Reiki takes its origins in Japan, and it is a non-physical healing technique made up of life force energy that is guided by an higher source. The word Reiki is composed of two Japanese words: “rei” and “ki”, meaning “universal energy”. Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use.
It has been effective in helping virtually every known illness and psychological issue and always creates a beneficial effect, for example a deep state of relaxation. It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.
To administer Reiki, a practitioner channels life force energy through his or her hands unto another and a treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. This healing technique cannot be guided by the mind, therefore it is not limited by the experience or ability of the practitioner. Neither can it be misused as it always creates a healing effect, the worst it can do is nothing.
Remember also that while Reiki is spiritual in nature, it is not a religion. It has no dogma, and there is nothing you must believe in order to receive, learn and use Reiki.
