Reiki (pronounced ray-kee) is an ancient Japanese healing technique that promotes relaxation, reduces stress, and encourages the body’s natural ability to heal itself. It is a gentle, non-invasive approach that works with the body’s energy flow, known as Qi (pronounced chee) in Traditional Chinese Medicine.


Reiki Meaning: Unveiling the Universal Life Force

The word “reiki” comes from two Japanese characters: “rei,” meaning “universal” or “spiritual,” and “ki,” meaning “energy” or “life force.” Therefore, reiki translates to “universal life force” and is believed to be a subtle energy that flows through all living things. Reiki practitioners act as conduits, channeling this energy to promote healing and balance within the recipient.


Understanding the Reiki Experience

During the session, a qualified practitioner will place their hands lightly on or above specific points on your body. No needles, oils, or medications are involved. The practitioner acts as a channel, guiding the universal life force energy (Rei) to flow through you, promoting balance and well-being.
