Massages are great for soothing tight muscles or un-cricking a crick in my aging neck. But there are some techniques that borrow from the New Age, rooted in Eastern religions that open up spiritual doors to danger.
Today you’ll meet a woman named Sandy who was forced to take a type of training called Reiki in order to obtain her therapeutic massage certificate. She refused to participate in the classroom exercise, but a look at her classroom notes should be a cautionary tale for any Christian who wants to discern between a physical massage and the spiritual “energy” rituals that are so prevalent in the massage industry. Sandy wrote us a letter a few months back urging Christians to avoid Reiki. We shared it in a post titled, A Reiki warning: taking a stand.
