This is a gentle method of hands-on healing that taps into the energy referred to as ki (pronounced “chi”) in Japan, qi (pronounced “chi”) in China, and prana in India. The practice of Reiki is based on the teachings of Mikao Usui, who practiced and taught healing techniques in early twentieth century Japan. Reiki is not massage, hypnosis or a tool for diagnosing illness. It is a technique that addresses both chronic and acute conditions, gently and powerfully promoting balance among all the body’s systems and the regenerative processes of body and mind.
