Reiki (RAY-key) is a gentle hands-on energy healing modality that calms the central and peripheral nervous systems so the mind and body can heal naturally.
The central and peripheral nervous systems consists of the brain, spinal cord, nerve endings, optic and auditory nerves, and the upper digestive system.
Reiki benefits include the following:
- Calm mind
- Relaxed body
- Reduced stress
- Improved mental focus
- Increased physical energy
- Improved sleep
- Increased intuition/psychic abilities
- Reduces pregnancy symptoms and postpartum depression
- Balanced emotions of empaths, highly sensitive people, and those on the autism spectrum
Complementary medicine practitioners, such as yoga teachers, massage therapists, reflexologists, and acupuncturists integrate reiki into their personal and professional practices.
Reiki can be used with Western medicine, as it is used in hospitals by doctors, nurses, and therapists.
