Reiki is beneficial for both physical and emotional healing. As the provider uses reiki, a strong connection is formed between the provider and the receiver. This type of communicated from the energy work allows the provider to know how to better help the receiver experience emotional clarity and spiritual growth. As the work is being done, the bond grows stronger. This bond allows the provider to express love for the receiver through the energy work being done. In addition, the receiver is able to feel the love and positive exchange of energy flow. The receiver expresses the love of the work from the provider by being open and accepting. The receiver is also able to experience a strong appreciation for the provider. Since both provider and receiver experience a heightened sense of love for one another, the use of reiki helps both individuals in their personal relationships with others. Reiki is becoming more accepted as a alternative healing practice as it is used more to help others.
