The practice of Reiki is an original method of healing, developed by Mikao Usui in Japan early in the 20th century.
Treatment is by means of hand positions which correspond to each of the seven chakras. The idea is to balance each chakra, which can be likened to a spinning vortex of life energy. If disease is present, it is likely that the chakra relating to the organ which is the seat of the illness will be off balance. This in turn may be due to an emotional issue. Reiki attempts to resolve the causes of the illness by rebalancing the chakra, which in turn will cause the physical symptoms to subside.
Reiki practitioners are attuned to this energy by Reiki masters, and use symbols during treatments.
