What is Reiki Therapy?

March 26, 2011

Reiki, pronounced ‘ray-key’, is a spiritual healing practice which was originated in Japan by a man named Mikao Usui. It’s a lying on of hands healing technique. Reiki practitioners place their hands lightly on the client receiving treatment. The goal of Reiki is to facilitate the body’s own healing response. In the U.S., Reiki is considered a part of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM).  

Reiki teachings advocate the idea that there is a never ending universal life force or spiritual energy. This spiritual energy has a healing effect on the body. Anyone can gain access to this energy and access is gained by receiving an attunement from a Reiki Master. There are three levels of Reiki attunements. Reiki has healing effects on the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual levels. The healing energy flows through the Reiki practitioner’s hands into the body part.
