~The Meaning of Reiki~
The word Reiki stems from Japanese kanji (ideograms utilized in written language of Japan). Kanji are based on simple drawings. The word Reiki is represented by two kanji, Rei (spiritual wisdom) and Ki (Life Force Energy).
(The Japanese kanji for Reiki Tensyo style)
It is administered by hands-on-healing techniques that have been practiced throughout the world for countless years.
Reiki is based on the idea that life force energy flows through all beings. If ones life force energy is low, we may be more likely to feel stress and become unwell. If ones life force energy is high, we may feel happiness and wellness with ease.
During a Reiki Session, the practitioner will work as a conduit for the universal energy (Reiki) to pass through their hands to the area needed for the recipient. This hands-on-healing method involves gentle touch or no touch as per the recipient's own comfort level.
