What is Reiki?
"The truth is we all have the ability to heal ourselves. We all carry the energies of healing within. However, we can sometimes do with a little support from outside of ourselves to relax and receive. Especially if we're highly stressed or experiencing feelings of dis-ease.
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 "Universal/Higher Power" and Ki which is "life force energy". So Reiki is actually "Universal life force energy."
A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person including the body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and well being. Many have reported miraculous results."
