What is Reiki?

"I totally grasp the concept of Reiki: ridding the body and mind of negative, toxic energy and replacing it with positive, healing energy.  Once that goal is realized (and only then) can we move forward to find purpose and meaning in our lives."  

-Julie B. (distance healing client in Atlanta, GA)

In this segment from the Dr. Oz show, Pamela Miles, a Reiki Master Therapist who has worked with Dr. Oz in the operating room, demonstrates Reiki.  She explains that Reiki is a balancing practice that resolves the underlying issues causing physical symptoms.  

Dr. Oz concludes by telling the audience to try Reiki because "it will cure what ails you."
