Reiki is a non-invasive & non-manipulative Japanese technique for stress reduction & relaxation that also promotes healing and facilitates physical, emotional, mental and spiritual well-being.
Reiki (pronounced Ray-Key) is a system of enlightenment and a hands-on Healing art developed in the early 1900′s by Mikao Usui in Japan. The word Reiki comes from two Japanese words – Rei and Ki, meaning Universal Life Force Energy. The term “Reiki” is used to describe both the energy and the Usui system of using it.
Reiki can be described as spiritually guided universal life force energy. This can have many interpretations but, generally speaking, Reiki is hands-on energy healing where the practitioner serves as an open channel for transmitting the “ki” to others. The energy is channeled through the hands to the client, which activates the body’s own natural ability to heal itself. Reiki goes to wherever it is needed most releasing blocked energies, cleansing the body of toxins, working to create a state of balance and harmony and promoting relaxation and healing.
Reiki is a particularly gentle technique because it is non-invasive and non-manipulative. Sessions can be used to facilitate physical, emotional, mental and spiritual well-being. Reiki is excellent for assisting in the healing of any physical, mental, emotional and spiritual issues of any kind and it gives wonderful results. Reiki treatments can be used for nearly all conditions, with little or no side effects. Some clients, however, may experience light-headedness, sinus drainage, increased gastrointestinal activity, etc.
Some Reiki practitioners are also psychics and mediums but this is not required to practice Reiki.
Reiki is used in many hospitals and healthcare facilities for pain and stress management.
