The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words Rei which means God’s Wisdom or Higher Power and can help us in times of need and to act as a source of guidance in our lives and Ki which means “life force energy” which is non-physical energy that animation in all living things.

The founder of Reiki is Dr. Mikao Usui, who was principal of the Doshisha University in Kyoto, Japan, and also a Christian minister.

The great value of Reiki is that because it is guided by the Higher Intelligence, it knows exactly where to go and how to respond to restrictions in the flow of Ki.

As a Reiki flows through a sick or unhealthy area, it breaks up and washes away any negative thoughts or feelings lodged in the unconscious mind/body thus allowing a normal healthy flow of Ki to resume.

Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind, and spirit, creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feeling of peace and wellbeing.

The Reiki Principles:

  • Just for today I will give thanks for my many blessings.
  • Just for today I will not worry.
  • Just for today I will not be angry.
  • Just for today I will do my work honestly.
  • Just for today I will be kind to every living thing.

Reiki (霊気?, /ˈreɪkiː/) is a spiritual practice, now considered to be a form of pseudoscience, developed in 1922 by Japanese Buddhist Mikao Usui, has since been adapted by various teachers of varying traditions. It uses a technique commonly called palm healing or hands-on-healing as a form of alternative medicine and is sometimes classified as oriental medicine by some professional medical bodies. Through the use of this technique, practitioners believe that they are transferring universal energy (i.e., reiki) in the form of qi (Japanese: ki) through the palms, which they believe allows for self-healing and a state of equilibrium. These beliefs have not been verified by modern medical science.


There are two main branches of Reiki, commonly referred to as Traditional Japanese Reiki and Western Reiki. Though differences can be wide and varied between both branches and traditions, the primary difference is that the Westernised forms use systematised hand-placements rather than relying on an intuitive sense of hand-positions (see below), which is commonly used by Japanese Reiki branches. Both branches commonly have a three-tiered hierarchy of degrees, usually referred to as the First, Second, and Master/Teacher level, all of which are associated with different skills and techniques.
