Reiki is a technique of manifestation of energy for spiritual enlightenment and healing, proponed by Mikao Usui, a Japanese Buddhist monk. Reiki is a combination of two Japanese words and means Universal Life Energy. Physical proximity is not a necessity in transforming the life energy from a Reiki master to a patient suffering from serious illnesses.
The healing power of Reiki is passed from a master to student. Self teaching is absent in case of Reiki.
There are wonderful healing experiences from around the world. Many of such experiences are nothing short of a miracle.
