Reiki was discovered by Dr. Mikao Usui 1865–1926 after a 21-day meditation on Mt. Kurama in Japan in the late 1800s. One student of Usui's trained 22 other Reiki masters, including Phyllis Furomoto in the United States, to use and teach this healing system. From those original 22, Reiki has spread around the world and is now used by thousands of people today.

Reiki is like acupuncture without needles; it brings the body/mind into balance. It reduces stress and anxiety, relieves tension in tight muscles, and reduces anxiety. It returns an organism (human or animal) to a state of balance, through relaxation, allowing healing to commence.
