What is Reiki?
Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by "laying on hands" and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one's "life force energy" is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.
So that makes sense, right? I guess even though I had done a little research previous to my visit, I wasn't quite sure what to expect. It seemed a little far fetched to me that a person, no matter how soothing/calm/charismatic they were, could "heal" any ailments I had with a touch but it's about more than healing ailments.
