Reiki is described by adherents as a holistic therapy which brings about healing on physical, mental, emotional and spiritual level the belief is that the energy will flow through the practitioner's hands whenever the hands are placed on, or held near a potential recipient. Some teachings stress the importance of the practitioner's intention or presence in this process, while others claim that the energy is drawn by the recipient's injury to activate or enhance the natural healing processes8. Further to this notion, the belief is that the energy is "intelligent”, meaning that the Reiki knows where to heal, even if a practitioner's hands are not present in the specific area1. It has been effective in helping virtually every known illness and malady and always creates a beneficial effect. It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery4.
