What is Reiki
Reiki is an ancient natural healing art.
The term Reiki is a Japanese word and it can be translated as ‘universal life force energy’.
As with all Japanese words, each syllable has several meanings, so ‘Rei’ can be translated as ‘universal’, ‘divine’, ‘soul’ or ‘spirit’.
The second character, ‘Ki’ means ‘life-energy’, ‘breath’; it is known as the life force that flows through every living being. In China it is called ‘Chi’; in India, ‘Prana’; it is also known as ‘bio-energy’ and ‘orgone’.
The therapy is based on the concept that the body has an energetic field that affects to its health and proper functioning. This energy travels in certain pathways and can become blocked or weakened.
During a treatment Reiki is activated to run through the patient restoring the flow of energy, promoting balance and well-being on all levels: physical, emotional, mental and spiritual.
