About Reiki

Reiki is pronounced Ray-Key.

reiki-symbol

 

Rei means Universal, Higher Power or God-Force

 

Ki means life energy

So Reiki is the application of life force energy that comes from the Universe or God.  It is typically applied by “laying on of hands” – but can be applied over distance by a Level 2 or higher practitioner.  The energy flows through the practitioner’s body and out of the hands to the individual receiving the healing.  During a treatment, the recipient remains fully clothed and is seated or lays on a table.  Reiki can be used in conjunction with other medical treatments and has been reported to be effective with essentially every known illness.

Although Reiki has a spiritual component to it, it is not a religion.  Reiki will harmonize with a person’s beliefs, no matter where that person is in their life.
