What is Reiki?
Reiki is a therapy often described as palm healing or hands-on-body healing in which a practitioner places hands lightly on or over a patient’s body to facilitate the patient’s process of healing.
Reiki combines the Japanese and Chinese word-characters of “rei” (spiritual or supernatural) and “ki” (vital energy). One of the basic ideas held by those who practice Reiki is that this vital energy can be channelled to support the body’s natural ability to heal itself, according to the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (NCCIH).
However, there is no scientific evidence to support claims that so-called vital energy actually exists, nor is there conclusive evidence that Reiki is useful for any health-related purpose, according to the NCCIH. But despite the fact that Reiki hasn’t been proven effective at treating certain health conditions, that doesn’t mean it’s a harmful practice.
“Reiki can do no harm — the worst thing it can do is nothing,” said Ann Baldwin, a professor of physiology at the University of Arizona and a trained Reiki master, or practitioner.
