Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. 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 stands for “spiritually guided life force energy”.
It 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 stressed, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy. It is administered by laying on hands over certain points on the body or the affected area.
During the session, the client experiences a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around him. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and well being.
Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. It is effective in helping virtually every known illness and malady and creates a beneficial effect. It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promotes recovery.
An amazingly simple technique to learn, the ability to use Reiki is not taught in the usual sense, but is transferred to the student during a Reiki class. This ability is passed on during an attunement given by a Reiki master and allows the student to tap into an unlimited supply of life force energy to improve one’s health and enhance the quality of life.
