Reiki is a very specific form of energy healing, in which hands are placed just off the body or lightly touching the body, as in “laying on of hands.” Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one's "life force energy" is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.
The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words – “Rei” which means spirit, guided, conscious, universe, "God's Wisdom or the Higher Power", and “Ki” which is "life force energy". When you put them together you have a conscious energy that may be used to heal. So Reiki is actually "spiritually guided life force energy."
In a Reiki session, the practitioner is seeking to transmit Universal Life Energy to the client. The intention is to create deep relaxation, to help speed healing, reduce pain, and decrease other symptoms you may be experiencing. A Reiki session usually takes between one and two hours. It is not massage, nor is it based on belief or suggestion. Reiki can also be done “long-distance,” or “remotely” as a form of prayer.
According to many versions of its origin, Dr Mikao Usui, a Japanese seeker of spiritual truths, brought the Reiki method of healing into human awareness in 1922 after a deep spiritual experience. He is said to have begun teaching others after a serious earthquake hit Japan and he felt urged to spread his knowledge.
