Reiki uses a technique commonly called hands on healing. Through the use of this technique, practitioners transfer universal energy (i.e., reiki) in the form of qi (Japanese: ki) through the palms, which they believe allows for self-healing and a state of equilibrium. Reiki helps the body balance itself physically, mentally and emotionally. It is deeply relaxing yet energizing at the same time. This treatment is three parts - discussing what you want to focus on, hands on time, and a follow up discussion.
