Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that promotes healing.
The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words – Rei which means Universal and Ki which is life force energy. So Reiki is actually “universal life energy”.
It is administered by “laying on hands” and is based on the idea that an unseen energy flows through out meridians and is what causes us to be alive. These meridians are most often associated with an organ or physical system of the body. If one’s 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. Reiki clears and heals these energy pathways allowing the healthy Ki to flow freely.
Many have reported miraculous results for a variety of conditions. Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. It has been effective in helping virtually every known illness and malady and always creates a beneficial effect. It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.
Reiki is spiritual in nature in that it provides love and compassion to the client – it is not a religion. It has no dogma and does not conflict with religious beliefs.
