What is Reiki?
Reiki is a Japanese energy technique that is used for stress reduction, relaxation, and for promoting healing. It is administered by light touch or by hovering hands over the client.
We all have a “life force” or “Chi”: 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 feeling rested and well.
The word Reiki (ray-key) literally means “Universal life force energy”, or “source energy”… I call it “the energy of all that is”.
Why do we use Reiki?
- Balancing the nervous system
- Compassionate healing for others
- Healing and soothing animals
- Healing and sending nourishing energy to plants/trees
- Sending love and compassion to Mother Earth
During a Reiki treatment, the practitioner’s hands are lightly placed on or above the client’s clothed body to administer a gentle, but effective treatment. The healing energy is non invasive and helps to stimulate the client’s own inner energy flow.
Its beneficial effects include reduction of stress, release of pain or discomfort, relaxation and emotional clarity. These treatments feel like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around the client, treating the whole person, including the body, emotions, mind and spirit.
