What is Reiki?
is a Japanese energy healing used to enhance the body's natural ability
to heal itself through the balancing of energy on physical, emotional,
mental, and spiritual level.
The word Reiki comprises of two Kanji characters "霊 気".
Phonetically it is a combination of two Japanese words - Rei which means
"Spirit" and Ki which is "life force energy". So Reiki
is actually "spiritually guided life force energy."
