Reiki is a natural healing method that was developed in the early 20th century in Japan. The word Reiki is a combination of two Japanese words: Rei and Ki. Rei means spiritual intelligence or supernatural force; Ki means life energy.
In the Western world Reiki is mostly described as Universal life force energy. This energy is channelled by a Reiki practitioner and goes to the places in the body where healing is most needed.
Tera MaiTM Reiki was developed by Kathleen Milner and is based on the Usui System of Natural Healing, which is the original Reiki system founded by Mikao Usui. Tera MaiTM is a registered trademark; this ensures that the Masters always teach Tera MaiTM Reiki following the same initiations.
