Reiki is commonly perceived to be solely a form of spiritual healing. However, it is more than this: Reiki is now also increasingly regarded as a belief and behavior approach towards personal fulfillment, whose principles and philosophy can explain and achieve better life-balance and well-being, and enable the furthering of self-development and discovery, as well as being a remarkable recovery treatment.
Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by "laying on hands" above or gently on the body. It is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. This is commonly referred to as one’s ‘Qi’ (pronounced ‘chee’). If one's Qi is in a state of imbalance or blocked, then one is more likely to get sick or feel stress. Reiki balances the body’s Qi, enabling better health physically,emotionally, and spiritually.
Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. It has been effective in helping virtually every known illness and malady and always creates a beneficial effect. It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.
