Reiki is a type of healing energy medicine offered through light, non-invasive touch to a fully clothed recipient with the goal of improving the flow of life energy in a person. Occupational Therapy** sessions incorporating Reiki are customized to help restore physical and emotional health, and meet each person’s unique wellness goals.
Reiki practitioners are trained to detect and alleviate problems of energy flow on the physical, and emotional level. The basic concept underlying Reiki is that the body has an energy field that is central to its health and proper functioning, and this energy travels in certain pathways that can become blocked or weakened. This idea of energy flow in the body is also a central concept in Ayurvedic medicine and Traditional Chinese Medicine.
Reiki practitioners believe that over time people's systems become blocked and their energy becomes weakened. It is also believed that everyone has the potential to access the universal life energy to reestablish a healthy balance. A Reiki practitioner is trained to detect these blockages and place their hands over positions on the body where the organs and endocrine glands reside facilitating energy movement and strengthening the persons energy system for self-healing.
Reiki is in major clinics and hospitals as part of their complimentary and integrative healing practice where health professionals have been trained to use its gentle touch techniques as part of their practice.
