REIKI (pronounced ray-key)Reiki is a gentle, effective holistic healing technique for balancing, healing and harmonizing of every aspect of ourselves; body, mind, emotions and spirit. It promotes deep relaxation and the release of tension, providing a sense of peace and security, an awakening of awareness and a connection to the Loving Universal Energy. Administered by lightly placing hands on, or close to the body. 

Reiki is not taught in the way other modalities are taught, the ability is transferred to the student from the Reiki Master during a series of attunements, which opens and clears energy pathways to enable the student to channel the Reiki Energy from its source.
