What is Reiki?
Reiki is a practice developed in Japan in the early 1920’s. A massage is a manipulation of muscles in such a way that it loosens and relaxes them. Reiki is similar, only it’s done with a light touch or even just proximity of the person’s hands. The practice is meant to promote relaxation and balance the energy in the body.
Benefits of Reiki and Massage
Reiki and massage is used to promote both physical and spiritual healing. Through careful positioning of the healer’s hands, Reiki uses a universal life force to strengthen and restore the life force of the person receiving the treatment. Massage can reduce high blood pressure, relieve pain, and strengthen the immune system.
Reiki and massage together improves the quality of sleep, breathing, and aids in detoxification. The list of physical benefits that come from Reiki massage is endless.
