- What is Reiki
Reiki is the Japanese phrase for "universal life energy". It is a gentle, light touch energy healing method. There is no belief system attached to Reiki so anyone can receive or learn to give a Reiki treatment, the only prerequisite is the desire to be healed.
- What can I expect from a Reiki session
Reiki is administered though the hands of a Reiki practitional with the client lying fully closed on a massage table. The Reiki practitioner places his or her hands at locations around the head and over the body and feet. Tissue is not manipulated and the practitioner's hands are simply held at each location. A Reiki sessions feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that surrounds and fills the client and includes feeling of relaxation, peace and well-being that also promotes healing
- The history of Reiki
Reiki was developed in Japan in 1922 by Mikao Usue and brount to the West in 1937 by Hawayo Takata.
