Reiki is a gentle, natural and safe technique used for reducing stress and inducing relaxation. This healing energy promotes balance to the mind and body by activating the body's own natural ability to heal itself.
It is based on the idea that an unseen life force energy flows through us. If this energy, known as 'ki' becomes low, or blocked then you are more likely to feel stressed or get sick. If your 'ki' is high or clear then you are more likely to feel happy and healthy.
Stress, physical injury and emotional pain are reasons that this 'life force energy' may become disrupted or weak.
