Reiki is translated as universal life force. The art of Reiki is a Japanese form with its roots in Shingon buddhism amongst other things. It is more than just a healing modality, it is a way of being and ultimately a path to enlightenment.
During a Reiki treatment, the practitioner allows themselves to be a channel for life force energy. This energy flows from source, through the channel and to the recipient, allowing the recipient to receive whatever level of energy they might require in order to bring themselves into harmony. This may occur on one or all of the spiritual, mental, emotional or physical levels. The energy does not heal in itself, but by bringing the levels into balance a healing effect is experienced by the recipient.
A Reiki session usually lasts for between 45 minutes and 1 hour. The cost of a Reiki treatment is Q250.
