The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words – Rei which means “God’s Wisdom or the Higher Power”
and Ki which is “life force energy”. So Reiki is actually “spiritually guided life force energy.”
A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the
whole person including body, emotions, mind, and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include
relaxation and feelings of peace, security, and well-being. Many have reported miraculous results.
Reiki is a simple, natural, and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can
use. It has been effective in helping virtually every known illness and malady and always creates a
beneficial effect. It also works with other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and
promote recovery.

An amazingly simple technique to learn, the ability to use Reiki is not taught in the usual sense but is
transferred to the student during a Reiki class. This ability is passed on during an “attunement” given by
a Reiki master. It allows the student to tap into an unlimited supply of “life force energy” to improve
one’s health and enhance the quality of life.
Its use is not dependent on one’s intellectual capacity or spiritual development and therefore is
available to everyone. It has been successfully taught to thousands of people of all ages and

While Reiki is not a religion, it is still important to live and act in a way that promotes harmony with
others. Mikao Usui, the founder of the Reiki system of natural healing, recommended that one practice
certain simple ethical ideals to promote peace and harmony, which are nearly universal across all

During a meditation several years after developing Reiki, Mikao Usui decided to add the Reiki Ideals to
the practice of Reiki. The Ideals came in part from the five principles of the Meiji emperor of Japan
whom Mikao Usui admired. The Ideals were developed to add spiritual balance to Usui Reiki. Their
purpose is to help people realize that healing the spirit by consciously deciding to improve oneself is a
necessary part of the Reiki healing experience. For the Reiki healing energies to have lasting results, the
client must accept responsibility for her or his healing and take an active part in it. Therefore, the Usui
system of Reiki is more than the use of Reiki energy. It must also include an active commitment to
improve oneself for it to be a complete system. The ideals are both guidelines for living a gracious life
and virtues worthy of practice for their inherent value.

Reiki classes are taught nationwide and in many parts of the world
