Reiki is a Japanese energy healing technique for stress reduction and relaxation. It is given 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. It can be given seated or lying down.
If your own “life force energy” is low, then you are more likely to get sick, or feel stress, and if your energy is high, you are more capable of being happy and healthy.
The word Reiki is composed 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.” How beautiful is that.
During a treatment, it can feel like a wonderful glowing radiance and warmth that flows through and around you. Some people may not feel this radiance but the energy will still flow through you. Some people see colours or images during a session. Reiki treats the whole person: body, emotions, mind and spirit. This creates many beneficial effects that include peace, relaxation and feelings of wellbeing and security.
Reiki is a natural, simple, and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can benefit from, from babies to the elderly.
