Reiki promotes stress reduction, relaxation, wellbeing and increased energy levels. Reiki is a healing practice that originated in Japan in 1922. The term Reiki is a combination of two Japanese words Rei, meaning Universal life, and Ki, meaning energy.
Reiki uses the ideology that the Reiki therapist/practitioner can channel energy into their client either by touch – with the hands on the body or just above the body – and this, in turn, activates the body’s natural healing processes restoring both physical and emotional health.
Reiki is not a massage technique, and it’s not associated with any beliefs or religious ideologies – it’s a healing option available to all.
The goal of reiki is to move energy from a low state to a higher, healthier state.
