    WhatisReiki?

    Essentially,"Reiki"(theproperJapanesepronunciationissomewherebetween"RayKey"and"LayKey")isatermusedtorefertoasystemofhealingandselfdevelopmentcreatedbyMikaoUsui(respectfullyreferredtoas:UsuiSensei)inJapanintheearlypartofthe20thCentury.

    Whilecommonlyreferredtosimplyas"Reiki"or"ReikiTherapy",thesystemofhealingandselfdevelopmentismoreformallycalled"UsuiReikiRyoho"thatis:"UsuiReikiHealingMethod"or"UsuiReikiTreatment"

    ReikiTherapywasintroducedtotheWestunderthetitle:UsuiShikiRyoho(UsuistyleHealingMethod[/Treatment])

    Atdifferenttimes,variousexpressionsofthesystemhavebeenknownas:

    UsuiDo(the'Do'referstoaspiritualorphilosophical'path',or'way')UsuiTeate('Teate'means'treatment','therapy'or'handhealing')andUsuiReiho(SpiritualMethod)[somepeopleseemtothinkReihoisacontractionof'ReikiRyoho']

    Simplystated,ReikiTherapycanbesaidtobeasynergisticcombinationof'spiritualhealing'and'energyhealing'techniques,andselfdevelopmentalpractices.

    Whilethesystemhasbeeninfluencedbyspiritualandtherapeuticdiscipline,practiceandidealsfoundwithinShinto,Buddhism(andpossiblyTaoism),Reikiitselfhasnospecificreligiousaffiliation.
