A woman receives Reiki treatment.What is Reiki?

Reiki is a noninvasive Japanese healing practice that involves the placement of hands above or gently on the body, using “life-force energy” to facilitate relaxation and stress reduction and to promote healing. This personalized, one-on-one method of care can be tailored to the needs and preferences of the individual, with clients fully clothed and with sessions of varying length and approach. At UK HealthCare, Reiki can be provided on its own or added to any massage session.

  • What are the benefits of Reiki?

    In addition to providing a sense of calm and promoting relaxation, Reiki has been shown to effectively reduce pain and anxiety, improve sleep, relieve stress and depression, and accelerate recovery after surgical procedures.
