This energy is said to permeate the body. Reiki experts point out that, while this energy is not measurable by modern scientific techniques, it can be felt by many who tune in to it.
Reiki is alleged to aid relaxation, assist in the body’s natural healing processes, and develop emotional, mental, and spiritual well-being.
It is also said to induce deep relaxation, help people cope with difficulties, relieve emotional stress, and improve overall wellbeing.
People who receive Reiki describe it as “intensely relaxing.”
Cancer patients who have Reiki say they feel better after.
This may be because it helps them relax.
Another reason, according to Cancer Research U.K. could be that the therapist spends time with them and touches them.
This has a soothing effect on patients who may be overwhelmed by invasive therapy, fear, and stress.
