Reiki means “universal life energy.” The word Rei means universal or divine wisdom and the word Ki is the life-force (Chi in Chinese and Prana in Sanskrit) or vital energy within all living things.
During a treatment the Ki (or Chi), the energy is channelled through the hands of the practitioner, which makes Reiki a simple yet powerful healing technique originating in Japan.
Reiki works with this vital force much like acupuncture, tai chi or yoga does, but in its own unique system.
Reiki heals on all levels of a person: mental, physical, emotional and spiritual, to restore balance, and enhance health and wellbeing.
During a Reiki treatment the client remains fully clothed, as Reiki passes through clothing. The client usually lies on a treatment couch, futon or sits in a chair if they find lying down uncomfortable.
The Reiki practitioner places their hands gently, in a series of non-intrusive positions covering the client's body. Each hand position is held for several minutes. The whole person is treated, not just isolated areas.
