- What is Reiki?
Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by "laying on hands" and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. So Reiki is actually "spiritually guided life force energy" that flows within the physical body though pathways called chakras, meridians and nadis.
Reiki heals by flowing through the affected parts of the energy field and charging them with positive energy.
- How is Reiki performed?
The practitioner gently rests his/her hands over a person's body in a series of hand positions that covers the receivers head, trunk, legs and feet. Energy flows through the practitioners hands to the client's body. There little to no touch involved.
