Reiki is a Japanese technique that is used to heal physical and mental trauma, and to support mental clarity and spiritual well-being. In Japanese, the word "rei" refers to a higher intelligence. The word "ki" refers to the nonphysical energy that flows through everything that is alive, including plants, animals, and human beings—because of this, ki is also often called "life force energy," and is known as qi or chi from other lineages. The combination of these two words is what defines reiki as "spiritually guided life-force energy." A Reiki practitioner channels life force energy through his or her hands unto another. It raises awareness in and around the physical body where negative thoughts and feelings are contained. This causes the negative energy; such as stress, anxiety, physical pain, sadness, confusion, etc., to loosen its grip, allowing the touch of the Reiki healer to swoop in and clarify the energy pathways. 30, 60 and 90 minute treatment sessions available.
