Reiki is a popular form of alternative medicine developed in Japan around 1922. Reiki practitioners usually apply palm-healing or hands-on healing, through which “Universal Energy” is said to be channeled to the receiver with the aim to support spiritual, emotional and physical healing. Some Reiki practitioners also heal-on-distance.
