The word Reiki comes from the Japanese word (Rei) which means “Universal Life” and (Ki) which means “Energy”. Reiki is not affiliated with any particular religion or religious practice. It is not massage nor is it based on belief or suggestion. It is a subtle and effective form of energy work using spiritually guided life force energy.
It is a healing technique where the practitioner channels energy into the patient by means of touch, to activate the natural healing processes of the patient's body to restore physical and emotional well-being.
Reiki is a great treatment for stress reduction and relaxation. Many people use Reiki for everyday wellness. Reiki is not a cure for a disease or illness, but it may assist the body in creating an environment to facilitate healing. Reiki is a great tool to use as a complement to traditional medicine and is practiced in many hospitals and medical care settings.

Each new idea or change in our world challenges us to adjust to the new knowledge and experience. Sometimes new knowledge has a bearing on our religious values and beliefs. As Christians, we search for ways to follow more fully Jesus' teachings and examples in order to draw closer to God. We feel it is important to be aware of the examples Jesus has set for us. Many Christians have adopted practices to develop the "Gifts of the Spirit." In Corinthians 12:4-12, Paul speaks of the gifts including speaking wisdom and knowledge and the power to heal.
