What is Reiki?
Reiki is a healing technique based on the principle that the practitioner can channel energy into the client by means of touch or hovering hands, to activate the natural healing processes of the patient's body and restore physical and emotional well-being.
Reiki is the life energy that flows through all living things. Reiki is of Japanese origin. The word Reiki comes from the Japanese word (Rei) which means “Universal Life” and (Ki) which means “Energy”. Reiki is not affiliated with any religion or religious practice. It is not massage nor is it based on belief or suggestion. It is a subtle and effective form of energy work using spiritually guided life force energy.
Reiki does not require the client to believe in it for it to work and it can never be administered incorrectly. It has its own intelligence and goes where it is most needed.
