The word REIKI is Japanese, Rei meaning universal, and Ki meaning life energy. This vital energy flows through all living things and can be activated for the purpose of healing on all levels, spiritual, physical, and emotional.
The reiki practitioner acts as a channel for this life energy, which the recipient of the treatment draws via the healer activating the body's natural ability to heal itself. The recipient lies on the treatment couch fully clothed and covered with a light blanket. The therapist gently places their hands in various positions on the clients body, enabling the recipient to draw the energy where is most needed. The pressure is very light and is an ideal treatment for any age group, men women or children.
One may experience warmth, cool breezes, tingling, seeing beautiful colours, or just falling asleep, as the treatment is deeply relaxing
