Reiki is Japanese for universal life energy source.
What one can expect
from a Reiki session:
  • The client is asked to lay on the Reiki table. Clothes remain on.
  • Soft music or body-tuning sounds play in the background; a gentle prayer is said.

  • The practitioner places her hands lightly on the body.

  • There are 12 traditional hand placements.

  • Over the course of an hour or more, the Reiki energy flows through the client's body.

  • Reiki "heals" or balances the energetic and physical system.

  • Experience an altered state of consciousness.

Dr. Mikao Usui
Dr. Mikao Usui founded Reiki in 1920. The story is told that Dr. Usui studied world religions, medicine, and psychology for many years to discover the mystery of true healing.
 
He had trained as a Zen Buddhist for three years when he embarked on a 21-day fast and meditation on a sacred mountain, Mt. Kuriyama, 17 miles from Kyoto, Japan. On the last day, the healing symbols, their meaning and use, were shown to Dr. Usui.
 
So began the healing art of Reiki which has endured, evolved, and is practiced all over the world. I recommend the book Reiki: The Legacy of Dr. Usui by Frank Arjava Petter for an accurate history of Dr. Usui’s life and work.
 
 
ABOUT REIKI
 
The word Reiki is written in Japanese Kanji (a system of writing using Chinese characters) and is in two parts. The upper part stands for Rei, which means universal or spiritual, and the lower part stands for ki and means energy, life force, and breath.
 

 

Reiki is a Japanese healing art and hands-on intuitive practice of healing and probably had its origins in China and Tibet over 3000 years ago. Practitioners are open channels for this living universal energy.
