The word Reiki is made of two japanese words - "Rei" which means "universal spirit/ God's wisdom or the higher power" and "Ki" which means "life force energy".
Reiki (pronounced ray-kee), is classified as an alternative energy therapy and is administered by "laying on hands" and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one's "life force energy" is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.

It has been effective in helping virtually every known illness and malady and always creates a beneficial effect.
