Reiki (pronounced ray-key) is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. Reiki energy is administered through gentle touch and activates the natural healing processes of the body to restore physical and emotional well-being. It is based on the concept that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and gives us life and vitality. A reiki treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance is flowing through and around you as it relaxes and balances the body, mind, and spirit. This holistic modality treats the whole person and creates many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing. Many have reported miraculous results. Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement.
