Usui Reiki is a therapy often described as palm healing or hands-on-body healing in which a practitioner places hands lightly on or over a patient’s body to facilitate the patient’s process of healing. Reiki is pronounced “ray-key”.
The word is made up of two separate kanji. “Rei”, which means Universal and “Ki” which is spirit, energy or life force. The most common definition is therefore universal life energy. The practice is based on working with, and channeling energy, or a spiritual energy.
When you visit an acupuncturist they use needles to encourage energy to flow through a series of meridians or energy channels that run the length of your body.This energy is called ‘chi’. Reiki is balance. It works on all levels, the physical, spiritual, and emotional levels. Reiki energizes and heals the body.
