What is Reiki?
Reiki is a
Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also
promotes healing. It is administered by "laying on hands" and is based
on the idea that an unseen "life force energy " flows through us and is
what causes us to be alive. If one’s "life force energy" is low, then
we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we
are more capable of being happy and healthy.

made of two Japanese words - Rei, which means "God’s Wisdom or the
Higher Power", and Ki which is "life force energy." So Reiki is

treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit, and
creates many beneficial effects including relaxation and feelings of
peace, security and well being. Many clients have reported miraculous

Where does the Reiki healing energy come from?
Reiki comes from the Creator, Higher Power, God, Jesus or whomever you look to from your personal religious or spiritual walk. Reiki is not a religion, therefore the healing energies are open to people of all religions and spiritual paths. The healing energies from the Creator flow to the Reiki Practitioner as they begin treatment. The Reiki Practitioner has the training, tools and techniques to guide the healing energies to the client. The client receives the healing that is needed the most for them at that moment.
