What is Reiki?
Reiki is a Japanese word, pronounced as ‘Ray Kee’, meaning ‘Universal Life-Force Energy’.
It was founded by Dr. Mikao Usui.
We live in a world of energy, that nourishes and maintains all living things.
Energy that flows in your body is your Life-Force Energy. When this energy flow is uninterrupted, there is a feeling of balance and harmony within the body. If this energy flow is blocked or disrupted, there is a feeling of stress and disharmony.
Reiki is a form of energy healing that works holistically, on mind, body and soul.
In a Reiki treatment, a Practitioner channels natural healing vibrations by placing his/her hands in a series of positions on or slightly above the body, in order to balance the Chakras and clear any energy blockages in the body.
Reiki is not a religion or a religious practice.
