What is Reiki?
Reiki is a type of therapy that is often described as palm healing or hands on body healing, and it can be given as a means of treatment at our physical therapy in Brooklyn. The practitioner will place their hands over various places on the patient’s body in order to promote healing. Reiki combines the Chinese and Japanese word characters where the first part, “rei,” means spiritual and the second part, “ki,” refers to vital energy. The basic idea is that the Reiki master (practitioner) can aide in the body’s natural ability to heal itself through the use of vital energy being channeled.
How it works
When the session starts, the patient will be lying on a massage table. Starting with the crown of the head, the Reiki master will place their hands on the patient’s body in various positions. The Reiki energy will then flow through the master to the patient. While it is not clear how this process works, one of the prevailing theory is that Reiki therapy helps promote relaxation for the patient. Stress can have many detrimental effects on the body, so relaxation could be a key to healing. By choosing to receive Reiki at our physical therapy in Brooklyn, your body could be healed by natural methods.
Reiki therapy not a traditional form of treatment, but that doesn’t mean that it is not effective. A session of Reiki from our master can give you the relaxing treatment you’ve been seeking.
