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.

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 replacing negative energy, which we feel as things like anger, stress and frustration, with positive energy, in the form of tranquility and calmness. It changes the bad energy in the body, which harms to a form that helps. It does not involve any physical manipulation. It can be applied on tight stressed areas as well as injured, fragile and sensitive areas.
