This is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. Reiki is an aspect of the life force energy whose nature is Light and Love. It is administered by “laying on hands” and is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one’s “life force energy” is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stressed. If "life force energy" is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.

Reiki makes such a powerful force on this planet; namely, the connection to our hearts. Offering the life force without acknowledging the heart connection is to minimize the very thing we are all longing for, unconditional love. This is the true spiritual component that makes our work so satisfying. This is the fundamental healing element within Reiki that connects us to all living things. A Reiki treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. It treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind, and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security, and well-being.
