reiki therapy

[rī′kē]
a complementary therapy in which a trained practitioner places his or her hands on or above a specific body area and transfers what is called "universal life energy" to the patient. That energy, it is claimed, provides "strength, harmony, and balance" necessary to treat health disturbances. The therapy, derived from an ancient Buddhist practice, involves a total of 15 hand positions covering all the body systems.

Reiki

Paranormal
An energy healing system based on ancient Tibetan scriptures, which were rediscovered by Professor M Usui in the mid-1800s.  Reiki (which translates from Japanese as “universal energy of life”) sessions are performed by practitioners who have been initiated through “energy attunement” by a Reiki Master, channelling Universal Life Energy to family, friends and clients. The Reiki practitioner is believed to act as a conduit for cosmic energy, which enters the top of his or her head and leaves through the hands.
