Reiki is a healing hand art and enlightenment system developed in the early 1900’s by Mikao Usui in Japan. It is an art that is transmitted from teacher to student. The word Reiki comes from two Japanese words: Rei and Ki, which means Universal Life Force Energy. The term “Reiki” is used to describe both energy and the Usui system of using it. This therapy is excellent for those who have trouble meeting their own needs.
