Reiki is a therapy often described as palm healing or hands-on-body healing in which a practitioner places hands lightly on or over a patient's body to facilitate the patient's process of healing.

Reiki combines the Japanese and Chinese word-characters of "rei" (spiritual or supernatural) and "ki" (vital energy). One of the basic ideas held by those who practise Reiki is that this vital energy can be channelled to support the body's natural ability to heal itself, 

 

 

What to expect:

during a Reiki therapy session, a patient typically lies down on a massage table. The Reiki practitioner places his or her hands over (or directly on top of) the patient's body in various positions, starting at the crown of the head, according to Baldwin. 

The Reiki energy flows through the practitioner, out of their hands to the person who's lying

on the table. Some Reiki masters claim that they can treat patients without being anywhere near them — a practice known as "distance healing." 

Nobody knows exactly how Reiki works. One idea is that Reiki is perhaps related to electromagnetic-type energy, and that it interacts with a person's electromagnetic field.

Reiki promotes relaxation, which in turn lowers a patient's stress response and encourages healing.
