Reiki is a form of complementary healing that has gained popularity in recent years. It is based on the idea that energy flows through our bodies, and when that energy is blocked, we can experience physical, emotional, and mental problems. Reiki practitioners use a technique called "laying on hands" to channel the energy of the body to promote healing and balance. In this post, we will explore the basics of Reiki, how it works, and the top 4 benefits of this ancient healing practice.

What is Reiki?

Reiki is a Japanese word that means "universal life force energy." It is a natural healing technique that uses the power of touch to promote physical, emotional, and mental healing. The practice of Reiki was developed in the early 20th century by a Japanese monk named Mikao Usui, who was searching for a way to help people achieve spiritual and emotional balance. Reiki has since spread to many countries around the world, and there are now many different styles and techniques used by practitioners.

How does Reiki work?

Reiki works by channeling the energy of the body to promote healing and balance. Reiki practitioners place their hands on or near the body, to achieve the free-flowing energy of the person receiving the treatment. The energy then flows freely through the chakras promoting healing and balance.
