The healing benefits of Reiki are many. It's a great stress reducer. It can calm emotional storms. It gives comfort to those who are grieving. When performed before and after surgeries, Reiki helps minimize pain and speed recovery. Nurses have been quietly using it in hospitals for years. Reiki is also useful in helping the terminally ill with their transitions. If they are meant to regain their health, Reiki healing brings balance and strength to their bodies. And if it's their time to go, it helps calm their fears for a gentler passing. Reiki can be safely used on pets, children, or anyone who asks for or needs a healing.
Reiki practitioners pass through at least one of three attunements, or infusions of Reiki energy and instruction, given by a Reiki Master, a person who has completed all three levels.
