Reiki is a very ancient healing and spiritual development system rediscovered in the 1800s by Dr. Usui. It originated in Tibetan Buddhism and was developed in Japan. The system was brought to the West through Hawaii and the US and then to Europe in the 1930s.
The word Reiki translates from Japanese into Universal Life Force or Energy. The system utilises this life force which is the living essence in all things.
