The word Reiki comes from “Rei” meaning God’s wisdom or higher power, and “Ki” meaning life force energy. Combined, Reiki means “spiritually guided life force energy.”It is a technique of healing, stress reduction, pain management, and relaxation that taps into the “life force” aka prana energy. It treats the whole person, including body, mind, emotion, and spirit. Reiki flows from the practitioners hands into the client. The practitioner places their hands on and/or above the clients body in a series of hand positions from the top of the head down to the feet. While some people only experience warmth and relaxation others have had vivid flashbacks and felt the energy pulsing through their body. It’s good to not have any expectations and just enjoy the treatment. Reiki works weather you have an intense experience or not and it may take a few sessions to feel the full benefits.
If your life force energy is high and its flow through the body is free and unrestricted, life flows smoothly for you. If it is low, or if you suffer from energy blockages, you may suffer from physical and psychological problems and unwanted life situations.
