Reiki (pronounced Ray-Key) is a combination of two Japanese words rei and ki meaning universal life energy. Reiki is an ancient laying-on of hands healing technique that uses the life force energy to heal, balancing the subtle energies within our bodies. Reiki addresses physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual imbalances. This healing art is an effective delivery system. The Reiki practitioner serves as a vessel that supplies healing energies where they are most needed. Reiki’s ki-energies flow out of the practitioner’s body through the palms of the hands while they are touching the recipient’s body.
The fundamental basis of life is the electrical fields of energy. Everything in the world, regardless of how dense it is, or whether it is tangible or intangible, is composed of electric charges that interact with other energetic fields (Haisch et al 1994, Hunt 1996). Human beings are not simply biochemical beings, but energetic and informational beings that interact and communicate on a constant basis both within themselves and with their external world (Oschman 2003).
