We all have an electromagnetic field around our bodies, and Reiki is a way of making that more balanced so that we feel better. It's akin to peeling the layers of an onion. Reiki doesn't heal symptoms, it goes much deeper than that. Layer by layer, Reiki assists in bringing core issues to the surface so that the body can release what no longer serves it. Once you get to the core, the body can begin to heal on all levels; physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually.
Reiki is a form of healing that is similar to therapeutic touch. A reiki treatment is so relaxing that it's like getting a massage, except that it's not. There is no manipulation of skin tissue. The practitioner is merely assisting clients and patients to heal themselves. Reiki is an energetic hug!
Reiki is a great alternative healing method for removing emotional blocks that keep us stuck. Reiki is not a cure but it can be beneficial in assisting us to move forward on our life's path.
