Reiki is a hands-on (and off) healing technique that brings deep relaxation and relief from symptoms of dis-ease. Arthritis sufferers often report relief from arthritis pain that can last a few days or a week. Many nurses use Reiki on their patients in hospitals and most chronic pain centers offer reiki sessions as an option to manage pain.
During a Reiki session, the client rests comfortably on a massage table while the Reiki practitioner lightly places her hands on the head and various parts of the body. Some on or close to painful places and some a distance away. The intention is to allow Reiki Universal Healing Energy to flow to the places it is needed most for healing and balance. Clients most often experience warmth from the hands and a deep state of relaxation. Headaches and other pains can lessen. Multiple sessions can be most beneficial.
