Reiki is a type of energy healing that is used to treat pain, anxiety, and depression, and often creates a state of deep relaxation. Through its effects, Reiki improves emotional, mental, and physical well-being.
Historically, Reiki was developed in Japan in 1922 by a Buddhist named Mikao Usui. However, the treatment itself is non-denominational and is not a religion. Reiki’s core theory is that the energetic fields that surround the body can develop blockages that eventually will lead to illness if not treated. These are the same energetic fields that are worked upon during Acupuncture sessions.
Reiki sessions at The Chen Center last 45 minutes and are done in-person. During treatment, the hands of the Reiki practitioner hover above various parts of the body at a distance of a few inches. Patients may experience a warmth, relaxation, and a sense of gentle energetic movement. We especially recommend Reiki treatment for those wanting a complementary therapy without needles. Reiki is appropriate treatment for all ages and conditions but does not replace conventional medical treatment.
