Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by "laying on hands" and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us "life force energy" Energy medicine aims to help the flow of energy and remove blocks. The Japanese word '*Reiki* meaning soul, spirit” and “energy, life force”. It is a form of alternative healing as an energy field surrounds our bodies. DisEase arises when this energy is blocked or imbalanced, and manipulation of the field by a reiki practitioner can restore wellbeing. In Reiki the practitioner does not use his or her personal energy for this but rather channels universal energy to re-energise the field around the patient. A soothing therapy to restore renew and balance.
