Reiki is a spiritual healing art with its roots in Japanese origin. The word Reiki comes from the Japanese word (Rei) which means “Universal Life” and (Ki) which means “Energy”. Reiki is not affiliated with any religion or religious practice. It is not massage nor is it based on belief or suggestion. It is a subtle and effective form of energy work using spiritually guided life force energy.  Reiki is a laying on of hands in order to balance energy systems within the body. It addresses both physical and emotional imbalances. An imbalance of energy within the body may be the underlying cause of many illnesses both on the physical and emotional level. The practitioner serves as the vessel from which the healing energy flows. Reiki activates the client's natural ability for the body to heal itself.
