Reiki is an energy healing system that has been widely accepted as an alternative healing practice. Energy work is intuitive and spiritual and Reiki addresses issues on all levels including the physical, mental and emotional. Reiki is intuitive energy and only goes where it is needed to break up energy block that cause dis-ease. Practitioners have a certificate from a Reiki Master Teacher and Reiki can only be passed on from a Master Teacher to a student. There are 4 levels of the Usui Western system that allow the practitioner to access higher levels of consciousness, and to become stronger channels of Reiki energy. Reiki energy comes from a universal source through a practitioner into another person, place or thing, and can also be sent remotely.

There are many modalities of Reiki and the most  common is Usui Western Reiki that was brought to the US by Mrs. Kawao Takata in the 1930's. Reiki is being practiced in many urban hospitals all over the world and studies, though small in number in the US, have helped to confirm Reiki's efficacy in AIDS and cancer remission and stress reduction. Anyone can be taught Reiki, and finding a proper teacher is important to keep the practice of Reiki ethical and credible.
