Reiki is a natural system of energy healing. It involves the transfer of energy from practitioner to recipient to enhance the body’s natural ability to heal itself through the balancing of energy. This energy is the life force that permeates the universe. Reiki utilizes specific techniques for restoring and balancing the natural life force energy within the body. It is a hands-on energy healing system that works on all levels of existence : body, mind, and spirit.
Reiki flows through the practitioner but is not generated by the practitioner. Giving treatments does not deplete the Reiki practitioners own energy supplies. Advanced practitioners can do treatments without physical contact. Practitioners can also work remotely from any distance.
Reiki (pronounced ray-key) is a Japanese word representing universal life energy, the energy which is all around us. The word Reiki in Japanese is made of two words – ‘Rei’ meaning ‘Universal’ and ‘Ki’ meaning ‘Life force Energy’ or ‘Prana’.
Dr. Mikao Usui developed this simple but powerful energy healing system after years of study of spiritual healing of many kinds. He received the ability to heal with Reiki energy during a spiritual initiation after long fasting and meditation on one of Japan’s sacred mountains.

Advanced practitioners are able to give treatments without touching the recipient. Even remote they are able to give distant treatments from any part of the world.
