The Benefits of Reiki
By Lubna Sheikh on 22nd March 2018
Reiki is an old Japanese healing technique, which is done by delivering vital healing energy by means of touch. Not only does it help with the physical issues you might suffer from, but also psychologically.
The Reiki movement started in the early 1920s by Mikao Usui, after studying ancient healing methods for years. The main basis of Reiki is about teaching to heal yourself first before being able to heal others. Many Reiki Masters, therefore, teach you, to heal yourself through Reiki.
Recently, many mainstream healers have seen the benefits of Reiki alongside traditional medicine, which has resulted in many hospitals offering Reiki treatment.
