With light palpations, energetic work and communication, this therapy enhances and empowers the body’s natural healing process to help the muscular and nervous system reclaim optimal balance, reduce stress and strengthen your body, mind and spirit.

Reiki is a Japanese gentle and safe healing technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by "laying on hands" and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy/Univesal Energy/chi or Prana" that flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one's "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.
The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words - Rei which means "God's Wisdom or the Higher Power" and Ki which is "life force energy". So Reiki is actually "spiritually guided life force energy."
