What is Reiki?
Reiki (pronounced ray-key) is a Japanese for Universal Life Energy. It is made out of two Japanese works – Rei – which means “God’s Wisdom or the Higher Power” and Ki which is “life force energy”. So Reiki is actually “spiritually guided life force energy.
Reiki is a technique for whole body/mind/spirit healing formulated by Mikao Usui Sensei in 1922 in Japan. It is performed by a highly trained practitioner, in a non-invasive method of "laying on of hands." The practitioner becomes a passageway through which the healing energy, existing naturally in the universe, seeks the source of illness or discomfort and applie itself to where it is most needed. It brings the client to place of balance and harmony for self-healing. The client remains fully clothed.
