Reiki, pronounced ray-key, is a relaxation technique that facilitates the body's ability to heal itself. Accomplished through gentle touch, or with the practitioner's hands slightly above the body, a warm and soothing energy flows from the hands of the practitioner into the recipient, releasing tension, creating relaxation and facilitating healing. Reiki energy allows soft tissues to relax and increases blood flow to the treated areas which in turn quickens the healing process. Clients and practitioners report experiencing: relaxation, pain management, reduced anxiety, improved sleep, improved digestion, enhanced well-being, stronger self-esteem, accelerated surgical recovery, reduced side effects from radiation/chemotherapy/medications, greater self-awareness, greater ease and satisfaction with relationships and heightened intuition to name a few.
Reiki was developed in Japan by Dr. Mikao Usui in 1922. The word Reiki comes from two Kanji symbols. Rei meaning universal life force and ki meaning energy. Reiki was brought to the west in 1937 by Howayo Takata and the popularity has grown exponentially in the past few decades.
