Reiki is a Japanese word representing Universal Life Energy. When activated and applied for purposes of healing, Reiki addresses mind, body and spirit. It accelerates the body's abilities to heal physical ailments, and opens the mind and the spirit to the causes of disease and pain, the necessity for taking responsibility for one's life, and the joys of balanced wellness. The essence of Reiki helps fill - in individuals and society - the need to be in balance and harmony with the Universal Life Force. Reiki is a simple, natural, effective and non-intrusive healing practice. A Reiki treatment involves the practitioner placing their hands in a sequence of hand positions on the body. The most common immediate response is deep relaxation.
