Reiki & Healing

What is the difference between Reiki and Healing?

Reiki healing may appear the same as Healing, often called Energy or Spiritual Healing.

There are, however, some differences between the two, and although the energy channelled in both systems is the same energy, the differences are in how the practitioner connects with it and uses it. Analogies could be for instance, a radio connecting you to music etc. via different radio channels.

Both systems use hands (hands on or hands off) to transmit the energies. The main difference is in the use of Japanese symbols in Reiki. In both instances the practitioner is calling in an outside source, such as universal life force energy and asking for the healing to come from somewhere other than their own personal energy.

I have now retired from practising complementary therapies professionally, but have left some of the pages up as general information for visitors to the website.
