The organization’s primary goal is to encourage greater awareness of Reiki energy work throughout the local and surrounding areas. Membership is open to documented Reiki providers throughout the world. REI promotes the education and awareness of Reiki through a not-for-profit structure.

Reiki is the Tibetan form of hands-on energy healing that is used clinically around the world to accelerate the body’s healing process. This use of energy healing is gaining acceptance in the CAM (Complementary and Alternative Medicine) field and is now considered part of the standard of care in many health institutions.
