What is Reiki?
Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by the therapist laying his or her hands on the body to improve the “life force energy” that flows through us.
Many people believe that if your “life force energy” is low, then you are more likely to get sick or feel stress. If it is high, you are more capable of being happy and healthy.
A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person including the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual components that help relax and bring about feelings of peace, security and well-being.
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.”
Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. It has been effective in helping virtually every known illness and malady and always creates a beneficial effect. It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.
Healing the spirit by consciously deciding to improve yourself is a necessary part of the Reiki healing experience. In order for the Reiki healing energies to have lasting results, clients must accept responsibility for their healing and take an active part in it. You must also include an active commitment to improve yourself in order for it to be a complete system. The ideals are both guidelines for living a gracious life and virtues worthy of practice for their inherent value.
