Reiki is described as guided life force energy. As a Reiki Master Practitioner, the healing energy is passed through the hands of the practitioner and is used to unblock the energy in the client. Focus can be placed on a specific area if needed, or just go around the body to open things up to release old energy and bring a state of relaxation to the client.
Reiki is the Japanese form of moving blocked energy in the body. I sometimes describe it as acupuncture without the needles or a massage without the painful kneading of the muscles. Reiki is effective for stress reduction and relaxation.
