What is Reiki and where can I find a Reiki practitioner in Ft. Worth?

Reiki means "Spiritually Guided Life Force Energy." It's a Japanese technique used for relaxation and stress reduction. By tapping in to the life force energy, health is improved and the quality of life is enhanced. Every living thing has a life force energy that animates the body. The life force energy is also the primary energy of our emotions, thoughts, and spiritual life.

Yes, spiritual life. Reiki is not a religion; it is spiritual-based. There is no dogma or deity to believe in. To put it simply, Reiki is a method of spiritual healing.

According to MedicineNet.com, "...when spiritual energy is channeled through a Reiki practitioner, the patients spirit is healed, which in turn heals the physical body."

When used in conjunction with medical and therapeutic techniques, Reiki has many health benefits such as promoting recovery, helps with acute or chronic conditions such as asthma, migraines, arthritis and depression. Reiki is also useful for managing pain, and helps lower blood pressure. There is a whole slew of health problems that Reiki can help with.

Sometimes we become imbalanced due to various reasons (self-neglect, emotional trauma, destructive relationships, etc). Think of Reiki as a way to put everything back into balance.
