Reiki has its origins in Japan. The word Reiki means Universal Life Force Energy. The healing energy of Reiki flows from a Universal Source through the Reiki practitioner to the recipient. It is not the practitioner’s energy being directed to the recipient. The practitioner is a trained vehicle for the Universal Energy to flow. The recipient naturally draws the energy where it is needed to release physical dis-ease, mental turbulence, emotional turmoil, and spiritual disconnection. Recipients normally lie down on a treatment table clothed or remain in a sitting position. The practitioner utilizes hand positions on or above the body. The recipient may experience sensations of warmth, tingling, deep relaxation and general well-being. Reiki Training is also available which allows for the application of Self-Healings and learning to practice Reiki with other.
