“Our whole spiritual transformation brings us to the point where we realize that in our own being, we are enough.” Ram Das
Reiki is a meditative practice, originating in Japan, that creates a space for energy to pass, through specific hand positions, to meridians in the body. This gently stimulates the body’s energetic systems, deeply relaxing the mind and drawing the focus towards subtler experiences. Many people report that the effect is very calming, amongst other benefits.
There is a small but growing body of empirical evidence that shows Reiki can be effective in treating a variety of conditions, including depression, stress, and chronic pain, even compared against control groups practicing non-specific therapeutic touch.1
