Reiki literally translates from Japanese as ‘universal life-force energy.’ As a practice, Reiki is a gentle, relaxing, non-invasive non-injurious, channeling of this energy from the Reiki Practitioner to a recipient, usually done by placing the hands over the body, sometimes lightly touching (i.e. head, hands, shoulders, feet). The channeled energy promotes peace of mind, emotions, and increases the ‘universal life-force energy’ within the body of the recipient. This increase in life-force energy stimulates the body’s own healing processes, and can help decrease pain, stress, and encourage faster recovery from illness and injury.
Dr. Mikao Usui, a Tendai Buddhist, rediscovered this healing practice in the late 19th century in Japan and felt it should be shared for the benefit of all. He studied Japanese, Chinese and Western healing arts in his lifetime.
