Reiki is a method of care of Japanese origin based on energetic care by putting hands. This more than thousand-year-old method was revisited by Mikao Usui (1865-1926). Reiki, like magnetism, is based on the concept of the universal energy of life. Reiki differs from magnetism only in that symbols are visualized or traced during the reiki session. The method was already used 2 to 3 thousand years ago and was brought up to date a hundred years ago (early 1900).
