Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that promotes healing. Reiki is "spiritually guided life force energy" that is simple, while comprehensive. Reiki treats the whole person, including body, emotions, mind, and spirit. Reiki healing creates many beneficial effects and induces relaxation, feelings of peace, and a sense of security and overall wellbeing.
One of the basic teachings of healing with Reiki is that we are more than our physical bodies. We also have an energy body made up of our aura (energy fields), chakras (energy centers) and meridians (energy pathways). The energy fields take energy in, the chakras break it down, and the meridians distribute it throughout the body. There is an unseen "life force energy" that flows through us and causes us to be alive. If our life force energy is out of balance, we are more likely to get sick or feel stress. If it's flowing and in-alignment, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.
A Reiki practitioner channels life force energy for another person, which helps to clear out blockages and reset the energy system. It is administered by laying hands gently over the body. Reiki energy can also be sent to anyone or anything, anywhere in the world, including to a problem or challenge in your life. It can even help with the past or future. The healing properties of Reiki know no bounds.
Because Reiki is guided by Spiritual Consciousness, it can never do harm. It always knows what a person needs and will adjust itself to create the effect that is appropriate for them. It is always helpful.
