What does the church teach about Reiki?

Hello, I was wondering about Reiki, I am a Christian studying to be a Catholic and I have been practising Reiki for several years. I came to Reiki as a last ditch effort to relieve the extreme pain of an hederitary disease I suffer from. I am now doing Reiki 2 for many people all over the world. Before I do any healing I pray to our Lord and savior, Jesus Christ, giving all glory to Him as well as asking for the power to Heal via Him. The results are quite amazing, and I feel much closer to Jesus as a result of my experience. Can you please advise me as to your opinions on this subject? YVT., Jeff
