What is Reiki?
Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by gentle touch and is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one’s “life force energy” is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.
The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words – Rei which means “Spiritual Wisdom” or “Higher Power” and Ki which is “life force energy”.
So Reiki means “spiritually guided life force energy.”
A treatment feels like a wonderfully relaxing radiance that flows 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 wellbeing. It works especially well for stress and anxiety. It conniver cause discomfort or pain and can be administered to children and animals as well as adults recovering from surgery or illness.
A session is done with the recipient fully clothed, lying comfortably on a massage table using light touch or no touch if that is preferred. Reiki can even be sent for distance healing.

While Reiki is spiritual in nature, it is not a religion.
It has no dogma, and there is nothing you must believe in order to learn and use Reiki.
In fact, Reiki is not dependent on belief at all and will work whether you believe in it or not.
Because Reiki comes from the source of creation many people find that using Reiki puts them more in touch with the experience of their religion rather than having only an intellectual concept of it.
