Reiki, (pronounced ray-key), is a spiritually guided, loving, life force energy which promotes a calm and peaceful state, stress reduction, and compassion for the self and others. The practitioner-based energy approach can be given as a standalone treatment, integrative approach, or to compliment Western medical treatment. The practice of Reiki addresses physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual matters. It is believed to come from the highest, sacred source and therefore cannot cause harm or be facilitated incorrectly.
Reiki is a gentle and simple process. The energy technique is most commonly facilitated by a light touch on or above the body by a Reiki practitioner. It can also be facilitated through meditation, spiritual prayer, or body focusing techniques.
Additionally, Reiki promotes present moment awareness and a recognition of an individual’s spirituality that flows through all aspects of life.
During COVID-19, Reiki is given distantly and is just as effective as in person.
The term “healing,” in this discussion, does not refer to a cure of a disease, but rather a process of personal life-giving transformation that is dynamic and occurs over time.
