What is Reiki

Reiki is a traditional Japanese alternative treatment based on the transferring of the universal spiritual energy Reiki which has beneficial effects on the body as for instance improvement of health and well-being, relaxation, mental tranquility, optimism, development of positive feelings and spiritual welfare.

The Reiki method is a natural energy-based technique that transfers the universal spiritual energy Reiki through touch and is very easy to use as well as effective.

The word Reiki is Japanese and literally means “spiritual energy”. The original name of this method is Usui Reiki Ryoho.

Usui was the name of the founder of the technique, Ryoho means healing method and thus the original method can be interpreted as “Usui Spiritual Energy Healing Method”.

Reiki does not substitute traditional medicine

Reiki is a mild energy-based method which does not substitute the wise and appropriate use of traditional medicine and psychological assistance. Reiki works harmoniously and alongside all types of medical treatments, pharmaceutical treatments, psychological treatments and any other type of alternative treatment and helps in the restoration and improvement of health. Reiki practitioners do not diagnose diseases nor do they recommend medicines or other substances. Reiki is a simple natural energy-based method that creates a positive basis for a healthy body and mind.

Reiki is not a religion

Reiki is not a dogma nor does it involve any type of religious processes. You do not have to believe in something in order to use Reiki. Reiki is effective regardless of one’s faith.

Around the world Reiki is practiced by people of any religion, race, level of education and social status. Reiki is a spiritual method that unites people from all over the world.
