What is Reiki?
Reiki (pronounced ray-key)
is a Japanese word representing universal life energy, the energy which is all
around us. It is derived from rei, meaning "free passage" or "transcendental
spirit" and ki, meaning "vital life force energy" or " universal life energy".
Reiki is a Japanese form
of healing that is becoming increasingly popular worldwide. What makes Reiki
unique is that it incorporates elements of just about every other alternative
healing practices such as spiritual healing, auras, crystals, chakra balancing,
meditation, aromatherapy, naturopathy, and homeopathy.
Reiki involves the
transfer of energy from practitioner to patient to enhance the body's natural
ability to heal itself through the balancing of energy. Reiki utilizes specific
techniques for restoring and balancing the natural life force energy within the
body. It is a holistic, natural, hands-on energy healing system that touches on
all levels: body, mind, and spirit.
