Reiki is a Japanese word for for “Universal Life Energy”. It is based on the belief that unseen life force energy flows through every human being, animal and object in the world. A Reiki practitioner must be attuned to universal energy by a Reiki master after which they are able to draw life force energy and channel it to the recipient. It is an alternative healing method that allows the body to heal itself naturally once energy blocks are removed. Reiki is not a religious practice and never can cause harm. Reiki treatments help alleviate physical, emotional, mental and spiritual distress.
