The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words - Rei which means "God's Wisdom or the Higher Power" and Ki which is "life force energy". So Reiki is actually "spiritually guided life force energy."
A treatment feels like a deeply relaxing wonderful glowing radiance flowing through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind, and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security, and well being.
Reiki is offered through light, non-invasive touch with the practitioner's hands placed and held on a series of locations on the body. The touch is gentle, light and comfortable; there is no massage or manipulation. You may feel sensations such as heat, tingling, coolness or throbbing under the practitioners' hands or in other parts of your body, or you may feel very little.
Crystals and essential oils may be used throughout the session to enhance healing.
Many illnesses first begin in the energy body and then manifest into our physical forms. Reiki is an intrinsic technique used to help heal the energy body which then creates a ripple effect helping to heal the physical as well.
