Reiki is a gentle but effective method of healing. Pronounced Ray-Key, it is a Japanese term for "universal life-force energy" or "healing life-force".
Our bodies have a bi-polar magnetic field that runs life force energy from our heads (think north pole) to our feet (think south pole.) This is commonly referred to as our Aura.
Running through the center of your body are energy connections, commonly referred to a Chakras. The chakras are energy centers that regulate access to universal life-force energy.
Due to stress or dis-ease these energy centers aren't able to regulate energy properly, which results in reduced access to healing life-force.
Reiki is a natural form of energy transfer that helps to enhance energy and your body's own response to stressors like illness or tension.
