Q What is Reiki used for, and how does it work?
A Reiki (RAY-key) is a form of energy medicine used to relax the mind, decrease pain and accelerate healing. Derived from the Japanese words rei (universal spirit) and ki (life energy), Reiki means “universal life energy.”
As “conduits” for this energy, Reiki practitioners apply light touch around or on the receiver’s clothed body, allowing the energy “to flow through them and through their hands into the receiver. The energy will go where the receiver needs it at that particular time,” says Maya Page, Reiki practitioner/trainer in Santa Fe, N.M. Different hand positions are used on the head, abdomen, back and elsewhere to help restore physical and emotional well-being.
Reiki practitioners are trained to work on themselves, too—“it’s like having a first-aid kit at our fingertips,” Page says.
Reiki was introduced to the United States in the 1930s from Japan. Although there has been little scientific study, Reiki is practiced throughout the world and increasingly is being used as an adjunct therapy in hospitals and other conventional healthcare settings.
