Reiki (the verb) is the transference of energy via a practitioner to a client to help heal the electromagnetic field around and through our bodies to affect positive change in the mental, physical, emotional, and etheric bodies. Put even more simply Reiki is like a blood transfusion, but for your energy to help expedite wellness. Energy is real and has been proven in many ways. Not just through physical experience. There are methods such as Kirlian photography, Aura Photography, and others that have been able, to capture the “coronal discharge, electromagnetic fields (or energy) of animate and even inanimate objects. Kirlian photography is acollection of photographic techniques used to capture the phenomenon of electrical coronal discharges. Semyon Kirlian, in 1939 accidentally discovered that if an object on a photographic plate is connected to a high-voltage source, an image is produced on the photographic plate. The technique has been variously known as “electrography”, “electrophotography”, “corona discharge photography” (CDP), “bioelectrography”, “gas discharge visualization (GDV)”, “electrophotonic imaging (EPI)”, and, in Russian literature, “Kirlianography”.

It has been found to be effective in helping every known illness, including cancer. It may be used in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote quality of life. Reiki energy is non-invasive and safe.”
