Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. There is historical evidence available that In March 1922, Usai Sensui, the first Reiki master went to meditate, at the top Kurama Yama, a sacred mountain, north of Kyoto in Japan. His objective was not to discover a healing technique, but rather to experience An-shin-Ritsu-Mei, which in the Japanese language means enlightenment. In this peaceful state, the man was guided to fulfill his/her life’s supreme purpose. He saw three powerful symbols from the universe during his meditative state. Ecstatic at discovering his purpose in life, Usai Sensui excitedly ran down the mountain top to share his news with others, when he accidentally tripped and injured.
