What is Reiki?
Reiki is a holistic energy healing modality that was founded in 1920 by Mikao Usui after he saw the Reiki symbols on Mount Kurama and was able to heal his injured toe using them. Reiki is derived from two Japanese words: "Rei" meaning wisdom, and "ki" meaning universal energy. Together, they mean guided universal life. Reiki involves channeling the universal energy through the practitioner's hands and into the client's energy field to remove energy blockages that are causing them pain and discomfort.
