What is Reiki?
The word Reiki comes from Japan. "Rei" meaning "God's Wisdom or the Higher Power" and "Ki" which is "Life Force Energy". Reiki is actually "Spiritually Guided Life Force Energy".
Reiki accelerates the body's own natural ability to heal itself, on a physical, mental, emotional and spiritual level. Remaining fully clothed, the client gently experiences the Reiki practitioner's hands on or above, over and around their body, this "opens" the client's energy channels and helps to clear any blockages that may be affecting the flow of Ki (or Qi/Energy).
Reiki is a gentle, non-invasive technique and is one of the simplest, yet profound healing systems.
How can Reiki help me?
Reiki is an intelligent, positive energy, which addresses the area of the greatest need.
Reiki does not interfere with medical treatments; it may enhance medication and assist the body to healing and re-balance at an optimum level.
Reiki is the highest form of healing energy, is always safe and can never cause harm.
Reiki can be used on adults, children and animals - it calms nervous tension, fears, and subdues negative emotions. In the extreme it is an excellent healing energy that maybe used when people feel so ill that they cannot bear to be physically touched. Reiki can be used with those who are dying to give comfort, peace and assistance.
Belief in Reiki is not a requirement for it to work. Reiki is not a belief system, nor is it a placebo effect. Even if you do not have faith in Reiki, healing effects may still result.
