Reiki is a Japanese energy technique and is based on the idea of an unseen universal life force energy which flows through the body. The Japanese word “Rei” means universal wisdom and “Ki” means life force energy. It is a holistic approach to wellness that addresses the mind, body, spirit and emotions. Practitioners use either light touch or run their hands through the body’s energy field with the client fully clothed laying on the table. Reiki promotes relaxation, feelings of security, peace and wellbeing. It assists in the improvement of symptoms that occur from imbalances in the body and can be used in conjunction with any other medical or therapeutic technique.
