Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. The word Reiki comes from the Japanese word (Rei) which means “Universal Life” and (Ki) which means “Energy”. Reiki practitioners channel energy in a particular pattern to heal and harmonize.
Reiki energy can have several basic effects: it can bring about deep relaxation, release energy blockages, detoxify the system, provide new vitality in the form of healing universal life energy, and increase the vibrational frequency of the body.
Reiki is a safe, gentle, non-invasive form of hands-on or distance healing. Reiki practitioners channel Ki (energy) to the receivers for rebalancing. Reiki practitioners differ from acupuncturists in that they do not try to unblock a person’s Ki, but to channel the Ki of the universe so that the person begins their own healing process.
The key is to understand that Reiki can help enrich your life, possibly making it easier to experience happiness, health, and balance on all levels. Reiki is Universal life force energy - that which sustains life and promotes healing in all living things.
Since the word Reiki means Universal Life Force Energy, it (strictly speaking) refers to the energy and not the specific techniques taught by Reiki Masters. The limits to Reiki seem to be in the recipient's willingness to cast off old habits and patterns, to accept change and to accept healing. The other meaning for healing, used in the practice of Reiki as well as other related areas, is the return to greater wholeness. (Please observe that Reiki should never be used instead of medical treatment, it should be used as a compliment and a way to become and remain healthy.)
