Reiki is made up of two Japanese words, rei and ki. The word Rei refers to a Higher Intelligence who governs over the universe. This Divine Being is infinite by nature and all knowing. Commonly, Rei is known as God but has many other names depending on culture or religious denomination. The second word Ki pertains to the non-physical energy that gives life to all living things. In simple terms, it is also called as “life force energy.”
Reiki is a Japanese healing technique that makes use of life force energy to reduce stress and induce relaxation which leads to healing. It is administered through laying of hands to facilitate the flow of unseen life force energy. When this energy flows through an individual, it feels like a glowing radiance that flows within and around him. Reiki treats the whole person from his physical body to his spirit creating many positive effects like peace of mind, security and well-being.
