What is Reiki?
Reiki is an holistic technique that promotes the relief of stress, relaxation and the healing of our physical, emotional, mental and spiritual states, by using the universal life force energy. The Reiki practitioner becomes a channel for this healing energy that enters in the head and pass through the hands to heal the patient. The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words: Rei which means "God's Wisdom or the Higher Power" and Ki which is the "Life Force Energy".
It's scientifically proven that everything on earth is made by the same energy. Knowing that, using the life energy to heal and improve our body makes sense. Reiki can flows in absolutely everything, humans, animals, flowers, trees..

History of Reiki
Reiki was discovered by Dr. Mikaomi Usui, a Buddhist monk in Japan in the early 1900's. Dr. Usui taught Reiki to more than 2,000 people during his lifetime. One of them was Dr. Chujiro Hayashi who had the opportunity to become a student of Dr. Usui few months before Dr. Usui died.
Dr. Hayashi opened a reiki clinic in Japan that was very known and very popular in the whole country
Mrs Hayayo Takata was an Hawaiian woman with Japanese origin and when she got sick she decided to travel to Japan to find a surgeon. She was referred to Dr. Hayashi and she was amazed by the results on her health. She asked Dr. Hayashi to teach her reiki, what he accepted. She came back to Hawaii and opened her own clinic and spread the reiki techniques to the West and mainly in America.
Why Reiki The World?
When I began reiki and was attuned by Tracey Ostrand, 10th in the lineage of Dr. Usui, I wanted to reiki everybody and everything. My husband, my neighbors, my neighbors' dogs, my friends, my flowers, I practiced every day. When I give reiki, a warm sensation of clarity, love and well being embraces my body, my mind, my heart. Giving this love, this healing to the world is magnificent. An indescribable feeling of connection with an Higher Power, an Higher Force, with the entire world and Universe fills me and I would be too selfish to keep it for myself, I need to share it and to give this love, to Reiki The World!
