Reiki is a Japanese healing technique that was discovered by Dr. Mikao Usui at the turn of the 20th century and brought to the United States by Mrs. Hawayo Takata in 1938. Reiki is a safe natural method of spiritual healing that uses universal life energy transmitted through the practitioner to the receiver.
Reiki is not a replacement for medical or mental health care.
While Reiki is spiritual in nature, it is not a religion. It has no dogma, and there is nothing you must believe in order to learn and use Reiki. In fact, Reiki is not dependent on belief at all and will work whether you believe in it or not.
While Reiki is not a religion, it is still important to live and act in a way that promotes harmony with others. Mikao Usui, the founder of the Reiki system of natural healing, recommended that one practice certain simple ethical ideals to promote peace and harmony, which are nearly universal across all cultures.

During the session the client is fully clothed lying on the massage table or if preferred, sitting in a chair.
