Reiki is universal life-force energy. The world is full of this energy. The practitioner tunes into it and intentionally channels it for well being.
Sessions usually bring deep relaxation and a strong sense of well being. Many people say the experience is similar to achieving a deep, meditative state, during which they become more aware of their own body’s energy and flow.
Receiving Reiki is like getting an energy tune up.
