How Does Reiki Work?
The recipient will lie on a massage table clothed as the Reiki practitioner places his or her hands over them. Using various hand positions, the practitioner acts as the pathway for universal life energy to transfer healing energy into the recipient.
The healing energy passed from the practitioner to the recipient reduces stress in the body, allowing energy to flow more freely. Internal energy that flows freely will balance an imbalanced body mentally, emotionally, spiritually, and physically.
