Reiki (RAY-key) is a gentle hands-on energy healing modality that calms the central nervous system so the mind and body can heal naturally. The central nervous system 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
Complementary medicine practitioners, such as yoga teachers, massage therapists, reflexologists, and acupuncturists integrate reiki into their personal and professional practices. Reiki is also used in hospitals by doctors, nurses, and therapists.
