What is Reiki
Reiki (pronounced Ray-key) is a Japanese name consisting of 2 words Rei and Ki meaning life energy (commonly known as Universal Life Energy), an energy which animates us all and is found all around us. Reiki is a form of spiritual healing using "universal life energy" channelled through the practitioner to the recipient.Reiki helps to harmonize body, mind and spirit for yourself or anyone you want to help. Please observe that Reiki should never be used instead of medical treatment, it should be used as a compliment and a way to become and remain healthy. As in any healing the first step towards a healthier life is a desire to be healed.
Reiki for Dementia

Research has shown that Reiki healing can be effective in addressing a number of the challenges dementia patients and their caregivers face every day. Scientific validation of Reiki's effectiveness comes from numerous studies examining a variety of types of people, problems and settings. This type of research has helped bring Reiki into the mainstream.
Reiki for PTSD
Reiki can be used for many ailments like reducing stress, relieving pain, headaches, stomach upsets, anxiety and many more. In 2007, Dr. John Fortunato, a Vietnam veteran, clinical psychologist, and former Benedictine monk started the Fort Bliss Restoration and Resilience center in Texas (it offered meditation, yoga, massage, and Reiki in addition to other holistic healing methods). The then Secretary of Defense, Robert Gates, and Army Chief of Staff General George Casey both praised the program and felt it should be replicated throughout the military.
