To Reiki Is To Chi – A Universal Life Force!
Reiki is a form of alternative medicine called energy healing. Reiki practitioners use a technique called palm healing or hands-on healing through which a “universal energy” is said to be transferred through the palms of the practitioner to the patient in order to encourage emotional or physical healing.
Based on qi (“chi”), which practitioners say is a universal life force. Developed in Japan in 1922 by Mikao Usui, it has been adapted into varying cultural traditions across the world. Reiki’s teachings and adherents claim that qi is physiological and can be manipulated to treat a disease or condition.
