Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing.
The translation of Rei~means higher knowledge or spiritual consciousness. This is the wisdom that comes from God or the Higher Power, which understands each person and their needs completely. It knows the cause of all problems and difficulties and knows how to heal them.
The translation of Ki~ means life energy. It is the vital life force or universal life force. If your life energy is low, or if there is a restriction in the flow, you are more likely to be vulnerable to illness. Ki is the primary energy of our emotions, thoughts, and spiritual life.
Reiki is spiritually guided life force energy!
