What we're about
Reiki is a Japanese relaxation technique that reduces stress and pain, supports the immune system and healing, and promotes a restful sleep lasting one night to one week after each treatment.
In Japanese, "rei" means "universal" and "ki" means "vital life force energy". This energy flows through all living things. Reiki, an abundant, gentle spiritual energy is not tied to any specific religion nor nationality.
Reiki, which is used all over the world in places including hospitals and hospices, aids in healing by helping people become energetically balanced physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually.
If you are in good health already, regularly applied Reiki treatments (about once a month) enhance your ability to respond to unhealthy elements in your environment and help you to handle stress. By promoting the harmonious distribution of energy, Reiki is an excellent form of preventive medicine.
Reiki complements all other types of medical and therapeutic treatments. Reiki treatment should not be used as a substitute for a physician, a practitioner or natural therapeutics or a psychotherapist. Reiki can increase the efficacy of other types of healing.
