Reiki is an Eastern energy healing method that supports the body’s natural ability to heal. The word reiki is a Japanese term meaning “guided life force energy.” Reiki can shift this energy into balance so that our immune system can keep us healthy and help us heal faster. Reiki is one of several therapies based on the bio field, or a type of energy field that regulates everything from our cellular function to our nervous system. Reiki sessions can differ from session to session. Some people simply rest and relax while others feel different sensations from the energy shifts. Your practitioner’s hands are placed on or above the energy centers, or chakras, of the body.
