Reiki has been used widely as a means to treat illnesses and to ease body pains. Some have been associating it to the re-energizing of the body through freeing blocks of energies from the mind and the heart. On the other hand, others associate it with the activation of dormant energies from the individual. In relation to this, many have been using the treatment as a means to create a perfect environment for the baby within the womb of the mother. Future mothers have been utilizing this energy attunement as well in order to ease the difficulties associated with pregnancy.
