Introduction - Ki life force energy & Oriental medicine
In traditional oriental medicine, it is believed that the human body's structure and daily activities are maintained by the life force energy called Ki. It flows inside the human body along the channels called meridians. Imbalance in this energy flow leads to the weakening of the body and mind creating disorders. Ki life force energy is rich in the air around us. It can be supplied into the body and balanced by specialized therapies and breathing methods. Ki is a Japanese word equivalent to Chinese Qi and Indian Prana.
Holistic Massage is a relaxing full body massage, using a range of gentle massage strokes. The body tissues, muscles, tendons and skin are manipulated by the human hand. The various techniques used detoxify the body and naturally improves blood and lymphatic flow, lifting the mind and the body as a whole.
It is a type of massage, which integrates Ki life force energy into its practice. The therapist uses gentle finger pressure to stimulate Tsubo pressure points. It improves Ki energy flow along the meridian channels, which liberates the nerve endings from stress and brings a state of calmness and relaxation. Often patients feel warm sensations rising up and down in the body during the treatment.
Reiki is a Japanese therapeutic technique for relaxation and distress. The therapist lightly places the hands on the various points on the body to reconnect the Ki energetic fields inside and outside the human body. Ki life force energy flows into the body clearing mental and physical blockages. It does not involve any physical manipulation. It can be applied on tight stressed areas as well as injured, fragile and sensitive areas.

Ki energy therapy blends well with bodyworks, especially with massage. Activation of Ki energy flow enhances therapeutic effect of the massage.
