Subtle and meditative, Reiki (pronounced "ray-kee") is a gentle, noninvasive, nonmanipulative form of healing generally used for stress reduction, relaxation, and wellness. It seems to decrease the stress response by increasing the influence of an alternate part of the nervous system involved in relaxation, known as the parasympathetic.
Reiki, commonly translated from the Japanese as universal life energy, is a spiritual, vibrational healing practice used to promote balance throughout the human system. Reiki does not involve physical manipulation or the ingestion or application of any substances, but works with the subtle vibrational field thought to surround and penetrate the body.
