Simply put...Reiki is life force energy, but what does that mean?
Reiki was discovered in Japan by Mikao Usui and it means Universal Energy. A powerful yet gentle energy treatment where energy is channelled through the practitioner's hands to the recipient.
Everything in the Universe is made up of energy - science has now proven this through quantum physics.
Human beings are made up of energy, each person vibrating at their own individual level. So if we are energy it makes sense that we can send out and receive energy.
The Reiki experience is unique to each individual. Energy passes through the practitioner's hands to places within the physical body, energetic bodies (aura) and energy centres (chakras).
It has its own 'knowing' compass - finding its way to exactly where the healing is needed. It is also a simple way to stop energy loss and replenish energy in a loving way. When your energy is depleted, Reiki will restore the feelings of good health, happiness and general well-being.
Energy healing occurs on all levels...
Reiki is a complementary therapy and can be integrated with other physical healing/treatments or modalities to promote total body mind and spirit healing.
Reiki is not massage and the client is fully clothed during their treatment.
