What is Reiki ?
Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is a form of alternative medicine called energy healing. “Rei” means Universal and “Ki” means Life Force Energy or Energy. When you put the two words together it means Universal Life Force Energy.
Reiki practitioners use a technique where the "universal energy" transfers through the palms of the practitioner to the client in order to encourage and facilitate the client's process of emotional, mental or physical healing. It puts one’s physical body in the best condition to promote healing by inducing the relaxation response. When people are anxious, Reiki can help relax them. When they are in pain, Reiki can help reduce or eliminate it. When people are emotionally upset, Reiki can help calm them and balance their emotions so that they can see their situation and problems more clearly.
Reiki connects the universal life force energy with the body’s innate powers of healing as it is widely now accepted that it is the body that eventually heals itself.
Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. 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 has been known to change people’s lives, increase creativity, and put one on their true path. It gives each person exactly what they need at the time. And that is what Reiki is all about: trusting in divine order; trusting in the process of healing and trusting that you will receive exactly what you need at just the right time. It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.
Please Note: Reiki is meant to be used as a complement to traditional care or as a personal relaxation or stress reducing tool. It is not a substitute for qualified medical or traditional care.
