What is Reiki?

Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. Reiki is a method of stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. The technique was developed in Japan and is administered by the laying on of hands. It is based on the idea that all living things have a special energy flowing through them called life energy. When your life force energy is high, you’ll feel strong and confident, could be more relaxed and capable of being happy, healthy and centered and less likely to get sick or feel stressed out. When it is low, you’ll often feel tired, be more easily affected by stress and less resistant to illness.

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”. So Reiki is actually “spiritually guided life force energy.”

A Reiki treatment is a way of increasing your life energy and it feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. The hands are lightly placed on or near the body in various positions around the head, shoulders, stomach and feet. Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. 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.

While Reiki is spiritual in nature, it is not a religion and it is still important to live and act in a way that promotes harmony with others.
