reiki therapy

Also found in: Dictionary, Encyclopedia.


An energy healing system based on ancient Tibetan scriptures, which were rediscovered by Professor M Usui in the mid-1800s.  Reiki (which translates from Japanese as “universal energy of life”) sessions are performed by practitioners who have been initiated through “energy attunement” by a Reiki Master, channelling Universal Life Energy to family, friends and clients. The Reiki practitioner is believed to act as a conduit for cosmic energy, which enters the top of his or her head and leaves through the hands.
