Originating in Japan, Reiki is a simple and yet powerful healing technique that works to balance the energy system of the body, which can lead to improved health, increased relaxation, and improved well-being. "Rei" is generally translated as "universal" or "spiritual," and "ki" is translated as "energy" or "life force." When life force energy is high and flowing smoothly through the body, then the person is happier and more resilient to disease. Conversely, when the life force energy is blocked, they are more likely to experience stress or illness.
The goal of using Reiki to balance energy is similar to that of acupuncture or acupressure. However, with Reiki, the practitioner does not need any special equipment or necessarily touch the body. It can be done either hands-on or hands-off, and even from a distance. The healer simply serves as a channel or conduit for the life force energy.
