Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by a no hands series of techniques and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one's "life force energy" is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.
Reiki is given by the practitioner to the recipient while they are lying down fully clothed and comfortable. Unless straight after a massage, you will then be covered by a towel or blanket.
