Reiki

Reiki is a simple yet powerful system of natural healing.  It enhances the connection an individual has with the Universal life force energy that flows through all living things thereby stimulating their body's own natural healing ability. 

The word Reiki is defined as universal or Spirit guided, life force energy.  Broken down, Rei means universal, and Ki means vital life force energy; that which flows through all living things.  Reiki is always present, but most people are not aware of it until the connection is enhanced during training.  Through the attunement process, a Reiki Master opens the student's channel, allowing the Reiki energy to flow.  Once the channel is opened, the student's sensitivity to energy is heightened and he is able to give the healing energy to himself and others. 

Reiki energy is transferred through the hands.  The healer or channel places his hands on or slightly above the client's body and the energy begins to flow.   It fills the Reiki channel's body first then flows out through the channel's hands into the individual who is receiving the healing.  Reiki energizes the healer first and the client second. Since the healer is using Universal life force energy and not his/her own, he/she is energized and not depleted. 

            Reiki promotes relaxation and can be beneficial both emotionally and physically.  Its uses have ranged from eliminating a headache to reducing the side effects of Chemo-therapy.  Since Reiki helps to stimulate the body's own natural healing process, its applications are endless.  It is simple to use, non-invasive, and can be used along with other forms of health care.
