Reiki

Reiki healing is a holistic energy healing practice that is based on the concept of channeling universal life force energy to promote balance, relaxation, and overall well-being. Developed in Japan in the early 20th century by Mikao Usui, Reiki is often considered a complementary therapy alongside traditional medical treatments.

The word "Reiki" is derived from two Japanese words: "rei," which means universal or spiritual, and "ki," which means life force energy (similar to the concept of "qi" or "chi" in traditional Chinese medicine). The practice involves a practitioner acting as a conduit for this healing energy, which flows through their hands and into the recipient's body.

The human body contains a natural life force energy that sustains physical, emotional, and mental well-being. When this energy flows freely and harmoniously, health is maintained. However, stress, negative emotions, trauma, and other factors can disrupt this energy flow, leading to imbalances and even illness. During a Reiki session, the practitioner gently places their hands on or near various parts of the body. The healing life-force energy of Reiki flows through the practitioner's hands into the recipient's body and energy field. The Reiki energy then moves naturally to where it is most needed, addressing imbalances and promoting relaxation.
