What is Reiki Treatment?
Developed in the early 20th century by Mikao Usui, Reiki is the Japanese word for universal life energy. Reiki is a method of energy healing based on the use of therapeutic touch (or without touch, depending on the Reiki practitioner). Though it has been dismissed by many professionals for decades, as the notion of life force energy (the healing force behind the Reiki practice) is generally considered immeasurable and therefore medically irrelevant, research is now revealing something different.
Mikao Usui developed reiki in the early 1900s, deriving the term from the Japanese words rei, meaning “universal,” and ki, which refers to the vital life force energy that flows through all living things. Now, reiki is used all over the world, including in hospitals and hospices, to complement other forms of health treatments.

Can reiki replace traditional treatments?
No. Reiki treatment should not be used as a substitute for the consultation of a physician or a psychotherapist.
“Reiki complements other types of medical and therapeutic treatments, and it can increase the efficacy of other types of healing,” Bodner says.
If you’re already in good health, though, regular reiki treatments can enhance your ability to respond to stress and serve as a form of preventive medicine.
