Reiki is a gentle yet powerful form of healing. It is an ancient Japanese method of hands-on healing that directs the universal life force (Chi) through the practitioner into the client. The practitioner is simply an open channel for this energy. The healing that results is a mind-body-spirit shift and return to balance, peace, and wellbeing. If one's "life force energy" is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.
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.
