Energy Therapies and Natural Healing Methods
This section is primarily inspired by the
questions from our Reiki students and patients.
is the difference between Reiki and Healing Touch ?
fact, there is not a lot of difference between all energy therapies when
we understand the true foundation of energy work which reside first and
foremost in the intention, the faith and the quality of being present
and open towards the energy.
Reiki or Healing Touch energy work is the true encounter between the
individual receiving, the individual giving the treatment and the
One of the most noticeable difference between Reiki and Healing
Touch resides in the teaching methods. For instance, Reiki's teaching
goes directly to the essential of energy work and invites the
practitioner to work on himself to increase the energy flow. The work of
a Reiki practitioner starts with the act of gently but firmly commanding
his own ego to step aside.
Surely because it is first and foremost promoted by nurses that wish
to integrate Healing Touch within the Health Network, Healing Touch
teaches that the practitioner is required to find the problem
intuitively or rationally and then apply the appropriate
technique. In Healing Touch, there is various techniques and the
practitioner is invited to orient a little more the energy work,
forgetting sometimes that in fact the healing energy is consciousness et
knows what to do.
Another difference between Reiki and Healing Touch resides in the
approach towards its relation with the energy: Healing Touch is more
influenced by the medical health and wellness approach as per Reiki is
more spiritual which remind us that healing is achieve through
liberation and spiritual awakening.
One last difference is that Healing Touch is more organised and
structured than Reiki. The formation is controlled and follows
recognized standards within the program of continued formation for
nurses. As per Reiki, besides a few trials of implementing an organised
education program and establishing standards, its reflect often the
personality of the individual that teaches Reiki. This is why it is
important to distinguish and select what is true or appropriate for us
when we are about to choose a Reiki practitioner.
