Reiki was developed in 1922 by Japanese Buddhist Mikao Usui. Reiki is a gentle, non-intrusive hands-on process involving the transfer of universal energy to the recipient.
During a Reiki treatment, the practitioner directs healing universal energy called Qi, to several areas of the body. This helps to activate the natural healing processes of the body and restore physical and emotional well-being.
Reiki can relieve pain and acute symptoms quite rapidly while more chronic problems may require more extensive treatment.
The recipient remains fully clothed throughout the treatment.
