What is Reiki?

Reiki (Pronounced “ray-key",) is a Japanese healing technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing.

The word Reiki is made up of two Japanese words-Rei which means “God's Wisdom or The Higher Power” and Ki which is “ Life force energy". So Reiki means, “Spiritually guided life force energy”. Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of healing and self-improvement that every- one can use. It has been effective in helping virtually every known disease and illness. It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.

How does Reiki work?

This natural healing method vitalizes your life force and balances the energies in your body. The laying on of the hands directs the healing energy into the body of the receiver.

When we allow negative thoughts, either consciously or unconsciously to enter into our minds, they create a disruption in the vibrations of our energy. Reiki helps our body heal by flowing through the blocks and charging the body with positive energy. Negative energy is released, clearing our energy pathways and helping them to heal so the life force energy can flow in a positive and healthy way.
