Integrative Health and Human Subtle Energy



“Qi” is a fundamental concept in Chinese medicine. “Reiki” is a Japanese concept of Qi energy. Reiki is well known in Europe and America. For example, Brigham and Women’s Hospital (Harvard Medical School) has a certification system of Hospital Reiki Practitioner. We are thinking to use these subtle energies in the field of Integrative Health.

Targeted Application(s)/Industry

At first, technique to detect subtle energy through skin sensor can be offered. Then, cooperative work will start to develop detector of subtle energy. Our final purpose is to use subtle energy in daily life.
