What is it?
Reiki is a spiritual healing art with its roots in Japanese origin. The word Reiki comes from the Japanese word (Rei) which means “Universal Life” and (Ki) which means “Energy”. ... Reiki is the life energy that flows through all living things.
The method of receiving Reiki is simple. The recipient remains clothed
and lies on a couch or sits on a chair and relaxes. The practitioner
gently places their hands in a series of non-intrusive positions on or
near the body. There is no massage or manipulation. The whole person is
treated rather than specific areas. Sessions can take 45 minutes to an
hour-and-a-half, depending on the client’s needs.
How does it work?
