What is Reiki? How has this Japanese healing tradition evolved over the years? How are modern magic practitioners using Reiki energy in their spells and rituals? Medical Reiki and mystical Reiki are emerging as the two strongest schools of thought in the healing community today. Some practitioners and teachers are focusing on the medical legitimacy of Reiki in the scientific community. They participate in research projects and lobby for Reiki to be brought into the hospital and doctor's office. They teach it to healthcare practitioners, nurses, and doctors. They lobby insurance companies to cover the costs of Reiki sessions. They see it as a complementary practice to traditional and alternative medicine and seek legitimacy in the way acupuncture, Chinese medicine, Aryuveda, yoga, and some aspects of herbals have been accepted by modern medicine. Many people agree that Reiki is a wonderful complement to modern medicine. It works. If it didn't, you wouldn't be using it. But some people feel the need to take out all this “mumbo jumbo” in the Reiki community and divorce it from talk about spirituality, enlightenment, spirit guides, angels, and magic. You need to understand and research before starting.

Pranic, Tantric, and Reiki are considered alternative methods of healing. In spite of the availability and relative accessibility of modern medicine, how come more and more people are being drawned to them? If you stay focused you will learn to relax and enjoy life.
Energy healing worked where modern medicine failed. For several reasons both explainable and unexplainable, modern medical treatment failed to heal ailments and conditions in several if not many persons. Research or data may not be able to support this statement. But for the families of the dying as well as for the dying patient, they would take the risk of using alternative methods ranging from herbals and organics, faith healers, witch doctors, and New Age healing techniques just to be get well.People perceive modern medicine to be isolating. Energy medicine, energy therapy or energy healing is a branch of complementary and alternative medicine that holds the belief that a healer is able to channel healing. Energy healing is a way of improving the operating system of your body.
Medical treatments are oftentimes focused on the disease and its causative agent, which can make a patient feel isolated and treated like a mere host of the disease. Although recent developments in hospital practice are gradually promoting the holistic treatment of a patient, the perception still persists. Unlike in energy healing, since energy and spirituality are intimately linked, the patient feels that all aspects of his health are being attended to.
Energy healing is non-obtrusive and natural thus it is safer. The ways in which this energy is used, modified, or manipulated to effect healing also vary.
