Reiki

This massage is different from other massage. Why I said so, because the massage therapist didn’t touch our body. The principle of this massage techniques is giving the engery for balancing the "chakras". This massage benefit to restore the body, mind and spirit of a person. Before that we have to take a deep breath. The massage therapist will pray for a while.

Then the massage therapis will put his hand on the head patient. When he feel something different he stop at this part of the body for three until five minutes to balancing the energy and throw the negative energy. Although our body don‘t touch by massage therapis. But patient felt the hot sensation from the massage therapist hand. And sometimes Reiki make the patient emotionally overwhelming. such as laughing, crying. and after that they feel comfortable and healthier.
