Reiki is another Asian healing art that follows similar processes to that of acupressure, using the same key acupoints on the body. It primarily involves using the palm of the hand to channel and stimulate life energy, and has the same effect on the body, both emotionally and physically.

Differently, however, Reiki can be used to heal the body from a distance, and often involves alternative healing techniques like the use of crystals, aromatherapy and homeopathic medicine. Fundamentally, Reiki works to restore the balance of energy, helping to boost the body’s self-healing abilities, block pain and resolve emotional issues
