What is Reiki?
Reiki is a Japanese
technique that is a non-invasive form of energy medicine that balances the body: mentally, emotionally, physically
and spiritually, enabling the body to do what it does best -- heal itself. Reiki assists in accelerating the bodies natural
healing process from injury or illness, promoting relaxation and stress reduction, and reduces or eliminates pain. Reiki strengthens
the immune system, assists in clearing emotional or physical trauma, and offers quality of life support for those who are
aging or in hospice care. Reiki is Spiritually Guided Life Energy - a divinely channeled energy that’s at

move more freely, bringing balance within. These blockages occur when we have negative thoughts and feelings towards ourselves
or another person. It is inevitably our beliefs, thoughts and memories that create the reality we experience; not just with our physical
health, but in all other areas of life.
