The word Reiki is derived from two Japanese words – “Rei” meaning “God’s Wisdom or the Higher Power” and “Ki” which means “life force energy.” Reiki is therefore “spiritually guided life force energy.”
It is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation. It also promotes healing. Reiki is administered by “laying on hands” and is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one’s “life force energy” is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy. A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through as well as 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 wellbeing. Many have reported miraculous results. Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.
