The word Reiki is made of two Japense words: "Rei" meaning "God's wisdom or the higher power" and "Ki" meaning "life force energy". It is transmitted from the untapped resevoir of energy that surrounds us in the universe, in it's purest form. As a therapist places their hands on (or over) a client and energetic connection is formed through the therapist as the client draws in the energy they need for the healing treatment. The human body is an intelligent organism that knows what it requires to heal. By original design it is created to self heal through cellular regeneration.
Reiki therapy has grown to become an important integrative therapy in many American hospitals including Beth Israel, New York Presbyterian Hospital, Yale-New Haven Hospital, Johns Hopkins , Duke Integrated Medicine, Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, Yale University, Hartford Hospital, Columbia University Medical Center and is offered in Veteran's Hospitals nationwide.
The benefits or Reiki are relaxation, pain relief, and accelerated healing from sickness and injury. The goal is to improve the flow and balance of energy (or "Ki") in the body.
