Reiki is not massage. I'm happy to see reiki featured in the WSJ, but would like to clarify the practice for those who may be confused. Recipients remain fully clothed, and relax in a comfortable position in a chair or on a reiki table (similar to a massage table). The reiki practitioner places his or her hands on or just above the recipient's body. When I share reiki, I focus my intention on assisting the recipient to achieve the greatest good, or optimal level of health. Most people find reiki to be relaxing; most report enhanced feelings of well-being.
