Japanese Reiki, guided meditations and healing herbs take center stage in creating and maintaining wellbeing. 

Gendai Reiki-ho and Komyo Reiki Kai, often called Japanese Reiki, are styles of Usui Reiki Ryoho that follow the quintessence of Mikao Usui’s original spiritual practice as it was practiced in Japan in the 1920s.  The universal vibrations of unconditional love and harmony help manage and heal physical and mental pain in all stages; Usui Reiki flows to what is causing symptoms, rather than masking them.   <What is Reiki>     


 The first question everyone asks is– what style of Reiki do you practice or teach I practice and teach Gendai Reiki-ho and Komyo Reiki Kai, which you see repeated in multiple places.  Gendai Reiki-ho and Komyo Reiki Kai are often called Japanese Reiki because they embrace the quintessence of Usui Sensei’s original method/spiritual practice/healing art, which has no need for anything added in.  <What are Gendai Reiki-ho & Komyo Reiki Kai>


The second question everyone asks iswho did you directly study under and most importantly do you teach and practice as you learned from him or her?  I completed the highest level allowing me to teach, directly from both Hiroshi Doi who founded  Gendai Reiki-ho  and Rev. Hyakuten Inamoto who founded Komyo Reiki Kai.  Each of these Japanese Usui Reiki Shihans (master instructor or advanced teacher) lives in Japan and has only two Japanese Shihans between himself and Mikao Usui the founder.  <learning Gendai Reiki-ho & Komyo Reiki Kai> 


 I honor Doi Sensei (honorable teacher), Hyakuten Sensei and Usui Sensei by practicing and teaching Gendai Reiki-ho and Komyo Reiki Kai as the creator of each style taught me. Because of the levels I have completed and the years I have been practicing I am Shihan (master instructor).  I studied with Hyakuten-Sensei in 2003 before Komyo ReikiDo, so my certificate says Komyo Reiki Kai.  Because I studied directly under Doi Sensei and have not changed Gendai Reiki-ho Natural Healing & Learning Center is certified by Gendai Reiki Healing Kyokai<Shihan Roberta R. Barnes.>


Usui Reiki Ryoho is more than hands-on energy healing; universal love and harmony flows to mind, body, spirit and beyond.  Mind and spirit gently healing together with the body is complete healing, which includes your aura.

Since Mikao Usui’s time much has shifted in the world and a great change in thought has taken place. Fortunately, with the spread of Reikan-ho all those practicing will supplement the way in which thought has changed.  Light has been entwined in spiritual practices and beliefs for centuries; Shihans practicing Japanese styles of Usui Reiki Ryoho often say Reiki light, which is the most beautiful and nourishing light you can imagine.



 Usui Reiki is the universal vibrations of love and harmony, an actual piece of the source of all energy.  These vibrations flow to the core of cells/atoms in mind, body, and spirit together to bring the needed balance & harmony that heals in the best way for the receiver at that junction in time. The balance and harmony naturally flows outward through your energy field (aura) to complete your wellbeing. <healing sessions> 



When practiced as created, Gendai Reiki-ho and Komyo Reiki Kai reflect the essence in which Mikao Usui created Usui Reiki Ryoho, and guide you to easily weave Usui Reiki into your daily life.  Each of these styles take you to a level of awareness, when you are ready, that allows you to move your hands by the feel of vibrations and trust in universal wisdom to heal as needed for the life receiving at that junction in time. Natural health is not a quick fix; it brings needed balance and harmony to atoms like pieces of a puzzle that form the beautiful picture of wellbeing that helps you to life fully with joy. <training in Japanese Reiki>  


As you read on the what are Gendai Reiki-ho & Komyo Reiki kai page 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 also says —“nothing fishy, nothing odd, nothing difficult“.  


Gendai Reiki-ho and Komyo Reiki Kai are ways to weave the quintessence of Usui Reiki Ryoho in everyday life without complications.  As you listen in classes you discover ways in which the balance and harmony flowing through you can heal and bring tranquility, peace and joy to the mind, body and spirit together.  The concept of cell memory is widely known; your mind, body and spirt are all composed of cells and Usui Reiki flows to the core of any cell in need of balance and harmony  <currently scheduled Usui Reiki classes>  


Only positive comes from styles of Usui Reiki Ryoho that honor the quintessence of Mikao Usui‘s original spiritual practice. No two people experience things in the same way, and no two people heal in the same way.  The well-being of the receiver is unique to that person, animal, bird, etc. receiving at that junction in time as universal vibrations flow to the core of what is causing a symptom rather than masking the symptom.  < Reiki Healing sessions>



As with many things in life distorted stories have been told about Reiki.  <Most common Reiki myths>


The spiritual practice Usui Sensei created also 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. of all life forms,   


Included in Gendai Reiki-ho and Komyo Reiki classes are those exercises, techniques and meditations to let go of negative vibrations, feel the difference between harmonic and inharmonic vibrations and resonate with the universal vibrations of unconditional love and harmony.  As your awareness expands you can find that peace, tranquility and joy have become your life’s internal GPS. Universal energy does not have office hours or take holidays off; once your pathway is open for Usui Reiki to flow it is always there for you.    <learning Gendai Reiki-ho/Komyo Reiki Kai>    


Usui Reiki  cannot be measured, manipulated, or touched, but it is as real and healthy as the pure air you breathe. <what is Reiki> 

Usui Reiki flows to the cause of the symptoms  and then shines outward through all atoms, including those in your energy field (aura).  Scientific professional Medicine in is front line care, and after the physician had treated you then the healing can begin with Usui Reiki.  When Usui Reiki is added with scientific medical care the healing is faster and better that expected, and less pain medication is needed,  <healing sessions>  


 The Komyo Reiki Kai’s Motto is “Go placidly in the midst of praise or blame”. Gendai Reiki Ho is dedicated to practicing Usui Reiki Ryoho with ease in  day-to-day life by means of simplified techniques.  These Japanese styles of Usui Reiki Ryoho are integrated healing at its best.     <Japanese Reiki Simple yet Profound>  


When your mind, body and spirit are in-balance and with harmony your wellbeing improves, the quality of your life improves, and you are more harmonious.   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.  

