What is Reiki?

Dr Usui Reiki Founder

Reiki is a japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is practiced by the laying on of hands.

Human beings are energy systems. If we accept this premise, then life energy is the essential and most basic element of the human energy system. Reiki is the universal energy that’s all around us. We suffer when we don't have enough energy to carry out our life functions or when we, as energy systems, are out of balance. The effect of receiving a Reiki treatment is that our supply of life energy is increased and we return to balance. In this state of balance and renewed energy we can heal.

Above is Dr. Usui who discovered Reiki during a mystical experience on Mt. Kurama, a sacred mountain north of Kyoto, Japan in March, 1922. A few months later he started a Reiki organization called the Usui Reiki Ryoho Gakkai which means “Usui Reiki Healing Society.” He also opened a Reiki clinic in Harajuku, Aoyama, Tokyo. There he taught classes and gave Reiki treatments. After the Great Kanto earthquake in 1923 the demand for Reiki was great and it was at this time that Usui began training other teachers.

The system of healing that evolved from Dr. Usui's method is called the Usui System of Natural Healing or Usui Reiki Ryoho and this is what I practice.
Reiki is religiously neutral. While Dr. Usui ‘may’ have been a Buddhist, he had also studied Christianity and had lived with a Christian family for a time. He had a very broad background in many religious teachings and philosophies.
