Reiki is a Japanese hands-on healing technique used widely for stress reduction and relaxation as well as for energetic and spiritual healing. The Japanese word "rei" means Divine Power or Higher Wisdom and the word "ki" means life force energy. Ki is the same force as the yogic "prana" or Chinese "chi" or "Qi."
Reiki involves the laying on of hands and movement of the therapist's hands throughout the clients auric energy field. The reiki practitioner channels the spiritually guided life force energy to help balance and heal the client's energy field.
Our energetic field has direct impact and interaction with our physical and mental bodies. By helping to balance and heal any trauma in the energy field, we can directly affect the whole.
