Reiki is a natural healing art that uses the life force energy (or, chi) that is all around us to heal the mind, heart, body, and soul.
The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words – Rei which means “God’s Wisdom” or “the Higher Power” and Ki which means “life force energy”. So Reiki is actually “divinely guided life force energy.”
Treatments are done fully clothed either lying down on a massage table or sitting upright in a chair. Any touch is very gentle, and the practitioner’s hands will often be a few inches away from the client’s body.
Reiki is not a religion, and can be used by anyone. It follows five simple ideals (The Five Principles of Reiki) to promote peace and harmony in daily life.
Receiving a Reiki treatment will most noticeably leave you feeling more relaxed. Reiki energy works on the physical, mental, emotional, and soul aspects of a body. It will naturally flow to where it is needed most.
Reiki can help you by reducing pain, clearing negative energy, and releasing blocks in your body’s energy flow. It can also help with letting go of unwanted habits and thought patterns.
