Reiki originated in Japan and is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. It is a fantastic technique for reducing stress, promoting relaxation and healing.
It is administered by “laying on hands” (hands on or off the body) and is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” (Chi or Ki) 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.
Reiki works well in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.
If this makes you’re head spin, the trying thinking of the electromagnetic field that all objects have and which is scientifically proven. Each persons Chi/Ki/Energy is a part of this; it surrounds us and is within us. Chinese medicine has worked with this for 1000s of years and Reiki works by tapping into this energy field and the energy of the universe.
