In alternative medicine, Reiki is a treatment in which healing energy is channeled from the practitioner to the patient to reduce stress, pain and fatigue. After Reiki sessions, clients often mention that they feel relaxed, calm, peaceful, more centered, better able to focus and more energetic.
Reiki has its roots in Tebetan, Chinese, Indian, Egyptian, Japanese and Roman cultures. The word Reiki is composed of two syllables Rei and Ki. Reimeans universal, it is always there, available for everybody to tap into. Ki is the energy that sustains life. Life force plays an important role in everything we are and do. If life force is low, or if it is restricted, one is more vulnerable to illness. When it is high and flowing freely, a person is less likely to get sick, but instead feels good about himself/herself, and the tasks at hand are welcomed with zest and creativity.
