Reiki, pronounced “ray-key” is an energy healing technique that originated in Japan. The word reiki means white light. This white light is universal energy. During reiki the practitioner uses her hands to transmit reiki, or universal energy, thereby facilitating healing for the patient. The Japanese word for healing is te-ate which literally means “to apply hands.” The term originated prior to the development of modern medicine when people understood that placing one’s hands on an injury promoted healing.
Reiki can be used for any condition or complaint, physical or emotional.
Energy healing is found in all cultures worldwide. There are many different energy healing techniques including reiki, therapeutic touch, qi gong, polarity therapy, toning, acupressure, acupuncture and many others.
