Reiki is an Ancient Art of Natural Healing discovered by a man named Mikao Usui in the early 1900s. A non-invasive healing technique of channelling Universal energy to maintain and restore Physical, Emotional, Mental and Spiritual health in the body.
Reiki works by simple laying of hands and with pure intent on a person, plant or animal. This form of natural healing does not require the practitioner’s own energy but that of the Universe.
To become a Reiki Practitioner, a person has to be attuned to Reiki by a certified Reiki Master, this part of the module cannot be learnt through books. Once attuned, you will begin to feel the energy flowing when you perform Reiki.
Reiki is neither a belief system nor a religion, it is non-intrusive and does not interfere with other treatments or therapies. It is safe and can be administered to anyone regardless of their health status.
The Founder Master, Mikao Usui, trained a number of teachers of this system in his lifetime and one of them was a retired naval officer named Chujiro Hayashi who set up a Reiki Clinic in Tokyo. The practice of Reiki was introduced to the West by a Japanese American lady, Hawayo Takata. From her accounts, Mrs. Takata had gone to Japan in the 1930s to seek alternative treatments for her severe illnesses. She found the Reiki Clinic and sought treatment there with Dr Hayashi and eventually became his student and brought the teachings to the West. Her granddaughter, Phyllis Furamoto, is currently still teaching Reiki in the United States.
