What is Reiki?
Reiki (pronounced ray-key), is a non-invasive gentle yet powerful Japanese form of energy therapy that balances the body, mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually, enabling the body to do what it does best — heal itself. The word Reiki is derived from the Japanese words, Rei “universal” and Ki “life force or life energy.” Based on the idea that an unseen “universal life force” flows through each of us, Reiki healing is used as therapy for an array of emotional, spiritual and physical remedies. Popular for thousands of years across Asia because of the belief that physical pain stems from emotional, mental and spiritual states. If one’s “life force energy” is low, then one is more prone to being sick or to feel stress. If it is high, one is more capable of being healthy with a positive sense of well being. Therefore, Reiki goes beyond the symptoms to the root cause of the problem.
