The word Reiki embraces two Japanese Words:
"Rei" which means "Wisdom" or "Higher Power"
and "Ki" which means "Life Force Energy".
Reiki is a gentle, non-invasive system of natural healing by which a Practitioner transmits subtle universal energy through the body by gently placing hands on or above a client in a series of positions which correspond to the body's energy centers or Chakras and major endocrine glands and organs.
Reiki promotes relaxation and stress reduction which accentuates the healing process encouraging wholeness of mind, body and spirit. As such, it complements medical care and psychological counseling and is provided in many clinical and hospice environments.
