Energy healing is an ancient alternative treatment that has been around for centuries. Several cultures have their own path of energy healing techniques to promote physical, mental, and spiritual well-being. Over the recent years, there has been a rise in the demand for one energy healing technique, and that is Reiki. Chances are that you might have already heard of Reiki, but let us understand what it is and how it can be beneficial for your holistic healing needs.
What Is Reiki?
It is an energy healing technique that originated in Japan around the 1900s. The word, ‘Reiki’ is made of two parts, ‘rei’ meaning universal and ‘ki’ meaning ‘life force’. This system believes that a balanced flow of energy is necessary for health. But at times due to injury, trauma, or illness, this flow is disrupted, leading to energy blockage. Reiki healers channelize the universal energy through their palms and transfer it to the body part that needs healing.
