The Reiki or healing is an ancient treatment by energy, re-discovered and re-developed in the late 19th century by a Japanese Buddhist doctor called Mikao Usui (1864-1926). In some Arabic countries it is called "the way of touching."
A Japanese word made of 2 parts:
Rei = universal and cosmic. Not limited, the divine soul and wisdom, the hidden force, and everything that has to do with mystics. It is the higher force that guides the universe and the wisdom given from God that knows every health problems (among others), what are the causes and how to treat it.
Ki = energy. It is the energy and pulse of life, light and the spirit of the maker. This energy is everywhere, in human beings, animals, plants, etc.
Reiki could originate from the Arabic word "Rakwa;" Which means to pray on someone without touching him/her. This shows how international and universal Reiki is.
Reiki is a method of alternative treatment, it depends on energy and it is simple but with great abilities to communicate with a sick body in order to correct what is wrong. Positive energies are sent from the person who treats to the treated, and the former receives the negative energy from the latter. This creates an energy cycle which leads to inner energy equilibrium through chakras. Also, the personal halo balances back to its natural colors, so the body and soul achieve balance as well. The person who treats, having received a large amount of negative energy, uses a special technique to empty it and replace it with positive energy.
