Reiki, an ancient healing treatment means "spiritually guided life force energy". It restores energy, balance, and vitality by relieving the physical and emotional effects of stress. Reiki is powerful, yet wonderfully gentle and nurturing. In Reiki, a deep state of relaxation is induced and acts through the autonomic nervous system to lower blood pressure and heart rates, and to relieve tension anxiety. This state of relaxation also augments the ability of the immune system and encourages healing at all levels.
In a Reiki session, the client is clothed and light to no pressure is used on the body.
