Reiki, in the simplest terms is Universal Life Energy. It is the flow of life and oneness! With that being said, a Reiki Practitioner or Master is someone who has been specially attuned via a unique process to this energy. An effective Reiki Practitioner lives a harmonious life, filled with peace and love for all. These practices are so that they may serve as clear, pure channels for Reiki.

Here's a small list of the benefits you can receive from Reiki:

You may be asking yourself how something which seems so simple can do the things described above. Personally, I have no doubt as to Reiki's effectiveness, for I have treated patients in person and they can attest to the burning energy they feel coming from my hands, sometimes they burst into tears in my Reiki room, overwhelmed by the release they feel. I can see the tension, worry, and problems they come in with and the lightness, freedom, and smiles they leave with. My experiences and those of my clients have fully convinced that Reiki is a wonderful healing tool, able to work on the deepest levels to achieve true healing.
After all, when we learn Reiki, we are taught that it is the universe which heals through us. The universe does all the healing. As humans we are all aware on some level that the Universe has infinite wisdom beyond our understanding. When you receive Reiki, this very Universe is working for you to help you move past your issues. This Universe, with its infinite wisdom can achieve anything, including healing you!
