A Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. Reiki raises the energetic vibration and breaks up the negativity to heal, clear and restore the natural flow of the life force. Also, used to accelerate healing, assist the body in cleansing toxins, and balance the flow of subtle energy by releasing blockages and help the client contact the healer within.
The practitioner's hands move progressively with a passive touch through twelve positions on the body, remaining in each position for three to five minutes. As a harmonic flow of energy is strengthened, within the client and practitioner, healing occurs through the return of physical, mental, and spiritual balance. Recipients of energy work often report dramatic reorientations in how they feel and move in the world.
