Reiki is a Japanese technique used for relaxation and the reduction of stress. It is also well-known and used to promote healing within the body. The term reiki is broken down into two parts: Rei, meaning "god's wisdom" and Ki, meaning "life force energy."
How does Reiki promote health?
When energy is low, people are more likely to be ill or stressed, and when it is high, people are likely to be well and happy. The body always seeks to be healthy and balanced. Treatments produce feelings of peace, security and wellness. Reiki practitioners place their hands on or just above a person's body . The belief is that life force energy surrounds all living things, and if it is left unbalanced, it causes illness and stress.
Reiki helps us to grow emotionally, mentally and spiritually, giving us the wonderful benefits of health in its wider sense. Mikao Usui is the founder of the modern natural healing method of Reiki. Becoming a Reiki practitioner requires an attunement process with a Reiki master. This attunement process allows the student access to universal life force energy, meridians and balancing of the chakras to achieve a harmonious energy flow.
