What is Reiki?


Reiki is a spiritual practice which uses a technique commonly called “palm healing” as a form of complementary and alternative medicine and is sometimes classified as oriental medicine by some professional bodies.

The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words – Rei which means “God’s Wisdom or the Higher Power” and Ki which is “life force energy”.  So Reiki is actually “spiritually guided life force energy.”

Through the use of this technique, practitioners believe that they are transferring universal energy (Reiki) in the form of ki through their palms and to the body of the person allowing self-healing and a state of equilibrium.  Reiki therapists channel the wise and healing energy from the universe into the body and spirit of a client, to heal physical, emotional, and spiritual injuries.  The Reiki Therapist does not do the healing; they merely act as a conduit for the universal energy to pass into the client.


A Reiki session promotes relaxation while healing and balancing the body , mind, and spirit.
