What is Reiki?
Reiki is Universal (Rei) Life Force (Ki) Energy.
The "Rei" refers to the spiritual dimension of one's soul.
"Ki" means vital life force energy that flows through all living things.
Reiki is a hands-on method of healing. It is holistic and originated in Japan. It was brought to America (in Hawaii) in the 1930's.
The energy is transmitted through the practitioner to the recipient. Reiki can be used to aid with relaxation and healing on the physical and non-physical levels.
Reiki can benefit people of all ages as well as animals.
Reiki is a complimentary therapy which works especially well with massage, acupuncture, energy work, psych-K and many other holistic and traditional modalities. It is helpful during sickness or recovery from surgery.
How does Reiki work?
The energy is transferred through the hands of the practitioner to the recipient. Ideally the recipient reclines, fully clothed, on a massage table. However, Reiki can be given anywhere, anytime, and can be sent over vast distances.
What does Reiki feel like?
Reiki promotes relaxation and healing. Each session provides a unique experience. Clients describe sensations including:
* Relaxation, calmness (often similar to the state one reaches during meditation)
* Heat (and sometimes cold) from the practitioner's hands
* Opening of energy meridians in the body (similar to acupuncture)
* Overall feeling of well-being
