Reiki is a hands-on therapy that reduces stress, promotes relaxation, and aides in healing. It was developed by a Japanese Scholar and monk named Dr Mikao Usui . The word Reiki, which means Universal Life Force, can be broken up into two words – Rei and Ki. Rei means Universal or Omnipresent- present everywhere at the same time. Ki, sometimes spelled Qi, is the non-physical energy that brings life. Many eastern cultures have an understanding of what this is and call it by many names. Christians call it Holy Spirit.
During a Reiki session, the Practioner acts as a vessel to allow the energy to direct itself into the client by the laying of hands. It is important to note that the hands do not have to touch a client for the Reiki energy to transmit. This energy then goes to needed areas of the body to allow the client to heal. Many clients have reported that during a session, or even days after a session, feeling positive changes in their body.

Here is what Sky says about Reiki-
Reiki belongs to no one. It is all around us. It’s how God made the world. Similar to how a mom places her hand on her toddlers boo-boo, and it is able to heal, we must realize that everyone uses Reiki unknowingly. It does not belong to any one religion. It is a Universal Life gift.
Reiki education merely teaches and disciplines someone on being aware of its existence, and how to become a vessel. It is not a power created nor destroyed. It doesn’t become a “power” that then is owned by the practitioner. It is a gift to those who attune to its constant flow.
