Reiki is a healing technique from Japan that alleviates stress and promotes relaxation. Reiki practitioners run their hands just above a person's body in their energy field. The belief is that life force energy surrounds all living things, and if it is left unbalanced, it causes illness and stress.
What's Reiki massage?
During a Reiki massage, people often feel relaxed enough to fall asleep. The massage therapist may begin by lightly touching the patient and rubbing places of stress out of the patient's muscles. People may experience subtle vibrating pulsations in their muscles during their massage session, or may feel waves of pulsations throughout their entire body. The sessions are cumulative, so it may take a few sessions before a patient begins to feel all of the benefits of a Reiki massage.
