Reiki:(ray-key): As a Reiki master of over 19 years, my hands have been privileged to share the healing aspects of this ancient Japanese healing art of lying on of hands. In Japan, the word "Ki" means "universal life energy" and it is from this word that Reiki is named. Reiki is a form of channelling "Ki" energy for healing. Reiki is different to massage. Reiki clears, and balances blocked energy by laying hands gently and specifically over key areas of the body. This relaxing and mindful therapy is used for chronic pain and illnesses, reducing stress and for a personal awakening and awareness to one's own energy patterns.
