Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It 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.
The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words – Rei which means “God’s Wisdom or the Higher Power” and Ki which is “life force energy”. So Reiki is actually “spiritually guided life force energy.”
Today’s stressful lifestyles are particularly draining on our energy and cause many of our diseases, illnesses and daily aches and pains. Reiki is a very soothing and relaxing treatment geared towards channeling life-force energy back into your body to restore your sense of well-being and to assist in any self-healing that may be needed.
