What is Reiki? I am asked this alot, even though I presume everyone has heard of it. That is how commonplace it has become to me. Utilizing Reiki energy is a way of life for me. I Reiki myself every day. I send Reiki to family and friends, even those I do not know, for healing. The healing doesn't have to be physical. It can be on any level including psychological, emotional, situational.
It's traditional explanation has been: Reiki is an ancient Tibetan form of hands-on-healing that originated between 2,500-3,000 years ago. It was rediscovered by Dr. Mikao Usui, a monk from Kyoto, Japan. Dr. Usui developed the modern system and in the 1920s he passed this information on to Dr. Hayashi, who in turn trained a woman by the name of Hawayo Takata. It was Madam Takata who brought Reiki to the United States in the 1940s.
Reiki works on "ki" or "chi" energy that naturally flows through the body channels and Chakkra system. (Similar to acupuncture meridians.) It reinforces that flow in "blocked areas". It addresses the whole person and works with the bodies own abilitiy to heal.
I personally have witnessed Reiki's gentle and subtle power in myself , my students and clients. Over the past 10-15 years many a research study has been conducted on Reiki's effects. I was actually part of one myself. Reiki is available as an alternative healing option in many a hospital around the country.
