Reiki is a healing practice where the healer channels their energy into the patient through touch. It is said to activate the healing properties within the patient to help with their physical and emotional well-being. This alternative medicine was created in 1922 by the Japanese Buddist Mikao Usui. Since it's creation several other variations have been created some with names like "palm healing" or "hands-on healing".  A little over 100 years ago a Japanese man, Mikao Usui, began a personal search that ended with his having contact with the energy Reiki. His practice grew and eventually Reiki was introduced out of Japan via Hawaii in 1937 by Hawayo Takata Sensei. It is passed on from one person to another through a specific initiation, teachings and a defined form of practice. A little over 100 years ago a Japanese man, Mikao Usui, began a personal search that ended with his having contact with the energy Reiki.

The Japanese word ‘reiki’ can be translated as ‘universal life energy’ and the Usui System is a way of working with reiki for healing of self and others. The word healing is used in the sense of regaining harmony and wholeness.
