What is Reiki?

Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered through the hands and is based on the idea that an unseen life force energy (ki) flows through us from our Higher Dimensional Self to the recipient. It is extremely powerful, yet gentle energy that can be easily channelled, just by intention. If one's ki 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.

A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around the recipient. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind, and spirit creating many beneficial effects that can include relaxation and feelings of peace, security, and well-being.

Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can receive. It has been effective in helping virtually every known illness and malady. It also works in conjunction with other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.

In a typical Reiki treatment, the Reiki practitioner instructs the recipient to lie down, usually on a massage table, and relax. Loose, comfortable clothing is usually worn during the treatment. The practitioner might take a few moments to enter a calm or meditative state of mind and mentally prepare for the treatment.

The treatment proceeds with the practitioner placing the hands on the recipient in various positions. However, practitioners may use a non-touching technique, where the hands are held a few centimetres away from the recipient's body.
