The word Reiki is made up of two Japanese words: Rei which means Universal or Higher Power. And Ki which means Life Force Energy.
So Reiki is actually "spiritually guided life force energy".
While Reiki is spiritual in nature, it is not a religion. There is nothing that you must believe in order to receive or learn Reiki.
It is a "hands on" technique for stress reduction and relaxation that promotes healing. Reiki treats the whole person on four levels: physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. It goes where ever the person needs it and Reiki can do no harm. How great is that!
