Rei – Universal Life
Ki - Energy
Reiki is an ancient Japanese healing art for balancing organs and body systems. It promotes self-healing, releases blocked/supressed energies or emotions, reduces stress, and promotes comfort and well-being. Reiki is administered by “laying on hands” and is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one’s “life force energy” is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.
