Reiki uses a technique commonly called palm healing or hands on healing. Through the use of this technique, practitioners believe that they are transferring universal energy in the form of qi (sometimes referred to as ki (Japanese), qi (Chinese) or prana (Yoga)) through the palms, which allows for self-healing and a state of equilibrium. The qi in reiki is understood as meaning ‘spiritual energy; vital energy; life force; energy of life’.
Reiki teachings claim that Reiki is inexhaustible and that it can be used to induce a healing effect. Described as a holistic therapy which brings about healing on physical, mental, emotional and spiritual levels, practitioners can use this healing method over direct areas of concern or use the system of specific hand positions over the whole body.

It is a deeply relaxing form of treatment which may assist healing on physical, mental, emotional and spiritual levels.
