Japanese Reiki classes & meditation

As Hippocrates said,  “The physician treats, but nature heals.”  

  Being pain free with a clear head is a beautiful way to live every present moment. Your life is collect of present moments.   Japanese styles of Usui Reiki Ryoho, Meditation, Guided Meditation, and Healing herbs take center stage in creating and maintaining wellbeing.

Gendai Reiki ho and Komyo Reiki Kai are styles of Usui Reiki Ryoho created in Japan that honor the way in which Mikao Usui created his original Usui Reiki Ryoho. 

Usui Reiki Ryoho goes beyond hands-on-healing and heals mind, body and spirit together as they are not separate; what affects one affects the others.  When all are healing together wellbeing naturally happens, leading to the heath & happiness that improves the quality of life   <read what is Reiki >

Some of the wisest people throughout the ages have said that love and harmony are the strongest of vibrations.  What we have come to call Usui Reiki is the universal vibrations of unconditional love and harmony that flow to the core of the atoms at the source of an illness or injury creating balance and surrounding with harmony. What is in balance and with harmony heals,  At the core of the atoms Usui Reiki then shines outward as it continues healing as needed. This Reiki Light shines out through even the auric body healing(energy field) at a unique level that creates wellbeing.


The first question everyone asks is, What style of Reiki do you practice or teach?  I (Shihan Roberta Barnes) practice and teach Gendai Reiki-ho and Komyo Reiki Kai, often called Japanese Reiki.  Each of these styles was created in Japan by a Japanese Shihan (master instructor/teacher of high standing) and each embraces the quintessence of Usui Sensei’s (honorable teacher) original spiritual practice as practiced in Japan in the 1920s. 

While the vibrations of universal energy are the same, different styles are practiced in different ways.  <read What are Gendai Reiki-ho & Komyo Reiki Kai>


The second question everyone asks is,  Who did you directly study under, and most importantly do you teach and practice as you learned from him or her?  I (Shihan Roberta Barnes) was blessed to be able to complete the highest level allowing me to teach, directly under Hiroshi Doi who founded Gendai Reiki-ho, and Rev. Hyakuten Inamoto who founded Komyo Reiki Kai. 

I respect each of these Japanese Shihan’s knowledge coming from having only two Japanese Shihans between himself and Mikao Usui and, and his  dedication to keeping the piece of universal energy pure.  I teach each style as the creator of each style taught me.  <Shihan Roberta R. Barnes>

Usui Reiki is light, in its true nature it is pure light”. international © 1999  A Traditional Japanese Reiki healing session is a way to heal mind, body and spirit together and maintain wellbeing.  Being in a state of wellbeing prior to an accident or illness helps you heal faster and better than expected.   <read more about healing sessions>.


Usui Reiki does not mask symptoms; it flows to the cause of the illness, injury, pain, etc to begin and speed healing.  Usui Reiki enhances scientific medical treatments in the way best for the receiver; injuries heal faster and better than expected. 

Each person is unique and each illness or injury is unique. Gendai Reiki-ho and Komyo Reiki Kai honor that uniqueness;  in healing sessions Usui Reiki flows as needed to restore wellbeing to mind, body and spirit together. <becoming a Gendai Reiki-ho practitioner> 

A Japanese Reiki technique is used to determine the areas in need balance and harmony.  As practiced in Japan in the 1920s the piece of universal energy we now call Usui Reiki flows to the area in need, and once the atoms have taken all the energy they can hold at that time Usui Reiki stops flowing.     <what are healing sessions> 


Your body is 73% to 90% water; water is one of the most receptive elements resulting in the molecules changing to replicate the vibrations surrounding them. Imagine the beauty within you when unconditional love and harmony from the highest dimensions is surrounding your molecules.  

 Your life force energy, Ki/Qi energy, and energy in meridian lines can become stagnate, and your inner healer can malfunction. Usui Reiki being a piece of universal energy of the highest dimensions can restore the flow of those energies. It complements other healing modalities so that injuries treated by a licensed healing professional can heal faster and better than expected when Usui Reiki is added into the healing process.   <What is Reiki, What is Usui reiki ,What is Usui Reiki Ryoho>       

Learning a style of Usui Reiki Ryoho that has come purely from Japan is a wonderful life choice for you and those around you.     When studying Gendai Reiki-ho or Komyo Reiki Kai you are shown the key to health and happiness in the first class of Shoden (first teachings) level.  

