Reiki – The Healing Life Force

Reiki is a form of healing that aims to trigger the body’s natural healing abilities for improved wellness. Originating in Japan, the word ‘Reiki’ is derived from two Japanese words: ‘rei’, which means ‘God’s wisdom’ and ‘ki’, which is ‘life force energy’ – the key focus of the therapy.

The theory is that stress and sickness are indicators of low life force energy, while good health and happiness indicates a high life force energy. When life force energy flow is disrupted, or blocked, emotional or health problems occur. Imbalances can be caused by emotional or physical trauma, injury, negative thoughts, self-neglect, or even toxic relationships.

Reiki treats the whole person, including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating beneficial effects that include speedy healing and pain reduction, as well as feelings of peace, security and wellbeing. During a Reiki therapy session, the practitioner transfers their own life energy into the patient by the laying on of hands.

As such, Reiki is often used in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.
