Reiki is a Japanese energy modality that was discovered by Mikao Usui in the early 1900’s. Its name comes from two Japanese words, Rei, meaning Universal or Spiritual, and Ki, meaning Life Force, or vital energy.
Its technique includes lightly placing hands on or above the body, identifying areas where energy has slowed down or have become blocked (Sometimes manifesting itself physically as pain or discomfort, tension or illness.) Then releasing those blockages and increasing the vibrational frequency within the body to cultivate self healing. Many of the hand positions align with the chakras and vital glands of the body. This technique is also useful in restoring a persons mental and emotional well-being.
During a Reiki Treatment, the client will usually lie down on a massage table, fully clothed. The experience one has varies person to person. Many have reported feeling a warm or cool sensation over the area being worked to a feeling of relaxation and ease.
