Reiki Level 1
Reiki Level 1
Reiki is a gentle, Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by "laying on hands", "palm healing", or "hands on healing" and is based on the Universal "life force energy" which flows through each of us and sustains us. The practitioner channels this "life force energy" through the palms to the patient in order to encourage emotional or physical healing. Reiki helps to activate the natural healing processes of the patient's body and restore balance, harmony, and well-being.
An amazingly simple technique to learn, the ability to use Reiki is not taught in the usual sense, but is transferred to the student during a Reiki class. This ability is passed on during an "attunement" given by a Reiki master and allows the student to tap into an unlimited supply of "life force energy" to improve one's health and enhance the quality of life.
