Dr. Makao Usui
The word "Reiki" means "Universal Life Force Energy".  The Reiki method  directs the greater intelligence of that Life Force for acheiving "wholeness" or "at-one-ment" for ourselves and others.   To be "whole" is to be "healed".

This energy from which we and the entire universe was first formed, in the "Beginning", is available to us all.  What we are talking about here is the
Reiki method of focusing that "Universal (GOD) Energy" for healing.  This is a "technique", not a
religion or belief. Just as with the power of Prayer, which is a loving thought sent out into the ethers for the purpose of Good, Reiki is a powerful tool to enhance healing and allow us to experience and share the miracle of "wholeness".  There is a beautiful ceremony involved in being "attuned" for the purpose of harnessing and transmitting energy for healing.  Anyone can become a practicioner of Reiki, regardless of age or disabilities, all it requires is to be attuned by a Reiki teacher.  Or not!  Some believe that they have the power of Reiki without ever having been "Attuned".  Regardless, an understanding of the "way and feel" of the energy, and a knowledgeable Reiki Master to study and practice with and to exchange energy with is recommended.
Mikao Usui, principal of the Doshisha University in Kyoto, Japan and a Christian minister, is considered the Father of modern Reiki, and it was he, in the 1800's,  who presented  the basic method which we use today.   I am satisfied that "original" Reiki is a much older, ancient "lost" art, and many sources compare it to the method of "laying on of hands" that was used by Jesus and his disciples.  Some historians have tried to trace Reiki methods back to Tibet, and while there are gaps in the historical record, it probably did originate there thousands of years before Dr. Usui re-discovered it.
