The word Reiki comes from the Japanese word (Rei) which means 'Universal Life' and (Ki) which means 'Energy'. It is a subtle and effective form of energy work using life force energy. Everyone has the ability to connect with their own healing energy and use it to strengthen energy in themselves and help others.
It is believed that the persons energy should be strong and free flowing. When this is true a persons body and mind is in a positive state of health. When the energy becomes weak or blocked it could lead to symptoms of physical or emotional imbalance.
