Reiki is a form of energy therapy where the client remains fully clothed and lies comfortably on a massage table. The therapist places her hands lightly on the client's body or a few inches above. This technique allows the therapist to channel the "universal life force energy" (Ki or Chi) to unlock the flow of this same vital energy within the client. This restores, balances, and aligns the energy centers (chakras) of the body. This can result in physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual transformation.
Like massage, Reiki can also reduce stress, stimulate the immune system, increase energy, and alleviate the pain and symptoms of various health conditions.
