Reiki is the art of hand healing originated in Japan by Mikao Usui in 1922. The original term for this is Shin Shin Usui Reiki Ryoho or “using Reiki therapy for improving body and mind”. Reiki is an energy healing or natural process carried out by placing hands on the body. By doing so a Reiki practitioner receives Reiki energy from the universe and transmits the energy onto the receiver. This awakens the natural healing abilities of the recipient. Reiki can be used for both physical and psychological health.
