Reiki- Energy Therapy

"Reiki" (pronounced "ray-key"), is the Japanese word for "Universal Life Energy." I was first introduce to Reiki when my Mother was going to Cancer Centers of America in Philadelphia. She was in pain and tried the Reiki treatments. The treatments seem to work well for her pain. Developed in the 1920’s by Mikao Usui of Kyoto, Japan this is a hand healing medicine. It uses the heat of the Reiki practitioner hands to guide the energy in the patients body to a certain location enhancing the body's ability to heal or reduce the inflammation causing the pain. The believe is, if one restore harmony and the energy flow within the body it will led to a healthier body.
Any one can learn Reiki. while at the Cancer center they were offering classes. One can check out the hospitals and teaching universities for classes on Reiki. With the high cost and all the side effects of Medication learning an alternative solution is a good thing.
