How Does Reiki Work?
Reiki practitioners act as a conduit between the recipient and the source of the Universal Life Force Energy. The energy flows through the practitioner’s hands to the recipient through gentle touch. The hands are lightly placed on or near the body in various positions around the head, shoulders, stomach, and feet. Sometimes a practitioner will also treat above the body. Reiki helps to restore and balance the energy allowing the body to better heal itself.
The recipient of Reiki is an active participant during their session. They do this by setting an intention to being open to receive whatever they might need most from the session. The Reiki practitioner is trained to facilitate the flow of energy and does not dictate or manipulate it, but instead allows it to go where it is needed.
