Reiki is a form of Energy Work. This healing Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation dates back to 1922. However, it’s roots are practically eternal and can be found in most every culture around the globe. Reiki is administered by “laying on hands” and is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through each and every one of us. If one’s “life force energy” is low or disrupted, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress. If it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.
Reiki treats the whole person; including body, emotions, mind and spirit. It creates many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and well-being. Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can benefit from. It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.
While Reiki is spiritual in nature, it is not a religion. It has no dogma, and there is nothing you must believe in order to receive the benefits of a Reiki treatment. So, if you are feeling stressed out, schedule your Reiki appointment today. You are certain to feel the calming effects of this healing energy after just one session.
