Reiki (pronounced Ray-key) is a Japanese word meaning Universal Life Energy, an energy which is all around us.
Reiki is the name given to a system of natural healing which evolved in Japan from the experience and dedication of Dr Mikao Usui (d. 1926). Fired by a burning question, Dr Usui was inspired to develop this healing system from ancient teachings after many years of study, research and meditation. He spent the rest of his life practising and teaching Reiki. Today Reiki continues to be taught by Reiki Masters who have trained in the tradition passed down from Master to student.
There is no belief system attached to Reiki so anyone can receive or learn to give a Reiki treatment, the only prerequisite is the desire to be healed.
A Reiki Treatment
The method of receiving a Reiki treatment from a practitioner is a very simple process. The recipient simply lies on a couch and relaxes. If they are unable to lie down the treatment can be given in a sitting position, the main thing is for the recipient to be as comfortable as possible. There is no need to remove any clothing as Reiki will pass through anything, even plaster casts. The practitioner gently places their hands non-intrusively in a sequence of positions which cover the whole body. The whole person is treated rather than specific symptoms. A full treatment usually takes 1 to 1½ hours with each position held for several minutes.
Which conditions can Reiki help?
It is possible to heal at any level of being: physical, mental, emotional or spiritual. Acute injuries can be helped to heal very quickly but more chronic illness takes longer. In some cases such as terminal illness, there is not enough time for the progress of the disease to be reversed. However, in such cases there is usually great benefit and enhancement of the quality of life giving a sense of peace and acceptance during the time remaining.
Reiki healing can be given anywhere at any time as no special equipment is needed. The practitioner is a channel which the energy is drawn through by the need or imbalance in the recipient. Neither person has to use any effort of will or concentration during this process.
As running water smoothes the jagged edges of a rock until it is small enough to roll away, Reiki flows to the areas of need, soothing pain and supporting the body’s natural ability to heal itself. Reiki restores balance in one’s life.
Reiki supports all forms of treatment both orthodox and complementary.

Dont really know any thechnical info on it, but have received it once & was great!
My friend Holly does it. It’s mostly psycological but it’s to do with channeling energy from a healthy person into the parts of other people that aren’t so healthy.
She used to do it to our friend Max who had a kidney problem, I think it helps with the positive thoughts which help heal.
Below are the source that might help with you finding. Hope it might help you.
Yup – what would you like to know?
It’s actually a combination touch healing and breathing technique that helps to clear your aura or energy field and can help to heal ailments both mentally and physically.
Since there is a LOT to cover, you can email or IM me if you have more questions..
It’s not really a mind calming treatment as it is more of a healing treatment. As the previous person said, Reiki is more like where someone puts their hands just above your head/area that needs treatment as well as another chakra area.
just a bit. it has to do with channelling energy for healing. the person doesn’t actually touch you, just holds his/her hands over you.
Yes, Ive had it done. The therapist moves their hands above your body and can detect any problems. Its really relaxing and you can feel the heat of the hands although they dont actually touch.
