Reiki (ray-KEE) is a type of Japanese energy-based bodywork that is gentle, natural, and non-invasive. It works on the chakras, which are energy centers along the spine. Reiki addresses both chronic and acute conditions by gently promoting the normal regenerative processes of the body and mind as well as promoting harmony among the body’s systems.
Reiki means “universal life force energy” – the ki/chi/qi, which flows through all living things. It has no religious affiliation and requires no special belief system to be effective. Reiki is holistic and treats the mind, body, and spirit. It can complement and enhance traditional medical treatment methods.
Treatment is usually hands-on or just above the body with the client fully clothed. A session generates a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Many people report a sense of relaxation and a feeling of balance and well-being after a session.

A holistic perspective sees health as a dynamic state of balance with considerable resilience in the overall system. A healthy person can withstand a certain amount of stress and bounce back. This is because the human body’s ability to heal includes various self-regulating mechanisms that maintain overall balance, which is known as homeostasis.
