Complementary Therapies are effective in eliciting a relaxation response, reducing anxiety and changing the perception of pain. Facilitation of the body’s natural restorative process brings about an improved sense of well-being, providing comfort during distressing circumstances.
Reiki is an ancient form of natural healing that originated in Japan. “Rei” means universal wisdom and “Ki” means life force. Reiki is administered by the “laying on of hands” directly on or just above the body.
It is believed that Reiki was created by Dr. Mikao Usui, a Buddhist monk, who spent a lifetime studying medicine, psychology, religion, meditation and spiritual development. It was introduced to North America in 1938.
