Reiki is an ancient healing art that was re-discovered by Dr. Mikao Usui in Japan in the late 1800's. Reiki is a Japanese word for Universal Life Energy.
Rei means the universal transcendent Spirit--the source of endless and inexhaustible divine energy. Ki (Chi) is the life force energy that resides in us and
in all created matter. The intelligence of the Rei directs the Ki to bring healing on all levels of our being and for our highest good. Practitioners allow
themselves to be taught and guided by Reiki to focus this energy into those requesting healing. Healing energy enters the practitioner through the upper level
chakras and flows out the hands. Hands are placed on or above the recipient with the intention of healing and then the Reiki energy begins to flow.
Reiki is highly beneficial for stress management and deep relaxation and achieves this by balancing
the life energies of the body, emotions, and mind.
