Reiki (Ray-Key) comes from the Japanese words ‘rei’ meaning universal and ‘ki’ meaning life force. Every living thing has life force or energy. When this energy is balanced, then our mind, body, spirit can stay healthy. When the energy level is low or imbalanced we are more susceptible to illness and stress.
Reiki is an ancient Japanese form of healing developed in the early 1900’s by Dr.Mikao Usui. Reiki has been practiced by healers and Buddhist monks for centuries. It rebalances and replenishes the energy in your body stimulating the body’s natural ability to heal itself. Reiki can ease stress, clear the mind and help to relieve physical ailments. It is not a cure for illness but can relieve symptoms and help strengthen the immune system which is often lowered by stress.
