What is Reiki?
The laying of hands on a human or animal body to comfort or relieve pain is a basic instinct and forms the foundation of all types of touch healing.
Reiki (pronounced ray – key) is a Japanese healing force meaning “universal life force energy”. Rei may be translated as "universal with Ki being "life force energy". This life force energy can be described as the energy that lives and acts in all created matter whether animal, vegetable or mineral.
Reiki is healing energy.
It is a healing system that is a safe, natural and holistic way of treating many acute and chronic conditions bringing about spiritual, mental and emotional wellbeing. These conditions include stress, sinusitis, menstrual problems, cystitis, migraine, asthma, M.E, arthritis and many more.
Reiki is primarily perceived as a practice for healing the body but, it is also a method for healing the mind and spirit.
As is the case with all alternative healing, Reiki should not be used as a substitute for orthodox medicine, it should be used to complement.
