Reiki (pronounced ray-key) is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing, or self-healing. It was re-discovered by Dr. Usui in the early 1900’s. The word “Rei,” in Reiki, is interpreted to mean higher knowledge or spiritual consciousness. Tapping into this higher consciousness enables relief and healing.

The word “Ki” means Life Energy. It is also known as the vital force or the universal life force. As long as something is alive, it has life energy circulating through it and surrounding it. If your Life Energy is low, or if there is a restriction in its flow, you are more vulnerable to illness. When it is high, and free flowing, you are less likely to get sick. Ki is also the primary energy of our emotions, thoughts and spiritual life.

All healing energy has Ki, but all healers do not use Reiki. Reiki is a special kind of powerful healing energy that can only be channeled by someone who through training is attuned to it. The Reiki practitioner is a channel of this healing energy that is universal. The Reiki energy will adjust itself to needs of the recipient to create the appropriate effect. It is always helpful and can never cause harm.

The Ki (vital energy) flows within the physical body through pathways called chakras, meridians and nadis. It also flows around each of us in an energy field or aura. The Ki (energy) nourishes the organs and cells of the body, supporting them in their vital functions. Ki is also responsive to thoughts and feelings. When a person has negative thoughts about themselves these negative thoughts attach themselves to the energy field and disrupt the flow of Ki, causing a disruption or total blockage of energy in the body.

A blockage or lack of vital energy inhibits a healthy body. Reiki energy works directly to replenish the flow of Ki . It also works indirectly with the negative thoughts and feelings that are blocking the Ki and helps heals them as well to provide restoration of the normal Ki flows.
