Reiki and its benefits
Reiki is an ancient Japanese method of healing that uses energy to balance the body and mind. The practitioner holds his/her hands a few inches over your body, over (you remain fully clothed on the couch) and may actually place hands on you while channelling this energy for your benefit.
Jo Rawlinson, Reiki practitioner, explains what Reiki is, it’s non-invasive approach and how it can work on physical and emotional states and help you to create the space to find peace and balance following loss.

It can help with symptoms, speed up recovery from surgery and help in adjusting to any medicine/treatment as well as insomnia, anxiety, or stress symptoms.
