By serving as a conduit and channeling the ambient life-force energy all around us, the natural healing processes within the body activate to help restore balance mentally, physically, and energetically. This helps to remove energetic stagnation, blocks, and at times physical discomfort. The beautiful thing about this gentle, healing energy is that it goes to where you need it the most. Reiki is also helpful when working with animals of all shapes and sizes. Animals are very open to receiving this energy and it can help with physical discomfort as well as anxious behaviors. Reiki is not a replacement for medical treatment.
