Reiki (pronounced ray-key) is an ancient Japanese healing technique that uses the life force energy to heal, balancing the subtle energies within our bodies. Reiki addresses physical, emotional, mental and spiritual imbalances. During a Reiki session, the practitioner will place her hands lightly on different parts of your body, and some Reiki practitioners do not actually touch their clients. Instead, they will hover their lifted palms a few inches above the body. Reiki energies flows to where the imbalances are in the body, regardless of where the practitioner’s hands are placed, allowing for healing to take place.
