Reiki means ‘mysterious atmosphere, miraculous sign’ and comes from the Japanese words ‘rei’ (meaning universal) and ‘ki’ (meaning life energy).
Like shiatsu and trigger point therapy, it’s all about energy healing and removing blockages to reduce symptoms of illness.
Even though reiki is becoming more popular today, there’s very little evidence that demonstrates medical benefits.
Don’t rule it out completely though, as an article in the Journal of Evidence-Based Complementary & Alternative Medicine found ‘reasonably strong support’ for reiki being effective when it comes to reducing pain and anxiety in people with chronic health conditions.
Duration: The massage is usually 50 minutes.
