What is Reiki?

Reiki is a Japanese word  universal life energy. It is a gentle method of hands-on healing that taps into the energy referred to as ki inJapan, chi in China, and prana in India.  Many ancient cultures embraced the belief that life energy flows through the body, deeply affecting our entire being.  Current research strongly suggests that energy does extend throughout and beyond the physical body, and that disruptions or imbalances in its flow correlate to physical, mental and emotional illness.
Reiki is not massage, hypnosis or a tool for diagnosing illness.  Reiki is a technique that addresses both chronic and acute conditions, gently and powerfully promoting balance among all the body’s systems.
