The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words. Rei which means ” The high power” and Ki which means ” Life force energy”. So Reiki is actually “Spiritually guided life force energy”. Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by “Laying on Hands” and is based on the idea that and unseen “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If ones “life force energy” is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.
