What is Reiki?

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 derived from two Japanese words: rei meaning "God's Wisdom or Higher Power Wisdom" and Ki meaning "life force energy".  So, Reiki actually means "spiritual life force energy."  Reiki is excellent for healing any physical, mental, emotional and spiritual issues of any kind.

How Reiki Healing Energy Works ?

The body is more than just a collection of functioning parts. Since everything generates a frequency, the body and its organs all have their own energy field which continually changes. All conditions of disease are rooted in this energy system. If our "life force" is low or blocked, we are more likely to get sick. But if it is high and flowing freely, we can maintain our health and well being. 

Reiki Healing Energy provides means to balance the human energy fields (Auras) and energy centers (Chakras) to create conditions needed for the bodies healing system to function.

The Reiki practitioner assists the client to heal themselves spiritually, mentally, emotionally and physically by a simple laying on of hands. By the use of ancient healing symbols the practitioner channels the Universal Life Force energy allowing it to flow where is needed to bring the energy centers into alignment.

The Reiki practitioner must be a clear vessel through which the healing energy flows. He/She plays an instrumental part in the healing process, but ultimately it is up to the healee to manifest harmony and balance in their own life.
