Thai Massage is a floor massage where the fully dressed client lies on a mat. A well designed system of yoga based assisted movements and stretches allows the therapist to manipulate the client without much effort. Every movement is created to support the client as well as the therapist. Silence between the therapist and the client allows the therapist to understand the client and to give the client a chance to focus on breath and sensation in order to learn about himself without distraction. To give and to receive Thai Massage is a meditative practice. At the end of a one or one and a half hour treatment, both the receiver and the therapist will feel relaxed and energized. Each Session ends with a short Reiki Healing treatment, to heal and restore any imbalances.

The activity of healing with the hands (also known as 'Theraputic Touch' in the US) has been known about for thousands of years, with the origins of it lost in the mists of time. In the early 20th century a Japanese doctor, Dr Mikao Usui, developed the art of 'healing hands' and named it 'Reiki'; - 'Rei' meaning 'universal' and 'ki' meaning energy. He saw the ability to heal as a benefit to mankind and documented it, whereupon his methods then became widespread.
It is known that all particles, atoms, cells and bodies in the universe have their own electromagnetic field. Therefore, it is not unreasonable to conclude that the tissues and bodies of living things also have an electromagnetic field, however small. This field is known as the BioMagnetic energy field, and it is this energy field that reiki has been shown to work with.Reiki and a persons Aura or BioMagnetic Field Following that each body has a BioMagnetic field, it is also referred to as someones 'Aura'. There is also suggestion that the Aura can be photographed using Kirlian photography. People have reported being able to see the Aura with the naked eye. As visible light is also a form of electromagnetic radiation, this concept isn't so strange to understand.
In the early 1990's Dr John Zimmerman conducted an experiment at the University of Colorado to measure the amount of energy emitted from the hands of a reiki therapist using a SQUID. The results showed that the energy released was in the form of electromagnetic pulses at frequencies scanning between 0.5Hz and 30Hz with a strength of .0001 gauss. Further research was performed by the Japanese in 1992 confirming the results. Therefore we can conclude that reiki energy contains electromagnetic pulses.
In medicine, devices that produce Electromagnetic Pulses are used in the field of orthopedics mainly to assist in bone growth and repair. This therapy is referred to as 'Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy (PEMF)', or 'Pulsed Magnetic Therapy.
