History of Reiki
In ancient India and afterward in Tibet, spiritual mystics used Reiki energy secretly for purification, healing and enlightenment. Reiki became a lost art right until a Japanese monk and spiritual seeker, Dr. Mikao Usuisan, rediscovered the techniques in the 1800s while in a quest to discover how Christ and Buddha had healed through touch. In the 1930s Mrs. Hawayo Takata introduced Reiki to the United States from Japan after she had been healed of illness through a series of Reiki treatments.
Today Reiki healing is taught and practiced throughout the world as a gentle, effective technique for self-healing and healing others, offering to rebalance and contributing to overall wellbeing. Reiki is now being offered in hospitals, clinics, private practices, and in homes. Reiki may be used effectively on people, animals, plants, and even on projects.
