Is Reiki beneficial in conjunction with Psychotherapy?
Psychotherapeutic Reiki is a technique that is used to treat psychological, emotional, and behavioral problems. It blends Reiki and psychotherapy to release any negative effects of any traumatic experiences or conditions in peoples’ lives. This works by identifying blocks, pattern, and beliefs with traditional psychotherapy, followed by utilizing Reiki to process, heal and move forward. As new realizations arise for the client, they are then discussed and worked through.
