What is Reiki? Short answer, Reiki is energy work. It helps unblock any blockages in your Chakras. Gets your Chakras back into alignment and into flowing smooth. The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words - Rei which means "God's Wisdom or the Higher Power" and Ki which is "life force energy". So Reiki is actually "spiritually guided life force energy." Reiki is spiritual in nature and not a religion, you can have any spiritual beliefs and religious beliefs to have a Reiki session done. Reiki is a peaceful practice that promotes harmony among all things in life.
