What Reiki is:
Reiki (Rei-ki) is Universal Life Force Energy – the energy that surrounds us.
The energy healing technique of Reiki is a subtle, effective, safe, gentle, and non-invasive. Reiki uses Universal Life Force Energy (Rei-ki) for stress reduction and relaxation to promote healing. After a Reiki Practitioner undergoes an attunement process, he/she is a conduit for Reiki healing and is able to transmit Universal Life Energy to a client. Reiki strengthens the body’s natural ability to heal itself on all levels, physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually.
Think of the body as a hose while simply understanding Reiki. If a hose is blocked water cannot flow through and if the hose is clear water easily flows. Reiki is based on the idea that unseen life force energy 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. We want the life force energy in our body to be high and easily flow with life to keep us feeling happy and healthy and living a radiant life!
