Reiki is a form of therapy that uses simple hands-on (or hands above without actual touch), to improve the flow of life energy in a person or animal. It alleviates stuck energy, and introduces fresh, new energy to allow healing.
- Many traditional healing methods suggest that illness is caused by a disturbance of life energy within the body.
- Reiki means “universal life energy” in Japanese, and Reiki practitioners are trained to detect and alleviate problems of energy flow on physical, emotional, and spiritual levels.
- It also takes the client into a deep state of relaxation..
Think of Reiki acting as a battery charger. The person receiving Reiki is better able to recharge his or her own energy with the help of an energy worker (Reiki practitioner). The practitioner is the charger and the person on the table is charging up their own battery for their own self-healing. The practitioner’s hands touching them is like the jumper cable we use to recharge and start a car.