Happier people are usually more sociable, productive, energetic, more likely to be in satisfying relationships, and generally live longer.    All that you gain from the hours in classes in each level become part of your daily life as the quality of your life improves .   <learning Japanese Usui Reiki >

  Continuing Education ProviderI am an Approved Provider by the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage & Body work (NCBTMB) for continuing education credits. After completing any level in Gendai Reiki-ho or Komyo Reiki Kai you can give your client’s that extra without changing the way you already do massages.  Also, in each of the first 3 levels you are shown a technique that you add into your sessions for extra healing when appropriate. 

   Gendai Reiki-ho has a much deeper meaning than the English translation of ‘Modern Reiki method for healing’Hiroshi Doi Sensei,  founder of Gendai Reiki-ho says —“nothing fishy, nothing odd, nothing difficult“. international ©  <learning Gendai Reiki-ho & Komyo Reiki Kai>

Universal love and harmony is flowing through you after your first empowerment, and through exercises in classes you are guided to weave Usui Reiki naturally into all areas of your life and connect with your true universal self.    <currently scheduled Usui Reiki classes>    

Natural healing is not a quick fix that covers up symptoms and ignores the causeUsui Reiki Ryoho purposes are to help people or other life forms to be stronger and healthier in mind, body and spirit, which is the key to health and happiness.


Only positive comes from styles of Usui Reiki Ryoho that honor the quintessence of Mikao Usui‘s original spiritual practice. <what is Reiki>

The spiritual practice Usui Sensei created does not discriminate; it is for all people, animals, birds, and other life forms.  The healing balance and harmony flows as needed to mind, body, and spirit–including chakras, light body centers, etc. in all life forms,   <healing sessions>


As with many things in life, distorted stories have been told but they do not distort Usui Sensei’s original spiritual practice,  My sources are those with very close lineages to Mikao Usui as you see on my What is Reiki page.  <most common Reiki myths>

 As your awareness expands through the hours in Gendai Reiki-ho and Komyo Reiki Kai classes and practice,  peace, tranquility and joy can become your life’s internal GPS. 


Universal energy does not have office hours, take holidays off or have complicated rituals. 

 Just as gravity does not require symbols to bring anything down once it has been thrown into the air, Usui Reiki does not require Reiki symbols for it to flow; Reiki symbols are training wheels to help studenta advance to a point where they are no longer needed.

Usui Reiki  cannot be measured, manipulated, or touched, but it is as real as the pure air you breathe and the gravity that keeps your feet on the ground. <what is Reiki> 

In Gendai Reiki-ho and Komyo Reiki kai you discover that the importance and joy is not the certificate received, but in the journey. As a person advances on the Usui Reiki Ryoho journey he or she learns to feel the rhythm of the universe.    <learning Gendai Reiki-ho/Komyo Reiki Kai>  


   After a physician, or other medical care professional, has done the treatment the healing can then begin with Usui Reiki flowing to where it is most needed; Usui Reiki Ryoho is complementary to all positive healing modalities and heals in the way best for the life receiving. <healing sessions>   

   Weaving Usui Reiki into all areas of your life, as you learn in Gendai Reiki-ho and Komyo Reiki Kai classes, improves the quality of your lifeand helps you beharmonious.  Have you ever noticed that harmonious people are the healthiest and happiest?  Happier people are usually more sociable, productive, energetic, more likely to be in satisfying relationships, and generally live longer.  <learning Gendai Reiki-ho or Komyo Reiki Kai>

 “There is no path to happiness, happiness is the path”.– Buddha



 Usui Reiki Ryoho, that has not been altered, is integrated healing at is best; it  

can improve the quality of your life in all areas. 


This integrated healing is not a new idea, as we see in Plato’s words–“The cure of the part should not be attempted without treatment of the whole”.   What lies behind you and what lies before you is nothing compared to what lies within you now/this present moment


Once you let go the mind clutter alleging that healing must be complicated, you see that Usui Reiki Ryoho is profoundAs Usui Sensei created, Usui Reiki Ryoho returns the life receiving to its natural state of wellbeing that is best at that present moment.  <Read more>

2013 center summer 2As you can see reflected by the classes in Gendai Reiki-ho and Komyo Reiki Kai, and healing sessions  in my healing studio in Maine — Usui Sensei’s original spiritual practice brings the healing light of balance and harmony in every seasonReiki healing and learning in Maine .

 Usui Reiki is much like the sun that shines, trees that grow and snow that falls from the sky without human interaction.  Universal energy is all around us, but the vibrations of unconditional love and harmony from the highest dimensions require a body to flow through whose pathway has been opened by a qualified Usui Reiki Ryoho Shihan.  <learning Gendai Reiki-ho–Komyo Reiki Kai>

 Your life is a collection of present moments; when each moment is filled with balance and harmony health and happiness naturally follow. –Shihan Roberta R. Barnes 2004
