1. a healing technique based on the principle that the therapist can channel energy into the patient by means of touch, to activate the natural healing processes of the patient's body and restore physical and emotional well-being.
Reiki empowers your authentic self and facilitates your body's own natural healing process. It is uniquely different with each use, as the recipient absorbs the Reiki energy according to need. Reiki usually "feels good" and can help you feel much better as you heal. Most people sleep better after a Reiki treatment.
It is not necessary to believe that Reiki will work for it to be successful. Reiki heals the whole person--in body, mind and spirit.
You can receive Reiki as a distance (absentee, remote) treatment.
