The word Reiki (pronounced Ray Key) means “Universal Life Energy”.  It is defined as being that power which acts and lives in all created matter.  The Usui system of Reiki is not only the most simple and natural healing method we know of, but it is also the most effective way of transferring this universal life energy.  In Reiki treatment, use is made solely of a neutral but concentrated form of cosmic energy.   Reiki is, above all, holistic in effect.  It reaches all levels of existence and strives to bring Mind, Body and Spirit into a state of balance.

Reiki is used in much the same way to achieve similar effects that traditional massage therapy is used—to relieve stress and pain, and to improve the symptoms of various health conditions.  Reiki has been used in major clinics and hospitals as part of alternative healing practice, and doctors, dentists, nurses and other health professionals have been trained to use its gentle touch techniques as part of their practice.  To date, scientific research that has been conducted with Reiki implies that its techniques bring about the relaxation response, in which stress levels decrease, and immune response increases.

The Reiki Therapist is only a channel for this energy, for it is not her own, limited energy which passes through her when she lays hands on a person, but rather a universal one, which leaves her strengthened and harmonized after.  Thus the healer receives the healing, as well. 

To receive or practice Reiki, no special kind of faith or belief is required.  It is used with the same success by people of many faiths and religions, by free thinkers as well as by the followers of widely differing philosophies and ideologies.  The fact that Reiki has enabled many people to arrive at a more comprehensive understanding of religious matters while enabling them to experience spirituality in a more profound manner speaks for its universality.
