The word "Reiki" means "mysterious atmosphere, miraculous sign". It is composed of the Japanese words "rei" (universal) and "ki" (life energy). Reiki is a kind of energy healing.
Energy healing targets the energy fields around the body.
According to the patients, the energy in their bodies can stagnate when physical injuries or possibly emotional pain have occurred. Over time, such energy blocks can cause illness.
Energy medicine aims to support the flow of energy and remove blockages similar to acupuncture or acupressure.
Improving the flow of energy inside and outside the body can enable relaxation, relieve pain, accelerate healing and reduce other symptoms of illness.
Reiki has been around for thousands of years. The current form was first developed in 1922 by a Japanese Buddhist named Mikao Usui. Who, according to reports, taught 2,000 people the Reiki method during his lifetime.
This practice spread through Hawaii to the United States in the 1940s and to Europe in the 1980s. It is commonly referred to as palm healing or practical healing.
