The history of Reiki.

The practice of Reiki is an original method of healing, developed by Mikao Usui in Japan early in the 20th centry. Reiki's natural healing energy works on every level, not just on physical, and promotes the body's regenerative self healing ability.
The Japanese word Reiki means 'Universal Energy'. Eastern medicine has always recognised and worked with this energy, which flows through all living things and is vital to well-being. Known as 'ki' in Japan, 'chi' in china and 'prana' in India. Acupuncture, T'ai chi and Yoga are also based on the free-flow of this energy in a person.
Reiki is a non-invasive therapy whose purpose is to treat holistically and to restore homeostasis.
