Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by laying on hands using the life force energy that flows through us. The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words – Rei which means “God’s Wisdom or the Higher Power”and Ki which is “life force energy”. So Reiki is actually “spiritually guided life force energy.”

It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.
How Does Reiki work?
We are alive because life force is flowing through us. Life force, called Qi in Chinese Medicine, flows within the physical body though pathways called chakras and meridians. Life force nourishes the organs and cells of the body, supporting them in their vital functions. When this flow of life force is disrupted, it causes diminished function in one or more of the organs and tissues of the physical body.
Therefore the Reiki practitioner will gather the Qi energy, the Life force, in his hands and will send it to specific parts of the body in need. In so doing, Reiki clears, straightens and heals the energy pathways, thus allowing the life force to flow in a healthy and natural way.
