What is Reiki?

Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. The word rei refers to a higher intelligence that guides the inherent functioning of the universe. The word ki (also known as qi or chi) refers to the nonphysical energy that flows through all living things – often called life force energy. Thus, Reiki is defined as spiritually guided life-force energy. While Reiki is spiritual in nature, it is not a religion. It has no dogma, and there is nothing you must believe in order to benefit from Reiki. A Reiki treatment is a wonderful experience, and has many benefits for both client and practitioner.
