Hands On Healing:
Reiki (pronounced Ray-kee), the Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation through spiritual energy, founded by Dr. Mikao Usui, has been used world-wide for thousands of years. A technique of laying on hands is performed, giving feelings of peace, relaxation, and well being. Considered a safe and simple method of spiritual healing with the desire to enhance the quality of life, Reiki is often combined with therapeutic massage for maximum benefit.
Reiki is used to treat the body, emotions, mind, and spirit to relieve muscle pain, tension, and a number of various medical ailments, bringing balance to the system, restoring the flow of energy needed for healing. Amazing results have been reported from hospitals across the country using this technique.
It is a spiritual experience that allows a closer connection to God. For a Christian viewpoint, see Reiki for Christians, a website created by Christians who practice Reiki.
