Reiki is a Japanese spiritual method which is popularly used as a healing methodology for stress relief and relaxation. A spiritual practice developed in the year 1922 by Japanese Buddhist Mikao Usui, the method has been adopted by many spiritual practitioners of various religions. The term “Reiki” originates from the Japanese words ‘Rei’ and ‘Ki’. While ‘Rei’ means ‘God’s Wisdom’ or ‘the Highest Power’, ‘Ki’ means ‘Life Force Energy’. Today, Reiki is acknowledged across the globe as a healing power for stress. Reiki method is also referred as “Palm healing” or “hands-on healing” as it is a method administered by lying on hands.  It is believed that through hands or palms, one can transfer universal energy which is again used for self-healing or stress reduction. The method believes in the fact that if the life force energy is low in a person, that person seems to feel low and depressed. This causes stress and unwanted tension. To resolve this problem, palm healing is used to transfer unseen life force energy to a person and thus reduce stress. Reiki is either instructed by a spiritual teacher for self-healing or is administered by an experienced spiritual Reiki practitioner. Reiki is considered as a healthy way of self-healing to lead a peaceful and happy life in today’s hectic world.

Two Branches of Reiki – Traditional Japanese Reiki and Western Reiki

Traditional Japanese Reiki was discovered and followed by Mikao Usui. After a life of martial arts and meditation, he used Reiki as a practice towards attaining enlightenment. He followed the practice to attain a balanced life. His mantra was “if you cannot heal yourself, how can you heal others”. The traditional Reiki follows traditional methods of meditations and breathing techniques. The mantras are practiced as chanting through Buddhist style.

Western Reiki is the most common Reiki practice, extensively followed around the globe. This branch was passed by Hawayo Takata who was a student of Chujiro Hayashi, a student of Mikao Usui. This branch focuses mainly on the healing component. After emerging with self-healing from health problems, Tayata began the art of hands-on healing technique. Today, Reiki is followed as a healing practice with hand positions along with the inclusion of Chakras, the energetic system.
