Reiki is a form of therapy that uses simple hands-on visualization techniques, with the goal of improving the flow of life energy in a person. Reiki (pronounced ray-key) means "universal life energy" in Japanese, and Reiki practitioners are trained to detect and alleviate problems of energy flow on the physical, emotional and spiritual level. Reiki touch therapy is used in much the same way to achieve similar effects that traditional massage therapy is used - to relieve stress and pain, and to improve the symptoms of various health conditions.
Practitioners have reported success in helping patients with acute and chronic illnesses, from asthma and arthritis to trauma and recovery from surgery. Reiki is a gentle and safe technique, and has been used successfully in some hospitals. It has been found to be very calming and reassuring for those suffering from severe or fatal conditions. Reiki has been used by doctors, nurses, psychologists and other health professionals to bring touch and deeper caring into their healing practices.
