What is reiki?


Reiki is an energy healing technique that promotes relaxation, reduces stress and anxiety through gentle touch. Reiki practitioners use their hands to deliver energy to your body, improving the flow and balance of your energy to support healing.


Mikao Usui developed reiki in the early 1900s, deriving the term from the Japanese words rei, meaning “universal,” and ki, which refers to the vital life force energy that flows through all living things. Now, reiki is used all over the world, including in hospitals and hospices to complement other forms of health treatments.


Reiki aids in healing by helping people become energetically balanced — physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually.

reiki Benefits

A relaxing soak in the tub isn’t the only kind of bath that can have health benefits.

Research into this subject is limited, but there have been studies that indicate a sound bath may improve your mood and release tension in your body, among other things.

Waves of soothing, echoing sound from traditional wind and percussion instruments, also known as a “sound bath,” may help with stress, fatigue, and depression symptoms.

Since stress is associated with other conditions like diabetes and heart disease, engaging in sound baths might be a good preventive strategy to reduce the risk of chronic conditions, too.

Sound baths aren’t a replacement for proven treatments, but they can be considered a low-risk complement to any other methods you’ve been exploring with your doctor.

Things you might experience include:

  • Feeling calmer/less stressed.

  • Muscles that feel looser.

  • A greater sense of relaxation.

  • Pain relief.

  • The ability to sleep better.

  • Improved mood.

  • Better body awareness/being more in tune with your body.

A sound bath shouldn’t be considered a replacement for any medical treatments you’re having. Instead, it’s better seen as a complementary or supplementary treatment. “Many things out there aren’t in opposition with any treatments we might be receiving from our doctors,” Bond says. “It’s useful to remember that there are complementary therapies available, like a sound bath, meditation, yoga and tai chi.”
