REIKI- under lineage of William Rand
Reiki is a Japenese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that promotes healing. Reiki is administered by "laying on of hands" and is based on the idea that an "unseen life force energy" flows through us. It is believed that when ones life force energy is low, one is more likely to be sick, if ones energy is high, one is more apt to be healthy.
The term Reiki is made of two Japanese words, "Rei" and "Ki". "Rei" meaning our "Higher Power" or "God like wisdom" and "Ki" meaning "life force energy". Reiki is said to be "spiritually guided life force energy."
Reiki treats the whole person including body, mind and spirit. It is a safe, simple and natural method of spiritual healing and self-improvement. Reiki works well with other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.
