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". Reiki is "spiritually guided life force energy."
Reiki is a Japanese technique and is used for stress reduction, relaxation, and to promote healing by helping to put the body back into its natural state. Reiki is administered by "laying on hands" where an unseen "life force energy" flows through the practitioner and into the client. WE need Life force energy 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.
A Reiki treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing. Miraculous results have been reported to include helping known illness and always creates a beneficial effect. Reiki also works with all other medical and therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.
