Reiki is a Japanese form of stress reduction and relaxation, it works with the energy system of the client's body, and is safe and gentle. It can be used as a stand alone treatment or as a complementary treatment to traditional medicine. The client traditionally lies on a heated pad, on a massage table, and the treatment is given to the person while they are fully clothed.
Many ancient cultures embrace the belief that Life Energy flows through the body, deeply affecting our entire being. Current research strongly suggests that energy does extend throughout and beyond the physical body, and that disruptions or imbalances in its flow correlate to physical, mental and emotional illness. The healing art of Reiki (pronounced "Ray-key") addresses these imbalances to support your good health and well being. Reiki is a Japanese word meaning Universal Life Energy. It is a gentle method of hands on healing that taps into the energy referred to as ki in Japan, chi in China, and prana in India. The practice of Reiki is based on the teachings of Mikao Usui, who practiced and taught healing techniques in early 20th century Japan. Reiki is not massage, hypnosis or a tool for diagnosing illness. Reiki is a technique that addresses both chronic and acute conditions, gently and powerfully promoting balance among all the body's systems and the regenerative processes of body and mind. Relaxation, in itself has been shown to help restore immune function and improve circulation, enhancing healing throughout your body.
