Reiki is a technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is a natural method of healing and balancing the life force energy (also known as Chi, Prana, or Ki) present in all living things. It originated in Japan around 1922 and is now used throughout the world. With Reiki, your body relaxes and rebalances itself. Light hand placements are used on or near the body in order to guide the energy to all aspects of the body and mind. Reported benefits include the relief of pain, anxiety, fatigue, as well as an increased sense of relaxation and well-being.
