Reiki is a Japanese word meaning universal life energy. Reiki treatments can offer you a wonderful way to truly relax but Reiki treatments can also provide so much more than that, helping to heal your body on all levels: physical, emotional and spiritual.
Reiki treatments are hands on and non intrusive, usually the Reiki treatment is given with the client laying down on a treatment couch. No massage is involved and the client remains fully clothed.
Reiki is a Japanese term actually consisting of two words with varying interpretations:
Rei- Universal energy outside all living things, the highest spiritual consciousness.
Ki- Life force energy, inside all living things, surrounds all living things.
Ki as believed in many Eastern traditions needs to flow freely throughout the body. If we have an emotional trauma or a physical illness we acquire a blockage. This disturbs the path of the energy through our bodies and we develop an illness. The healthier someone is the more Ki they will have flowing through their body.
Reiki works to heal the energy blockages in the body and restore the body back to health, along with healing emotional traumas and basically balancing the mind, body and soul.
Reiki can be used on any condition.
