The Los Angeles Times states the growing popularity of energy healing is that many modern day adults don't receive this sort of attention or care.
It's like when you have a stomach ache and you instinctively put your hand on the spot that's radiating pain and it feels a little better. Or when someone has a headache and you only know this because the person has their hands on their temples. Now imagine that the hand on the painful spot has been attuned to energy healing and has the intention to alleviate suffering. Doesn't that sound comforting? Reiki works the same way for mental, spiritual and emotional pain as it does physical pain. Inducing relaxation and elevating mood are just 2 benefits of receiving this healing. If you are curious, I highly suggest you try it!
