Reiki - pronounced "RAY-key" - is an energy revitalizing method that promotes healing by activating the relaxation response and helping the body to balance itself from a very deep level. Reiki treats the whole person - including the body, emotions, mind and spirit - creating many beneficial effects that include physical relaxation and feelings of calmness, serenity and wellbeing.
While Reiki is considered by many to be spiritual in nature, it is not a religion. It has no dogma, and there is nothing that must be believed in order to use and receive the peaceful and harmonious energy of Reiki.
During a Reiki session, the client remains comfortably clothed and restful on the massage table.
The Reiki practitioner places their hands in a series of positions slightly above or on the person's body. Reiki allows positive energy to flow into the entire body through the hands of the practitioner. This balances and heals the energy in the body, using the client's own natural healing response.
