The word Reiki is Japanese and is usually translated as “Universal Life-Force Energy”. Re being “wisdom and knowledge of all the Universe” and Ki is “life force energy” – the energy which flows through every living thing and which is also present in everything around us.
Reiki re-balances and harmonises energy, thereby promoting healing which may be physical, emotional and spiritual levels. A Reiki treatment can allow someone to relax deeply and experience a sense of wellbeing which may last for several days after their treatment. The practitioner’s hands are placed on or just above the client’s body.
Reiki works alongside, but does not replace, conventional medical treatment.
