What is Reiki?
Reiki is defined as Rei- meaning spiritual wisdom and Ki- meaning life energy. It is the process of “laying on hands.” Reiki is a healing technique where the practitioner channels energy from and into the patient to activate the natural healing processes of the patient’s body and restore physical and emotional well-being. However, because Reiki is dealing with energy, the practitioner does not have to actually touch the client. In fact, the client does not even need to be physically present for Reiki to be utilized and benefit the client. It is performed using intuition and feeling the energy movement in the body. Reiki works off the chakra system, similar to meridians in acupuncture, but with no needles required.
