Answer

Muhtaram / Muhtaramah

In the Name of Allāh, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāh wa-barakātuh.

According to our elementary research, there are many different forms of Reiki, ranging from basic physical exercises to deep spiritual meditation involving the Budha. Consequently, there is no blanket ruling on the permissibility of Reiki. Any form of physical exercise that enhances the wellbeing of body without compromising any of the tenets of faith will be permissible.

And Allah knows best
