An ancient Japanese practice is quietly revitalizing modern day Chicago: Reiki, a soft, hands-on technique involving the passage of restorative energy through touch from practitioner to patient.
Literally translated to “life energy,” reiki is useful for a variety of physical, emotional, and spiritual ailments. Most helpful in stress reduction and relaxation, the goal of reiki is to promote healing and restore balance in your body.
