Reiki is a treatment where universal life force, ki is channeled through the therapist to help balance body mind and spirit. Ki in Reiki is the same as Qi in the Chinese meridian system of acupuncture and as Chi in the moving meditation martial art of Tai Chi. In a Reiki treatment hands are just above or lightly on the body channeling ki to the client. The extra ki pressurizes the existing ki in the body causing a flushing and balancing effect. This treatment starts at the head, flushing out energy from the head down through the body and out the feet. You may feel deep peace, relaxation, or a little light headed from the treatment. Reiki is also known as a type of “laying on of hands” or “energy healing.” This treatment is done fully clothed lying down on a massage table.
