Reiki is not a religion.
Although Reiki is not a substitute for conventional medicine, it never does harm and is used in conjunction with many medical modalities. Reiki practitioners are found in hospitals, cancer clinics, wellness centers, hospice agencies, nursing homes, pain clinics and in private practice.
The practice of Usui Reiki has its origins in Japan. Reiki energy is very powerful, very nurturing, and brings a sense of peace to the stressful issues we all are confronted with in our daily lives.
Becoming a Reiki Master is not simply acquiring a certificate but a way of life.
Reiki energy resides in every one of us. Each of us can learn to use this abundant life force as a relaxation technique, to reduce stress and as an aid in healing. Not only can the Reiki practitioner use this loving energy for his or her own self-improvement but also in helping others while never depleting his or her own energy.
