Reiki is a form of alternative medicine which in recent past has gained a lot of popularity due to its immense benefits and results. A practice developed in Japan in the early 1920's. It was adopted by many scholars and preachers in order to heal people of ailments. Reiki, a Japanese term, is consisted of two words - Rei and Ki. These words have multiple meaning in Japanese. Hence considering ‘Rei' as ‘Universal', and Ki meaning ‘Life Energy', on a whole, it translates roughly to ‘Universal Life Energy'.
Reiki is a form of healing that is exercised with the technique of palm healing. It derives its reasoning from the fact that an unseen, supernatural ‘universal life energy' flows within the human body is the main factor in sustaining lives. Everything depends upon the levels of this ‘universal life energy'. A balanced level causes a person to be happy and live happy, thus offering them a healthy and long life span. Conversely, a low energy force may cause a person to become dull and uninterested in life.
Reiki does not only take into consideration the physical form of a person, but also involves emotional quotients like mental stability, feelings, emotions, and, very importantly, the spirit. A Reiki treatment promises innumerable benefits, right from relaxation, stress reduction, peace of mind, to a sense of complete wellbeing.
