What Is Reiki?

 Reiki (pronounced ray-key) is a natural Japanese technique that promotes physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual healing.  “Rei” means spiritual/supernatural and “ki” means energy.  Reiki isn’t a religion, but it is spiritual.  Spirituality is the belief in one’s connection with God, a higher power, spirit, or soul.  Religion provides guidance on how to develop one’s spirituality.
