What about Reiki?

Hello everyone I am new here but I believe this is the place to ask about something that I was so much know how the Catholics feel. Does anyone here know about Reiki? How do you feel about it? and how does the Catholic church feel about Reiki?

Reiki is not an appropriate practice for Christians. It does involve an attempt to manipulate a supernatural or psychic force and therefore is ruled out.

I highly recommend Clare McGrath Merkle’s article
[Reiki and Tantric Magic; Healing or Hell?](“http://www.catholicculture.org/docs/doc_view.cfm?recnum=2929”) and the Church’s document on the New Age
Jesus Christ The Bearer of the Water of Life A Christian reflection on the “New Age”

I also recommend the book Catholics and the New Age by Fr. Mitchell Pacwa.
