Reiki (pronounced ray-kee) is a Japanese word meaning "universal life energy". This is the energy of which all things are made. Life force energy flows through all living things, it nourishes the cells and organs of the body. When the energy flow is disrupted or blocked, illness occurs.
Reiki is a completely safe and natural health care method, which treats mind, body and spirit. Anyone can benefit from Reiki, whether they have a particular complaint or just need to relieve the stresses of everyday life. The treatment sessions last about an hour and involve deep relaxation in either a sitting or lying-down position. The Reiki practitioner then channels life energy through their hands which enables the Reiki to clear, straighten and heal the energy pathways, allowing life force to flow in a natural and healing way.
Reiki energy has four main effects.
