Reiki is a form of energy healing that became popular in Japan around one hundred years ago. It is performed with light touch or no contact with the body, and involves channeling and transmission of vital energy by the practitioner. This is the same energy that is affected by acupuncture needles, and can be used to enhance the effect of acupuncture. Patients receiving Reiki often feel deeply relaxed and supported by a nourishing and comforting presence within and around themselves.
Qi-gong therapy is similar to Reiki, in that free atmospheric energy is captured and used to benefit the patient's organs and internal functions.
Reiki and Qi-gong therapy are both complete energy transmission and balancing techniques.
