Reiki practitioners administer life force energy by using their hands. The practitioner places his/her hands near the body or lightly touching the body of the patient. The universal energy force is directed towards the patient’s body through the bare hands of the practitioner. The patient should gradually feel a sense of relaxation, stress relief, mental clarity, and a reduction in his/her pain levels.
Research into the practice has revealed that the healing would occur due to the activity in the patient’s parasympathetic autonomic nervous system. In fact, the activities of this system increase significantly to provide the spiritual, emotional, and physical healing benefits to the patient.
