About Reiki

Reiki or ‘Usui’s spiritual energy treatment method for the improvement of body and mind’ as described by its founder Mikao Usui Sensei, is a completely natural hands-on healing method.

During a treatment, you receive in greater abundance spiritual or universal energy that flows all around us and in all life. It is passed on to you through a light touch of the hands and will help clear blockages, stimulating and enhancing your own healing ability.

Simple, pure and effective, Reiki works on both physical and emotional level.

Jikiden Reiki

Jikiden means direct teaching

The Jikiden Reiki Kenkyukai (Institute) was founded in 1999 by Chiyoko Yamaguchi and her son Tadao Yamaguchi to preserve the true essence of Reiki and the traditional teaching as it was originally taught in Japan.

After a wonderful first experience discovering and learning western Reiki in Edinburgh, I came across Frank Arjava Petter’s book ‘This is Reiki’. I started to understand more about the origin of Reiki, its background, the links with the Japanese traditions and Shinto. This is also how I discovered that Reiki was still taught as it was originally taught in Japan and I went on to learn with Arjava Sensei, Vice-President of the Jikiden Reiki Kenkyukai (Institute).

Connected to its origin, simple and practical, Jikiden Reiki felt just right to me and this is how I wish to keep practicing and pass on Reiki, following the guidance of our original teachers.

“Traditional Japanese Reiki and the Reiki that has come through Takata Sensei have one very important thing in common: the energy that radiates from the hands of the practitioner, providing that he has been properly initiated.”
