Reiki – Is a gentle and powerful hands on healing art. It is classified as a complementary medicine.
It is in fact made up of two words – Rei and Ki which means universal life force. During a treatment the Reiki Practitioner will transfer this energy to the client and enhances the body’s ability to heal itself. It helps to restore balance to the mind, body and spirit.
Reiki has its origins in Tibet and India and is at least 2,500 years old. From here, Reiki migrated with the Buddhist sages to southeast Asia and China, then to Japan where the known history of Reiki begins. This begins with Dr. Mikao Usui who discovered Reiki as we know it today in 1922 and is often referred to the Usui Shiko Ryoho method. From Japan, it moved to Hawaii with Hawayo Takata and then to the West. For a complete history of Reiki please click here.
