The name Reiki derives from two Japanese characters that describes the energy itself;
rei' (meaning "unseen' or 'spiritual')
ki (Chinese qi, meaning 'energy' or life force)
Reiki is a therapy in which the practitioner transmits a Universal energy to a person, whether from a distance or by placing the hands on or near that person. The intent is to help the body heal itself by raising the amount of vibrational ki (energy) in and around the client, reducing negative energies.
Reiki is also utilized as a preventive measure. Reiki can be practiced along with other complimentary and alternative medicine therapies, and along with conventional medical treatment.
In the United States, Reiki is part of complimentary and alternative medicine (CAM). Reiki is utilized in wellness centers, cancer centers, hospitals, and by individuals who wish to maintain optimal health.
Meditation is a practice in which an individual trains the mind or induces a mode of consciousness. This sense of consciousness promotes relaxation, builds internal energy or life force (qi, ki, prana) which helps to develop compassion, love, patience, generosity and forgiveness. Meditation allows you to enjoy a sense of well-being.
The word meditation carries different meanings in different contexts. Meditation has been practiced since antiquity as a component of numerous religious traditions and beliefs. Meditation is often used to clear the mind, energize the body, and ease many health issues, such as high blood pressure, depression, and anxiety. Twenty minutes of meditation is equal to four hours of sleep.
Sound Vibration relaxes the body allowing the body to heal. Sound vibration breaks up stagnation in the body by raising the vibrational frequency; therefore, healing spirit, mind, and body. Sound Vibration penetrates the skin, fascia, fatty tissue, muscle, bone, and the cellular level. Sound vibration releases emotional blockages and gives one a sense of peace.
