What is REIKI?
Reiki (靈氣）healing is a popular energy healing originated in Kyoto Japan but it is used more in European countries. Research says Reiki has better effects than Placebo (McManus DE, 2017). The practitioner places their hands lightly on or over specific areas to help the flow of energy and remove blocks like acupuncture. You can choose your favourite massage as well.
Dr. Arinaga was a researcher of lymphoedema and gave many kinds of massage for patients.
The abdominal massage technique is soft but it definitely approaches the lymphatic system and bowels. We measured the softness of the abdomen before and after the massage, and The abdomen was softer compared to before.
The lymphatic system in the lower limb will be also stimulated after the abdominal massage.
We offer a drink after the massage. Biwa (loquat) and Nagasaki mikan (tangerine) is a specialty in this area. Research shows that loquat extracts contain many antioxidants, and different extracts exhibit bioactivity capable of counteracting inflammation, diabetes, cancer, bacterial infection, aging, pain, allergy and so on(Zhang, 2016).
