Reiki (pronounced Ray – Key) means Universal Life Force. It is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is a ‘light-touch’ or ‘no-touch’ therapy technique of energy healing that balances the chakras and restores the body’s energy to a balanced and healthy state. Reiki works through healing the source of energy blockages and allowing the body/mind/spirit to return to its natural state of balance and well being.
Reiki can be used for positive energy only, and can never be used to harm anyone. This is the Universal Law of Reiki.
During a Reiki session, energy is transmitted through hands hovering above important energy centers (chakras) to release blockages and support healing, based on the individual needs of each person. Crystal therapy, relaxing music and sound therapy might also be incorporated during each session.
Everyone has a different experience during and after a Reiki session. One may experience physical sensations such as tingling, warmth, coolness, a feeling of lightening or leaving the body, or a momentary twitch as energy moves through the body. Most experience Reiki as a universally relaxing, calming and grounding experience.
