Reiki is said to have come from Tibet several thousands of years ago, according to holistic online.com. Mikao Usui rediscovered the system in the mid-1800s and studied it for 21 years. It was introduced to the west in the mid-70s. Proponents say it's useful for treating sports injuries, cuts, emotional disorders and stress-related ills.
