Reiki – pronounced RAY-key.  Reiki is a Japanese word consisting of two kanji characters – Rei means universal, also referring to the spiritual dimension and soul and ki means the vital life-force energy of life.  So, think of its whole meaning as the universal life-force which flows in, through and around everything.  Reiki originated in ancient Tibet and was rediscovered in modern times by Dr. Mikao Usui in the early 1900’s.  Reiki is a gentle, non-invasive method of therapeutic touch – a laying-on of the practitioner’s hands – onto a series of body points that increases a person’s vital life-force energy, releases blockages of energy, accelerates the body’s ability to heal and restores balance in the body, mind and spirit.

During a session, the client lies down and rests on a massage table fully clothed while the practitioner places their hands on strategic points of the client’s body, especially focusing on the client’s specific areas which need healing.
