Using Reiki As A Therapeutic Intervention for Trauma and to Promote Healing (Troy University)
Reiki from the Japanese words Rei which translates to universal, and Ki, which translates to life energy has been practiced for thousands of years. However, only recently are western healthcare practitioners integrating its use to treat clients in a more holistic manner. Reiki has been used to alleviate both physical and psychological symptoms while incorporating the mind, body, and soul in treatment interventions. As more and more medical doctors are writing prescriptions for patients to literally go into nature as an intervention towards healing, this session will focus on how to use Reiki to relieve emotional distress by shifting their thoughts through energy work.
