What is Reiki?
Reiki is a stress reduction and relaxation technique that promotes healing. It originated in Japan and has been practiced for thousands of years. In Japanese, the word “Rei” means Universe or Spirit and “Ki” is referring to the Life Force Energy that flows through all living things. Reiki is a method of connecting this universal energy with the body’s natural ability to heal. When one’s energy becomes weak or blocked, symptoms of illness result. Reiki rebalances the flow of energy in and around the body to help it return to a positive state of health, naturally and on it’s own. Reiki is a natural, gentle, “hands on” healing art that heals on all levels—physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. By providing a state of deep relaxation, Reiki facilitates relief from pain and anxiety. It allows the person to experience peace, connect with the joy of life and empowers one to live life with meaning and purpose. The technique of Reiki enhances the body’s natural ability to heal itself and is an ideal complement to both medical and holistic healthcare treatments.
