Reiki is a light touch or non-touch form of bodywork that aims to balance the bodies energetic circuitry by bringing universal, creative energy, the chi or 'ki' in reiki, into the body. Energy blockages and stagnation that may be causing illness and discomfort can be moved and allowed to dissipate. A new flow is established. The client feels a sense of warmth, calm and rejuvenation.
Similar to reiki in many ways, healing touch has different positions for the hands and is always hands-off. It also aims to balance the bodies personal energy pathways to bring about healing.
