Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is based on the idea that an unseen life force energy flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one's life force energy is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy. The name "Reiki" is derived from 2 words: "Rei" meaning divine wisdom & "Ki" meaning life force energy. Reiki is a spiritually guided life force energy that works holistically on the whole person.
