The name Reiki consists of two Japanese words. “Rei” can mean universal, spirit, divine, or terminology of the same meaning. “Ki” refers to life force energy. Reiki can then be translated as universal life force energy. Reiki was discovered and developed in Japan in the late 1800’s by Mikao Usui.
Reiki is a gentle, non-invasive form of energy healing where practitioners place their hands directly above the body or may also use a light touch.

James L. Oschman, Ph.D., one of the leading authorities on the science of energy medicine, provides a simple science-based definition:
“Healing energy, whether produced by a medical device or projected from the human body, is energy of a particular frequency or set of frequencies that stimulates the repair of one or more tissues.”
Reiki practitioners do not diagnose and Reiki should never be used instead of medical treatment. Reiki should be used as a compliment therapy to medical treatment.
