Originating in Japan, Reiki involves the guiding of the energy, or Ki, that surrounds and is contained within all living beings. The practitioner places hands in a number of positions on or above the client’s body, and provides a conduit for energy flow to be channeled and blockages cleared. The practitioner is not contributing his or her own energy, but rather serves as an enabler who allows the client to access internal Ki and come to terms with issues such as anxiety, stress, and self-esteem issues.
Reflexology involves the concept of application of pressure on the hands and feet as a way of affecting various parts of the body, including the organs, glands, and skeletal system. Focused on the nervous system, reflexology emphasizes a physical approach to wellness, and this technique has been effective on people suffering from PMS, digestive problems, and back pain. Thus, reflexology is complementary to Reiki, which focuses on mental and emotional issues.
