Reiki is an ancient hands on healing technique using the unseen energy that flows through all living things and directly affects the quality of a person's health. When your life energy is low, it is more difficult to deal with stress; you may not sleep well, and you're more susceptible to illness. When your life energy is strong, you feel strong, can more easily deal with stress, and less likely to get sick. Reiki is a technique that increase a person's supply of life energy.
Reiki is administered through the hands of a Reiki Practitioner with the client lying fully clothed on a massage table. The practitioner places his or her hands at locations around the head/shoulders, abdomen, legs, feet & back. The practitioners hands are simply held at each location, lightly touching. Reiki energy flows from the practitioner's hands and into the client's body & energy field. A Reiki session feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that surrounds and fills the client with feelings of relaxation, peace and well-being that promotes healing.
Reiki energy allows muscles to relax and increase blood flow to treated areas, which in turn quickens the healing process.
