Reiki is an energy healing practice that comes from Japan.
In Japanese, "Rei" means Universal Energy; it’s the energy that surrounds us and it includes material, soul and spirit. "Ki" means the Life Force that flows through us; it is recognised in many oriental medicines such as Traditional Chinese Medicine and Ayurveda. Reiki is the Universal Life Force Energy, channelled through the therapist hands to awaken a dynamic healing process.
According to oriental medicine, we are not only our physical body; we are also our soul, our feelings and our thoughts. In quantum physics, everything comes down to a root level of energy; there is no such thing as solid matter. The Universal Life Force Energy at all these levels, since these levels are interrelated.
