The word “Reiki” comes from the Japanese word (rei) which means “universal life” and (ki) which means “energy.”
As energetic beings, the higher the frequency of your vibration, the better you feel in your physical, mental and emotional body.
What many people love the most about Reiki is that it allows them to simply “be.” It is a few minutes of pure relaxation where the receiver can clear their head and release the tension and stress of their day. The energy transfer through Reiki may make people feel peaceful, relaxed and lighter, which allows them to be in touch with their inner selves and reflect clearly on their lives.
Reiki is used to remind our bodies how to go back into the “repair” or “self-healing” state of rest and reset. Reiki reminds receivers to be in the present moment. The positive energy transfer allows the mind to focus on current events, not hold onto past mistakes, and not fret on anxieties about the future. This will help with accepting how life is unfolding and will help promote positive reactions to situations, people and circumstances.

Q. Simple explanation, please — what exactly is Reiki?
A. Reiki energy is a subtle energy. It is different than electricity or chemical energy or other kinds of physical energy. It is the awareness that an unseen energy flows through all living things and directly affects the quality of a person’s health. When your life energy is low, it is more difficult to deal with stress; you may not sleep well and you’re more susceptible to illness. When your life energy is strong, you feel strong and can more easily deal with stress and are less likely to get sick. Reiki opens and clears your chakras and the ki (life force) in your body. On another note, Reiki can only do good and can never cause harm.
Q. What does a Reiki treatment feel like?
A. What one experiences during a Reiki treatment varies somewhat from person to person. However, feelings of deep relaxation are usually felt by all. In addition, many feel a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and surrounds them. As the Reiki energy encourages one to let go of all tension, anxiety, fear or other negative feelings, a state of peace and well-being is experienced. Some drift off to sleep or report floating outside their bodies or have visions and other mystical experiences. At the end of the treatment, one typically feels refreshed with a more positive, balanced outlook.
