He also reportedly taught 2,000 people the Reiki method during his lifetime. The practice spread to the U.S. through Hawaii in the 1940s, and then to Europe in the 1980s.
Evidence of healing with energy, which flows through the hand is found in the Egyptian Pyramids. As part of his search for a method of healing the sick. Dr. Mikao Usui read about the keys to healing in Sanskrit sutras that were 2,500 year old. The Usui system of healing is the system to which we generally refer when we say Reiki.
