There is something beautiful about all scars of whatever nature. A scar means the hurt is over, the wound is closed and healed, done with. - Harry Crews
Reiki with its infinite wisdom goes to the place in the body that requires healing. That is why Reiki is so easy to learn and apply. There is no need to study the anatomy of the human body or animals to treat a person or animal successfully. You simply place your hands on the body and channel the energy. Reiki will do the rest.
However, it can be helpful to know where the major organs, lymphatic and endocrine systems are in the body. This knowledge will allow you to treat specific problems or organs quickly and easily.
The following illustrations are simple diagrams of the human anatomy. If you decide to further your studies we recommend that you make full use of your publi…
The art of healing comes from nature, not from the physician. Therefore the physician must start from nature, with an open mind. - Philipus Aureolus ParacelsusPreparing for Reiki 1 - The Path to Reiki

The best and most efficient pharmacy is within your own system - Robert C. Peale
The Japanese like many ancient cultures used word of mouth to pass their history and practices down from generation to generation. Unfortunately this led to a great deal of knowledge and wisdom being watered down and lost. Many people involved with Reiki believe that the techniques we use today for healing were first used in India by Buddha and later by Jesus.
