Reiki is the Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words – Rei which means “God’s Wisdom or the Higher Power” and Ki which is “life force energy”. So Reiki is actually “spiritually guided life force energy.” It is administered with the client lying face up and clothed on a massage table, the practitioner channels Ki energy through the body by “laying on of hands” or holding their hands just above the client’s body. A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and well-being. Reiki is a subtle, natural and safe method of holistic healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. Reiki also compliments and works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques and has been effective in relieving side effects and promoting overall well-being.
