The term Reiki comes from a combination of two Japanese words—Rei and Ki. The Japanese language incorporates different levels of meaning, so direct translation is difficult. A simple translation of the words is that “Rei” means miracle or spiritual guidance, and “Ki” means Universal Life Energy. Combined, they translate to miraculous, or spiritually guided Universal Life Energy.
Since ancient times, eastern cultures have tapped into Universal Life Energy. Some methods developed to enhance the flow of energy are Tai Chi, Meditation, Acupuncture, and Reiki. The purpose of a Reiki treatment is to restore balance to a person whose energy has become unbalanced. Because Reiki energy is pure and omniscient, there is no such thing as bad Reiki energy.
Before the Reiki process begins, you will tell me what you are experiencing that you would like to release. Then, you will lay on a massage table face up, fully clothed, and I will begin the process of allowing Reiki energy to balance your energy. The Reiki energy will flow through my hands; I can either touch you or keep my hands above your body.
Please note that Reiki is not a substitute for seeking help from a medical doctor or a mental health professional.
