Reiki is an alternative healing technique that’s gaining momentum in pop culture and is even endorsed by Dr. Oz. Reiki is of Japanese origin which means, higher power (rei) and life energy (ki).
How does Reiki work? The principle behind this alternative healing method is simple – the therapist channels his energy to the patient through touch which then activates the patient’s natural healing processes. The process restores one’s physical health and emotional well-being.
Reiki is commonly effective with patients who have been through grave emotional distress. Getting over the loss of a loved one or family for instance takes great toll on one’s emotional stability.
