Reiki refers to a technique of Japanese origin, designed to reduce stress, promote relaxation and result in healing. It’s administered through the hands, predicated on the belief in an invisible ‘life for energy’ flowing through each and every one of us, an energy that results in our being alive in the first place. Should the ‘life force energy’ or a person below, the person is likelier to feel stressed out or to become ill; should this energy be high, the person is likely to be healthy and happy.
‘Reiki’ the word is composed of two words in Japanese, the first ‘Rei’ meaning ‘Higher Power or God’s Wisdom,’ the second, ‘Ki’ meaning ‘life force energy.’ Reiki is, therefore ‘life force energy guided by God’s wisdom.’

Reiki skills are passed on in the course of an ‘attunement’ conducted by reiki masters, allowing students access to unlimited supplies of healing energy, empowering them to improve their own health as well as others’, giving them the skills to enhance the general quality of life.
The use of Reiki does not depend on a practitioner’s intellectual abilities or degree of spiritual development, being, as a result, available to all who are willing to receive. Reiki has successfully been taught to a vast multitude of people of varying ages and from different backgrounds.
Reiki may be spiritual in its nature, but it is by no means a religion, possessing no dogmas, requiring no supernatural beliefs before you can learn how to use it. Reiki does not depend on any belief; it will work regardless of whether or not you believe it will. Reiki has a divine origin, coming from God. Therefore, people of all faiths use it, finding that it enriches their relationship with their existing religious beliefs in a visceral rather than intellectual way.
Reiki is a religion, but it still teaches us to act and live in ways that promote harmony with ourselves and others. Advanced Reiki practitioners promote the living of life based on ethical ideals, ideas that promote harmony and peace, ideals which are universal amongst nearly all cultures.
