Rei = Universal
Ki= Chi, Life Force, Prana, Energy, Animates all living things
Reiki (pronounced ray-key) is a gentle and safe healing modality where the Reiki Practitioner will tap into the Universal Life Force energy and channels it to the receiver for spiritual, mental and physical well-being, harmony and healing. As the body has its own Intelligence, Reiki will flow where it needs to go within the body and therefore despite placements of the hands on specific areas of the the body, some may feel the effects in an entirely different area.
Receivers of Reiki remain clothed and may choose a light touch contact or no contact, in which case, there will be a at least a few inches of space between receiver and practitioner. Some receivers of Reiki will fall asleep and be unconscious for part or all of the session. Receivers may report a feeling of warmth, relaxation, float-like, calmness, energy and clarity, however this can vary between people. Reiki is a holistic approach to bringing the body back into balance and health.
