What is Reiki?

The Sun has been producing Reiki energy constantly from the universe. The energy is extraordinary rapid compared to the physical energy and pulsates microscopically. It is important for the healer to harmonize with the wavelength of the Reiki energy from the universe. To achieve this harmonization, Reiki practitioners will appreciate that they can use their ability for the patients.

The patients themselves are essentially receptive to Reiki energy, but when they are weakened their ability is dormant. Reiki healing works to awaken and revitalize those abilities possessed by the patient through the Reiki practitioner.

The Reiki practitioner receives Reiju (attunements) from Reiki masters to be able to transmit the Reiki energy to the patient. There is also the use of Shirushi (Symbol) that is used by the practitioner to harness more Reiki energy if required. Jikiden Reiki is pure, simple and effective.



The true name of Reiki is Shinshin Kaizen Usui Reiki Ryoho. Reiki treatment is an art of hand healing for the purpose of body and mind improvement. It was developed by Mikao Usui in 1922. There were more than one million people who practiced Jikiden Reiki before the Second World War happened.

Chujiro Hayashi, one of the direct student of Usui took over the instruction of the Reiki. Then Chiyoko Yamaguchi, one of the direct student of Hayashi took over the method as Jikiden Reiki with her son, Tadao Yamaguchi.

After the passing of Chiyoko Yamaguchi (2003), her son Tadao Yamaguchi continues to keep initiating the traditional method in Japan and all over the world. Jikiden Reiki was conceived in Japan and flourishes to this day.

The predominant form of Reiki originally came from the Usui Reiki Ryouhou. This form of Reiki passed through Hawaii, then to the rest of the North American continent and the world.

In recent years there has been a revival or interest in the pure authentic origins of Japanese Reiki by many Reiki Masters outside of Japan. Therefore Chiyoko Yamaguchi and her son Tadao Yamaguchi who reside in Kyoto, Japan started to teach Jikiden Reiki to all who search for this indigenous healing art.

Jikiden means “directly passed down”.
