Overview

The Japanese art of Reiki involves the laying on of hands to alleviate physical and mental pain-and this beginner's guide explains how anyone can become a healer using this powerful, and increasingly popular, form of massage. Large-size color photographs display the 12 basic positions, which focus on the body's spiritual centers (or chakras) to remove blockages and balance energy. With a touch, relieve respiratory problems, weaknesses of the immune and circulatory systems, stress, migraines, and other common complaints. See how to combine reiki with crystal and color therapy, and how to work on babies, children, the elderly, and even pets. It's the ideal reference.
