What is Reiki and how is it used in spiritual healing?

Reiki is a form of energy healing that originated in Japan in the early 20th century. The practice involves the use of the practitioner's hands to channel energy into the client's body, promoting balance, relaxation, and healing. Reiki is based on the belief that there is a universal life force energy that flows through all living things, and when this energy is blocked, it can lead to physical, emotional, and spiritual imbalances.

During a Reiki session, the client lies down or sits comfortably while the practitioner places their hands on or near the body in a series of hand positions. The practitioner uses their hands to channel energy into the client's body, promoting relaxation, releasing blocked energy, and balancing the chakras.

Reiki is often used in spiritual healing to promote emotional healing, reduce stress and anxiety, and improve overall wellbeing. It is believed to be a gentle and non-invasive form of therapy that can be used alongside conventional medical treatment.

While there is limited scientific evidence to support the effectiveness of Reiki, many people report feeling more relaxed and balanced after a session. However, it is important to note that Reiki should not be used as a substitute for medical treatment, and individuals should always consult with a qualified healthcare professional before trying any form of alternative therapy.
