You do NOT have to believe in Reiki for it to help you!
Reiki is a Japanese therapy for relaxation and stress reduction. It is a natural and powerful, yet safe and gentle hands-on healing art that accelerates the body's self-healing abilities (immune system) and works on the emotional, physical, mental and spiritual levels of "dis-ease". You do NOT have to believe in Reiki for it to help you. Some of my most amazing Reiki experiences have involved giving Reiki to animals.
Reiki means "universal life-energy" and is based upon Traditional Chinese Medicine.In its simplest form, the Reiki practitioner places their hands on the recipient with the intent of being a conduit for healing energy. The energy is radiated or broadcast through the practitioner's hands to the client. The client's body then unconsciously moves the healing energy to wherever it is going to be most beneficial to them. Reiki is the sharing of universal life force with yourself and your world as you choose.

Reiki is performed with the client fully clothed, in the face-up prone position. A typical session takes about 45-50 minutes and can be both relaxing and invigorating.
