Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is a technique based on the principle that the therapist can channel heat-generated energy into the patient by means of touch, to activate the natural healing processes of the patient’s body to restore physical and emotional well-being. It is administered by the hands in a process called “laying on hands” and is based on the idea that an unseen, “life force energy” flows through us for repair.

Reiki is known as the life-energy that flows through all living things.

The word Reiki comes from the Japanese word (Rei) which means “Universal Life” and (Ki) which means “Energy”.  Reiki targets the energy fields around the body to help the flow of energy and remove blocks. According to practitioners, energy can deteriorate in the body where there has been physical injury or possibly emotional pain. In time, these energy blocks can cause illness.

Reiki is designed to aid relaxation, assist in the body’s natural healing processes, and develop emotional, mental, and spiritual well-being. It is also said to help people cope with difficulties, relieve emotional stress, and improve overall well being. People who receive Reiki describe it as “intensely relaxing.” It has no side effects and promotes a happy, positive mindset which is essential to healing.
