Reiki is an energy-based method of healing with its roots in Japan, developed in 1922 by Dr. Mikao Usui. Reiki is a Japanese word meaning soul energy – commonly known as universal life force energy. This energy – which you may know as Ki (Japan), Chi (China) or Prana (India) - is a natural healing force found in all living beings. The reason behind our intrinsic ability to heal, if given half a chance.
Reiki has no religious affiliation. There is no lifestyle incompatible with Reiki. It is not a dogma. It is simply a method that aids in restoration of vital energy.
Reiki can help restore the body to its original state of health and balance from all types of illness - physical, emotional and mental - whether chronic or acute.
