History of Reiki
This spiritual healing therapy was developed in 1922 by Japanese Buddhist named Mikao Usui. The word Reiki is made up of two Japanese Words. One word is “Rei” and the other is “ki“. “Rei” means “The higher power or God’s wisdom“. “ki” means “life force energy“. Reiki healing is a natural therapy that gently balances life energies and brings health and well being to the recipient.
