Dr. Mikao UsuiReiki (Ray-Key) is a Japanese word which essentially means "spiritually guided life force energy." Reiki is a particular frequency of Ki energy with healing properties. Reiki treatments utilize this energy to promote deep relaxation, stress reduction, and holistic healing by vitalizing the body and bringing the human energy field into balance.

Reiki was discovered by a Japanese Buddhist monk, Dr. Mikao Usui, in the early years of the twentieth century. Dr. Usui started a healing clinic and developed a system for treating, initiating, and training people, called the Usui System of Natural Healing.

Reiki has become well-known in the West and is now being used in a variety of mind/ body treatment settings, including hospitals, hospice care, massage therapy, physical therapy, and mental health.
