Reiki is a Japonese technique that promotes healing and deep relaxation with a light touch. The word Reiki can be broken down into two parts to help understand it's meaning.
Rei meaning spiritual conciousness or universal light
Ki signifies life force or Qi as known in the Chinese tradition.
The essence can be described as guided universal life force. When energy gets blocked in the body, it can present itself as physical, mental or emotional symptoms. This subtle technique helps the body restore balance and nourishes any blocked areas by activating the body's innate ability to heal.
A typical session lasts 60 minutes preceded by a brief discussion of any areas of concern. Comfortable clothing is recommended.
