Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress relief and relaxation that promotes self-healing. It is administered through the "laying on of hands", and is based on the idea that an invisible "life energy" flows through us and keeps us alive. When “vital energy” is low we are more likely to get sick or feel stressed, and when it is high we are more able to be happy and healthy.
The word Reiki is made up of two Japanese words - Rei, meaning "God's wisdom or the higher power" and Ki, meaning "life energy". Reiki is thus actually "spiritually guided life energy".
A treatment feels like a wonderfully luminous radiance that flows through and surrounds you. Reiki treats the whole person, including body, emotions, mind, and spirit, and produces many beneficial effects, including relaxation and feelings of peace, security, and wellbeing.
Reiki is a simple, natural, and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that anyone can use. It has been shown to be effective in virtually every known disease and ailment, and always has a beneficial effect. It also works in conjunction with any other medicinal or therapeutic technique to reduce side effects and promote recovery, and many people have reported wonderful results.
