The word Reiki translates into "universal life energy." It is an ancient spiritual healing art, involving laying hands on the body to soothe, comfort or relieve pain. Reiki is an extension of the natural instinct to place your hands over an injury or hurt. Reiki works on all levels -- physical, emotional, mental and spiritual:
It has the capacity to ease physical pain and to accelerate the healing process.
It is a remarkable stress reliever, inducing a profound state of relaxation.
It can bring mental clarity and focus, aiding in the decision-making process. It can generate calmness and serenity when emotions are strained.
It creates harmony and peace.
The universal life energy goes to whatever level it is needed
