“Most commonly, reiki is used to ease pain, anxiety, fatigue, and depression, but since at its core is the conviction that the body in its natural state can heal any ailment, the applications, theoretically, are endless.

- When done with your razor, grab a dry corner of a towel between your thumb and fingers.
- Roll your hand over so the towel is upwards, held securely by your thumb.