 What lies behind you and what lies before you is nothing compared to what lies within you now/this present moment; now is the perfect time to schedule a healing session or register for classes in either Gendai Reiki-ho or Komyo Reiki Kai.  The younger a person is, the fewer filters (blocks) have been created, which makes aligning with universal love and harmony much easier. This is one of the reasons I teach the Pre-Shoden level for young children <read more>. 

 If you are a massage therapist you can receive continuing education credits because  I am an Approved Provider by the NCBTMB.  Once you have completed any level in Gendai Reiki -ho or Komyo Reiki KAi you can give your client’s something extra without changing the way you already do massages.


Japanese Usui Reiki Ryoho is integrated healing at is best, which

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”.   

When you study Gendai Reiki-ho or Komyo Reiki you are guided to resonate with the universal vibrations of unconditional love and harmony and simply allow them to flow through you without having to ‘do’ anything.  You are a human being, and not a human doing.   <learning Gendai Reiki-ho & Komyo Reiki Kai

I was once asked why is my aura dirty?  That was in response to me explaining that Usui Reiki includes activating and cleansing your chakras, and cleansing all in your aura.  When you are studying Gendai Reiki-hi or Komyo Reiki Kai one of the exercises in the first class in the Shoden  level is an exercise that besides balance and harmony flowing to all atoms in your mind, body and spirit any negative in the your energy field (aura) is pushed out and replaced with vibrations of universal unconditional love and harmony.


Usui Reiki is not something you turn off and on with symbols or other words; it is something that does not cause any harm.  Once your pathway has been opened by a qualified Usui Reiki Shihan vibrations of love and harmony gently weave into all areas of your life touching all in the positive way that is best at that junction in time. 

All the Japanese exercises, technique and meditations guide you to resonate with the universal healing balance and harmony so that you can allow Usui Reiki to flow without conscious thought or material objects.  Being walked through all of this requires at least 12 hours in classes, but what you gain stays with you for the rest of your life. I break each level down in multiple classes so that you can easily assimilate all the material without feeling overwhelmed.  <Reiki classes>  


Experience natural healing energy

 You are much more than the atoms that make up your physical body. 

Whether it is the meditations you learn in Usui Reiki Ryoho or other deep meditation you can find that place within you with unlimited possibilities.


With time the natural abilities you were born with can become overshadowed by the opinions of others, experiences  or technology.  Having a Japanese Reiki healing session, studying in classes  the quintessence of the original spiritual practice Usui Sensei created, or enjoying my original guided meditations privately or in workshops can help you connect with a beautiful side of yourself that may have been dormant, 

 Making a connection with your authentic universal true self is a way to define yourself .  When you define yourself you can move forward in the best way for you.  <guided meditation and Reiki healing packages> 


You were born with the ability to go beyond your common senses; as you practice exercises in Gendai Reiki-ho and Komyo Reiki Kai classes, or experience the guided meditations that I give, you can find yourself going beyond the ordinary levels of consciousness.  One of the goals in Gendai Reiki-ho is connecting with your true universal self. <learning Gendai Reiki-ho>

You can experience my original guided meditations in private sessions or attended one of my workshops such as Down the Rabbit Hole to see how far down the rabbit hole you want to go.  Some people find they can go even deeper more easily when scheduling one f my packages. <read more>  


 One of the benefits in Japanese styles of Usui Reiki Ryoho and meditation is that they increase your awareness; you notice more in the world around you and can be fully present in each moment.  <how to melt stress>

As you learn to focus you notice more of the beauty in the world and you can see unlimited possibilities rather than limitations.  Being fully present in the moment and letting go of stress, mind clutter and outside chatter can do more for you then most any gadget.<Meditation & Beyond>



Join with the many people around the world who are enjoying the simple healing balance and harmony of the profound healing spiritual practice that Mikao Usui founded in 1922.

2013 center summer 2

As reflected by the classes in Gendai Reiki-ho and Komyo Reiki Kai in my healing studio in Maine, Usui Sensei’s original spiritual practice brings the healing light of Reiki healing and learning in Maine balance and harmony

  in every season.

Usui Reiki is much like the natural snow that falls from the sky without human interaction.  Universal energy is all around us, but the vibrations of unconditional love and harmony require a body to flow through whose pathway has been opened by a qualified Usui Reiki Ryoho Shihan. 

There are many things you may see around you that need to change.  Some very brilliant and amazing people in our world have pointed out that the best was to make change is to be the change.  Gendai Reiki-ho and Komyo Reiki Kai can help you change if needed to be the change.


     When every corner of this world is in-balance and with harmony 

                                               there will be World Peace.
