Reiki is a Japanese word which means universal energy. In Japanese “Rei” means universal and “Ki” means life energy. We all are born with this energy already innate within us and through this energy we regulate our lives. This is the only ultimate energy that exists.
Reiki is a healing method done through the touch of the hand. In every religious scripture we have always heard saints healing people or giving new life with their touch of their hand. You can read most of these events on the lifetime of Buddha and Christ, Guru Nanak, etc.
This reiki energy is never harmful nor it has any negative reaction. In Reiki there is no need of any other objects other than your palms. This is a very simple healing method. Reiki helps accelerate the building process of hormonal glands, new cells and rejuvenate the body.
