What is Reiki?

Reiki is:

Reiki is an ancient Japanese technique that promotes stress reduction and relaxation. It is a simple, safe and supportive energy therapy that aims to bring balance to your body, mind and soul, as well as to stimulate the bodys natural healing ability.

It is administered by laying on hands and is based on the idea that an unseen life force energy flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If ones 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 word Reiki is made of two Japanese words Rei which means Gods Wisdom or the Higher Power and Ki which is life force energy. So Reiki is actually spiritually guided life force energy.

More on Reiki:
Reiki does not demand a diagnosis. Reiki energy is intelligent and capable of making its own diagnosis. It heals at a level that is deeper than the physical body. Reiki sees disease as an energy block. It identifies the blocks and proceeds to eliminate them. Once the blocks are destroyed, the energy flows undeterred. The smooth flow of energy restores the patient to health.

I use crystals to enhance the healing process. This is done by placing crystals on each of the 7 major chakra points.


Reiki is a wonderful gift. What I love most about Reiki is that it can be used to help groups of people or even global crises. This is just one of the great benefits of Reiki which makes it such a wonderful technique for the new millennium. It allows individuals and groups to do something positive about the challenging situations we see on the news involving so many people all over the planet. Reiki can be used to reduce suffering and help people anywhere in the world. It also promotes healing of Mother Earth.
