What is Reiki?
Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing.It is administered by 'laying on hands' and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If ones"life force energy" is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.
Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions,mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and a feeling of peace, security and well being.
