Reiki, pronounced ray-kee¸ is a Japanese healing modality that originates in Japan. The word Reiki translations to universal life (rei) energy (ki). Reiki is energy that flows through all living beings. It is believed that when a person’s body is in balance, “ki” (prana and chi) flows smoothly and freely. A Reiki practitioner directs universal life energy to wherever you need it, bringing balance to mind, body, and spirit.
In a typical Reiki session, expect to be lying comfortably in a quiet and serene setting. The recipient will be fully clothed and with shoes off. There might be a chat about intentions and any injuries or conditions. Reiki is given by light hands-on touch or hands off where the practitioner will hover the hands over a series of locations on the body. Your experience is unique, but most people experience moments of warmth and deep relaxation. Reiki promotes a person’s overall health and well-being and is a great tool for minimizing stress and promoting relaxation. The only thing you need to bring is an open mind and heart.
