What is Reiki?

Reiki is an energy based approach which promotes overall wellness. A trained, accredited Reiki practitioner uses his or her hands to transmit energy to the recipient. Reiki has been proven to help with pain management, relaxation and the side effects of cancer treatment.

Reiki is, in its origins, a Japanese technique for reducing stress, relaxing and promoting wellbeing. It is administered by holding the hand(s) on an area of the body. Reiki is based on the idea that a life force energy flows through us and if your energy is low, then you are more likely to get sick or feel stress. If it is high, you are more capable of being happy and healthy

The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words. ‘Rei’ means ‘God's Wisdom’ or ‘Higher Power’ and ‘Ki’ means ‘life force energy.’ So Reiki actually means ‘spiritually guided life force energy.’

A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person, including body, emotions, mind and spirit. Its effects include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing.

While Reiki is spiritual in nature, it is not a religion. It has no dogma, and there is no particular belief associated with learning and using Reiki.
