Reiki is really having a kind of revival in that for thousands of years it's been known as the "Laying on of hands" in many cultures. It's being rediscovered and formulated into healing techniques such as Reiki.
Energy healing is also part of a larger field of energy medicine. Use of crystals, herbs and "sound" are examples that contain vibratory patterns which influence the energetic patterns at work in the organs, cells etc. Energy healing is a unique part of energy medicine in that it involves the energy field of the healer to affect the energy of the client.
Some energy healers might use crystals, but usually it is the interaction between the client and healer on an energetic level that prompts healing to take place.
Both a Reiki and Re-connective Healing work on these energy center’s to bring back balance and flow, and to clear any blockages which then brings about healing on every level, Physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.
My clients come to me for both Re-connective Healing and Reiki to help with all sorts of things. The main difference between the two of them being that I use touch with Reiki and away from the body with Re-connective Healing. During a session, my clients will either fall asleep, giggle, cry and even twitch! This is a sign that the energy is going to where the person needs it. The end result is a feeling of deep relaxation and peace.
