What is Reiki?

The practice of Reiki originated in Japan with a man named Mikao Usui. Usui tapped into this energy during an intense period of fasting and meditation at Mt. Kurama in 1922. He discovered that the energy could flow through his hands and heal pain and injury. “Reiki” itself is a Japanese word: “rei” means higher power and “ki” means life force energy.
