Tip: Reiki -- Universal Life Energy

Reiki (which is pronounced ray-key) is a form of therapeutic touch and actually means "universal life energy" in Japanese. Reiki practitioners use light hand placements to channel energy to their client. The goal is to balance and enhance the individual's energy to promote optimum health. Developed more than 150 years ago by the Japanese educator Mikao Usui, Reiki is based on concepts in ancient Buddhist scriptures and is most often used as an adjunctive treatment for acute or chronic pain. One study showed that patients experiencing pain from a variety of conditions found that their pain levels were significantly lowered following a Reiki session. Reiki is also used to reduce anxiety in patients who are preparing for surgery. To learn more, see Reiki Energy Medicine by Libby Barnett and Maggie Chambers (Healing Arts Press, 1996).
