The Japanese word – Reiki translates to ‘universal life force energy’, an energy that practitioners believe exists within and around the body.
A treatment feels like a surge of radiance that flows all around you. Reiki treats the whole person including the physical, emotional, and spiritual and creates beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing. There is increasing research evidence documenting the effects of Reiki such as lowered heart rate, blood pressure, and stress hormones; and increased immune strength.
Reiki practice is extremely passive. The Reiki practitioner’s hands are still for most of the treatment, moving only to change hand placements to encourage the proper flow of spiritual energy and resolve issues with this flow.
