This is Reiki

Jikiden Reiki is a Japanese art of hands-on healing founded by Dr. Mikao Usui in 1922. It is highly effective at promoting relaxation, which activates the body’s innate healing abilities. For over 100 years, this natural therapy has been used to assist in healing physical, emotional, and psychological issues. The original teachings were forced to go underground during WWII, and with its recent re-emergence, many people are now experiencing the benefits of this subtle and non-invasive healing modality.

What is Jikiden Reiki?

Jikiden Reiki is a specialized and revered branch of traditional Reiki, known for its unwavering dedication to preserving the original teachings of Mikao Usui, the founder of Reiki. The term "Jikiden" translates to "directly passed down" or "authentic." Jikiden Reiki was developed by Tadao Yamaguchi and his mother, Chiyoko Yamaguchi, and is now being taught throughout the world.


One of the distinguishing features of Jikiden Reiki is its adherence to the original hand positions, symbols, and practices as taught by Mikao Usui avoiding any Westernized modifications that other Reiki branches may have adopted over time. In Jikiden Reiki, the use of Japanese language and cultural elements is paramount to honor the practice's Japanese roots. This includes the use of Japanese names for symbols and techniques, fostering a deeper connection to the heritage of Reiki. Simplicity is a core tenet of Jikiden Reiki, emphasizing the fundamentals of healing, harnessing the innate power of Reiki energy, and maintaining clear intention.


Benefits and Significance of Jikiden Reiki

Jikiden Reiki is an effective healing modality, capable of reducing stress, promoting relaxation, alleviating pain, and supporting emotional well-being. Practitioners often report personal growth and increased self-awareness through their Jikiden Reiki journey. In essence, Jikiden Reiki stands as a unique and respected approach to traditional Reiki healing, characterized by its commitment to authenticity, historical reverence, and the timeless power of Reiki energy.


The Five Principles of Reiki


The Five Principles of Reiki are a fundamental aspect of Reiki philosophy that guide practitioners in living a balanced and intentional life. These principles, known as the "Gokai" in Japanese, were developed by Mikao Usui as a way to promote spiritual and emotional growth, emphasizing the importance of self-awareness and personal development. They encourage individuals to cultivate qualities such as gratitude, kindness, and inner peace, fostering not only physical healing but also emotional and spiritual well-being.
