Reiki is a world-wide hands on healing method born in Japan. Originally it was developed as a secret method in ancient times and used for healing and guidance for people, teaching them to create a balance with nature. About a hundred years ago, it was re-discovered by Mikao Usui after fasting for three weeks on Mt Kurama.
The ability to receive energy is given to each person, called attunement, following a standardized method which is to make you a pathway for the Universal energy and to resonate you as a little universe withing the great universe. You become able to contact with Universal energy anytime to make use of it.
