Reiki is the 'life force energy' that flows through us all. If this is low then we are more susceptible to feelings of stress and illness. If our energy (or ki) is high and balanced then we are more able to experience health and wellbeing.
"Touch is one of the fastest ways we have to both calm down and re-energize the nervous system and restore a sense of safety, according to Dacher Keltner, founder of the Greater Good Science Center at UC Berkeley. Warm, safe touch releases oxytocin, the hormone of safety and trust, of calm and connect. As Keltner notes in his book Born to Be Good, oxytocin is the brain’s direct and immediate antidote to the stress hormone cortisol—and oxytocin repairs any damage to the physical heart caused by cortisol."
