Reiki (pronounced 'ray key') is a type of energy healing which was developed in Japan by Dr. Mikao Usui. The name Reiki translates to 'universal life energy' and Reiki is a non-denonimational energy healing, which can help with emotional and spiritual well-being.
A Reiki healing session is performed with the client fully clothed and laying comfortably on a treatment couch. The Reiki practitioner then channels the Reiki energy to the clients body while placing their hands on or near the body. The benefits of a Reiki treatment can include a deep relaxation which brings about a sense of well-being and peace. Some people feel heat or tingling during a session, but this is not necessary for the healing effects to take place.
"As running water smooths the jagged edges of a rock until it is small enough to roll away, Reiki flows to the areas of need, soothing and supporting the body's natural ability to heal itself"
