Reiki is a healing frequency of Universal Life Force Energy. We know what Reiki can do, but not how specifically it does its work. We do know that Reiki opens the healing response in the body by inducing a deep state of relaxation. The natural healing abilities of the body seem to be stimulated and enhanced by the Reiki energy.

After receiving an attunement and basic instruction from a Master Practitioner, you can begin daily self-treatments, as well as give Reiki to another person.
