What is Reiki?
Reiki is the ancient practice of transmitting healing life force energy through the hands of the practitioner. It is based on simple, ancient healing techniques. It originates in Japan and was developed by Mikao Usui. Reiki uses specific hand positions, on or above parts of the body that correspond to the major organs and energy centers. The purpose of Reiki is to increase your own self-healing powers and promotes the natural balance of the body. Reiki is non-invasive and gentle.
During a session the client's own body is in control of directing only as much energy as it can handle to the places that it needs. It thereby restores the energy balance on a physical, mental and emotional level.

The client may experience some heat or tingling at the site of the practitioner’s hands during the session which is completely harmless.
