* Mikao Usui is credited with developing Reiki, although there are resources that suggest others may have practiced Reiki prior to Usui. Reiki is a lineage-based practice, meaning the teaching is passed down from teacher to student (rather than, say, via a book, video, or website). Part of the reason that there is a wide variety of approaches to Reiki practice is that various approaches evolved through different teaching lines or lineages.

Experience Deep rest

There are many approaches to the Japanese meditative practice of Reiki. You can find Reiki practice in spas, massage therapy practices, yoga studios, medical practices, nursing homes, and hospitals. I learned and practice Usui Reiki Ryoho, a simple yet effective practice first developed in the 1920s by Mikao Usui.* At the heart of Reiki practice is the self-care practice, but Reiki sessions can also be offered to others. During a Reiki session, you remain fully clothed. You sit in a chair or lie on a treatment table while the Reiki practitioner uses a series of gentle hand placements on or above your head and torso. One of the key benefits of Reiki practice is what I call deep rest. While in a state of deep rest, we have the opportunity to recuperate, rebalance, and renew our body, mind, and spirit.
