"Reiki is a spiritual practice developed in 1922 by Mikao Usui. After three weeks of fasting and meditating on Mount Kurama, in Japan, Usui claimed to receive the ability of "healing without energy depletion". A portion of the practice, tenohira or palm healing, is used as a form of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM). Tenohira is a technique whereby practitioners believe they are moving "healing energy" (a form of ki) through the palms." Ki is also known as chi.
In this healing modality, the client is fully clothed and either lies on a massage table or sits in a chair. The practitioner uses hand placements either on or above the body. 45-90 minutes, may also include counseling
