What is Reiki?

The Body Works! REIKI Training Program


The word REIKI comes from the Japanese andmeans “universal life energy.”  REI”describes the universal and limitless aspect of this energy, while “KI” represents the life force, which is in all living things.  This “KI” is the same energy that is known as “Chi” by the Chinese, “Prana” by the Hindus in India, and “Mana” by the Kahunas in Hawaii.  

The origin of REIKI dates back 10,000 years into the ancient history of Japan, Egypt, China and Tibet.  It has been used as a system of “hand-on healing” in India, China and Japan and came to us in the United States through Dr. Mikao Usui.  Dr. Mikao Usui rediscovered REIKI in the middle of the 19th century.usui

 REIKIenergy can be used anytime, anywhere, and by anyone, even the very young.  There is no special equipment required. 

REIKIenergy is constantly flowing and moving.  It will go where it is needed and in the quantity needed.  It works well with other types of healing modalities and will help them be more effective, enabling the healing process to succeed more rapidly.

How doesREIKIwork?

 REIKIis universal life force energy.  People of all faiths, religions, ideologies, and philosophies use this REIKIenergy.  It is a transcendental energy, which combines with and activates the innate energy that exists in everything.  The practice of REIKI promotes wellness and healing on all levels, of the body, mind and spirit.
