Reiki is a natural, simple, safe, effective healing system that uses spiritually guided universal energy, the energy which permeates our entire universe and all living things. This energy is channelled through the hands of the practitioner into the body and aura of the receiver. Reiki opens the mind and spirit to the causes of disease and pain and the necessity for taking responsibility for one's life. Reiki heals on all levels: physical, mental, emotional and spiritual to help return the body to its natural perfect state. Reiki increases spiritual awareness and progress. It is a means for each person to access the richness of his soul and discover his own great potential.
