Reiki, a spiritual healing art of Japanese origin, derives from the Japanese words "Rei" which means “Universal Life” and "Ki" which means “Energy”.
Reiki is a light touch healing practice that moves the recipient's system toward balance. The sense of calm that Reiki provides reduces the nervous system's stress response, restores physical and emotional well-being, and invites deep relaxation, allowing the body to heal itself.
