
Reiki, first developed in Japan, is becoming increasingly popular with the medical community in the US with over 800 hospitals offering Reiki as a standard part of hospital care.
