Reiki is a spiritual energy healing art. The word Reiki comes from the Japanese word Rei which means "universal life" and Ki, which means "energy". So, Reiki is universal life energy. In a Reiki session, the practitioner is seeking to transmit Universal Life Energy to the client. The intention is to create deep relaxation, to help speed healing, reduce pain, and decrease other symptoms you may be experiencing. The method is based on a belief that energy can support the body's natural ability to heal.
During a healing Reiki session, you lie on a massage table fully clothed, without shoes. The practitioner will hold their hands slightly above your body and will allow energy to transfer to you. A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. You may feel warmth or tingling sensations as you relax.
Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing.
