"Usui Reiki Treatment for the Improvement of Body & Mind.."
-the founder Usui Mikao
Reiki is an ancient healing system that was re-discovered in the mid 1800’s by a Japanese scholar/philosopher named Dr. Mikao Usui. Dr. Usui went on a quest in search of enlightenment. He began studying Buddhism and lived in a monastery with Zen monks, in which he also became.
He meditated & fasted on a sacred mountainside for twenty one days, in search for answers. On the final morning of his quest, Dr. Usui received the answers he was looking for. He was struck in his third eye by an incredible white light, losing consciousness for some time. Upon awakening, beautiful keys of Reiki were bestowed upon him through his Crown Chakra known as the Reiki symbols.
He returned home using these symbols and his newly acquired skills.. unearthing the great healing method we call Reiki. Dr. Usui went on to teach and attune a number of Reiki Masters before his death in 1926. One of whom was Grand Master Chujiro Hayashi.
Dr. Hayashi treated Mrs. Hawayo Takata, a Hawaiian woman of Japanese descent and in very poor health. She was healed within months. Her experience led her to become a student and Master of Reiki upon Dr. Hayashi’s death in 1940. Mrs. Hawayo Takata was responsible for bringing Reiki to the Western world.
Today Reiki is practiced worldwide, is suitable for everyone and all faiths. Reiki is increasing in popularity as more people are now seeking a more holistic approach to their health and wellbeing!
