Reiki is a Japanese form of energy healing: “rei” meaning universal, and “ki” meaning life energy. Reiki is a holistic therapy that activates the body's self-healing powers and promotes relaxation for body, mind, and soul.
The practitioner channels the 'universal energy' - also known as 'qi' in Chinese Medecine - through their palms.
It is a subtle energy therapy, commonly practiced by light touch either gently on the body,
or slightly above it, or by distance.
Reiki helps you to shift your energy fields by improving the flow & balance of your energy centres (chakras).

How to prepare for a Reiki Healing Session?
It's advised to drink a lot of water before and after the session, to get the energy moving.
If you are doing the Reiki in person, make sure not to schedule too many activities after the session.
If you are receiving Distant Reiki, make sure to find a quiet space for you to get comfortable ready to relax :-)
How does Reiki work from a distance?
One of the teachings of Reiki is that we have an energy body with an aura (energy fields), chakras (energy centres), and meridians (energy pathways). The aura takes in energies, the chakras break it down, and the meridians distribute it throughout the whole body. Distance Reiki works according to an ancient principle called ‘the Hermetic Law of Similarity’ - which holds that we are all inter-connected and consequently connected to a WHOLE.
The practitioner links up to the recipient’s energy field during a treatment which allows him to send reiki to his physical body across space and time. Distance Reiki can be just as effective as experiencing one in person.
Some people even prefer to be at home, in their safe space, to receive Reiki.
