rei·ki/ˈrākē/ - “rei” (universal) and “ki” (life energy)
Google's Definition: A healing technique based on the principle that the therapist can channel energy into the patient by means of touch, to activate the natural healing processes of the patient's body and restore physical and emotional well-being.
Energy can linger in the body where there has been a physical injury and/or emotional pain. In time, these energy blocks can build up and cause illness.
Energy medicine aims to help the flow of energy and remove blocks in a similar way to other holistic approaches such as acupuncture. Improving the flow of energy around the body, can enable relaxation, reduce pain, speed healing, and reduce other symptoms of illness.
