What it is:
Reiki is a healing art with its roots being Japanese in origin. The word Reiki comes from the Japanese word (Rei) which means “Universal Life” and (Ki) which means “Energy”. Reiki is not affiliated with any particular religion or religious practice. It is not massage nor is it based on belief or suggestion. It is an effective and subtle form of energy work using the life energy that flows through all living things. Practitioners understand that everyone has the ability to connect with their own healing energy and use it to strengthen and heal themselves.
How it works:
During a Reiki session the vibrational energy field that is said to surround and penetrate the physical body. is moved about to allow for a unique balance in body, mind and spirit. This balance allows the body's own healing mechanisms to begin functioning more effectively. The Reiki practitioner guides vibrational energies to bring attention in which the recipient becomes aware of the wellness that exists deep within his or her being.
