Reiki is a form of energy healing that originated in Japan. It is based on the idea that a practitioner can channel healing energy into a person or animal by placing their hands on or near the recipient’s body. The practitioner is believed to act as a conduit for this energy, which is thought to help restore balance and harmony to the recipient’s body, mind, and spirit.
Reiki practitioners use a variety of techniques, including hand positions and intention setting, to facilitate the flow of energy. Reiki sessions typically last for 30-60 minutes and may involve the practitioner placing their hands on or near various parts of the recipient’s body, including the head, shoulders, and abdomen.
Reiki is often used to help relieve stress, anxiety, and pain, and to promote overall well-being. It is also sometimes used to complement traditional medical treatment or to support people with chronic illnesses. While some people believe that Reiki is an effective form of healing, others are skeptical of its effectiveness and consider it to be a pseudoscience.
