KI - part of Rei; the vital life force energy which flows through all things.
Reiki (Energy) is the vital life force, motion and vibration. Everyone has the energy and the ability to lay hands on another and help accelerate the natural healing process. Through the process of Reiki attunements a practitioner enters an ancient lineage that fine tunes their energy to further facilitate the ability to channel energy.
Reiki makes its way to the area of the body needing treatment. People who transmit Reiki are not 'healers' but rather conduits for the energy that allows the body to harmonise imbalances and heal itself naturally.
A Reiki (Healing Hands) treatment will involve either sitting or lying with your clothes on. The practitioner will then lay their hands over several key energy centres in the body allowing the energy to flow to wherever it is required. There is no need to speak during the session but you may do so if you wish. You may feel warmth coming from the practitioners hands which is totally normal (they will be conducting energy!).
