What is Reiki


REIKI is a generic word in Japan, and is used to describe any type of healing work based on life force energy. It is got exclusive to the system of healing based on Dr. Usui’s method. The system of healing that evolved from Dr. Usui’s method is called the Usui System of Natural Healing or Usui Shiki Ryoho.

Since neither Dr. Usui nor Dr. Hayashi left written instructions about REIKI, the only source of information on the Usui system of REIKI comes from the verbal instructions Mrs. Takata passed on to her students.


 REIKI ( pronounced ‘ray- key’) is a laying on hands healing technique thousands of years old. It is thought to have originated as a Tibetan Buddhist practice that was rediscovered in the late 1800’s by Dr.  Mikao Usui, a Japanese Buddhist. It is a very simple yet powerful technique that can be easily learned by anyone.

The word REIKI comes from two Japanese words, Rei and Ki.

Rei  is Spiritual Wisdom.

Research into the hidden meaning of the Japanese kanji character for rei has given a much deeper understanding of the ideogram. The word rei as it is used in REIKI is more accurately interpreted to mean supernatural knowledge or spiritual consciousness. This is the wisdom that comes from God or the higher self. This is the God consciousness which is all knowing. It understands each person completely. It knows the cause of all problems and difficulties and knows what to do to heal them.

KI – The life force

Ki means the same as ‘Chi’ in Chinese, ‘Prana’ in Sanskrit and ‘Mana’ in Hawaiian. It has also been called as odicforce, orgone, and Bioplasma. It has been given many other names by the various cultures that have  been aware of it.

KI is the life force. It is also called as the vital life force or the universal life force. This is the non physical energy that animates all living things as long as something is alive. It has life force circulating through it and surrounding it. When it dies, the life force departs. If your life force is low or if there is a restriction in its flow you will be more vulnerable to illness. When it is high and flowing freely you are less likely to get sick. Life force plays an important role in everything we do. It animates the body and also is the primary energy of our emotions, thoughts and spiritual life.

  • REIKI can never cause harm.
  • Energy is never depleted.
  • Everybody can learn REIKI.
  • REIKI is not a religion.
