Reiki is a form of healing work where Source Qi is channeled and administered through the hands of a trained Reiki practitioner while the patient rests, fully clothed, in a comfortable position. The practitioner places her hands at different locations on the body; tissue is not manipulated. Reiki energy flows into the patient’s body and energy field providing relaxation and feelings of peace and wellbeing- all of which promotes healing.
In my experience, Reiki is particularly useful for people who have trauma stored in their body to the extent that a more moving modality like acupuncture feels too intense or at the start of a healing journey when a more moving modality brings up fear or resistance.
Reiki is not just healing for people, it is healing for all living things, including our plant allies and our support animals.
