What is Reiki?
Reiki is a Japanese phrase consisting of two words: "Rei" and "Ki". Rei means univeral, spirit, ghost, soul, in the heavens. And Ki means spirit, the vapor, life energy, aura. (Ki holds the same meaning as chi in Chinese, prana in Sanskrit, and ti or ki in Hawaiian).
When you put the two words together you get Reiki which can be translated as the universal energy and the personal energy meeting in one place.
I am a First Degree Reiki practitioner. This gives me the ability to do hands on sessions for myself and for others. Furthermore, I can provide healing Reiki to plants and animals, as well as increasing the life force energy in food, water and medications.
A Reiki session is similar to a massage session. One sits comfortably in a chair or lays upon a table and the practitioner provides therapeutic touch. Typically, this does not include the physical manipulation of the tissues, but does include energetic healing via touch.
Reiki can be described as a relaxation technique. Since 90% of illnesses are attributed to some form of stress, the relaxation benefit of Reiki is highly useful in the process of healing.
