This is more than hands-on energy healing. It is a spiritual healing practice that gently heals in ways sometimes not seen by human eyes but experienced at all levels of mind, body and spirit.  The well-being you experience is beyond words. <read what is Reiki>

Japanese Reiki classes & meditationNested in nature you can experience universal energy in nourishing Japanese Reiki healing sessions, study any of the 4 levels of Gendai Reiki-ho or Komyo Reiki Kai or experience guided meditations for self-discovery.  

 Usui Reiki Ryoho following the essence in which it was created and practiced in Japan in the 1920s can improve the quality of your life in all areas. Gendai Reiki-ho and Komyo Reiki Kai follow this essence that leads to health and happiness.  These styles are often called Traditional Japanese Reiki, or simply Japanese Reiki, because they honor Usui Sensei’s original spiritual practice using the universal vibrations of love and harmony.  <What are Gendai Reiki-ho and Komyo Reiki Kai> >

Gendai Reiki-ho translates as ‘Modern Reiki method for healing’ but as you can read on the what is Gendai Reiki-ho & Komyo Reiki kai  page what translates into English as modern has a deeper meaning. Hiroshi Doi Sensei says Gendai Reiki-ho is—“nothing fishy, nothing odd, nothing difficult; it is a way to weave Usui Reiki into your daily life. Because I studied directly under Hiroshi Doi, Natural Healing & Learning Center is certified by Gendai Reiki Healing Kyokai

There are Storm Chasers. There are also disease chasers who often go under different scientific medical titles.  The method that Mikao Usui created steps away from chasing what is wrong.  Styles of Usui Reiki Ryoho that honor Usui Sensei’s essence focus on well-being the healing vibrations of universal energy that bring the balance and harmony that is best for the whole person, animal, bird and all form of life and even events.

The first thing everyone asks is What style of Reiki?  This is why I put Gendai Reiki-ho and Komyo Reiki Kai at the top of this page.  One of the beautiful things about all styles using this beautiful piece of pure universal energy is that no one claims his or her style is the best.

The second thing asked is, Who did you study under and do you teach as you learned from him or her?  I studied directly under both Hiroshi Doi and Rev. Hyakuten Inamoto who each not only have only two Shihans between themselves and Mikao Usui the founder but honor the essence in which Usui Sensei created Usui Reiki Ryoho.  I honor them both by practicing and teaching Gendai Reiki-ho and Komyo Reiki Kai as they taught me.  I studied with Hyakuten Sensei in 2003 before Kai was changed to Do<Shihan Roberta R. Barnes.>


Only positive comes from any style of Usui Reiki Ryoho that honors the essence in which Mikao Usui created this healing art. Usui Reiki (a piece of universal rather than a form) flows to the core of cells in mind, body and spirit to achieve the balance and harmony that produces well-being for the life receiving.  Healing mind, spirt , and body together is important; many illnesses begin as emotions injuries can be complicated by emotions. and made worse by beliefs  <what is Usui Reiki>


In Gendai Reiki-ho and Komyo Reiki you learn to feel vibrations and let them guide your rather than being controlled by complicated hand positions and symbols.  You learn how vibrations guide your hands to where they are best placed for the life receiving at that junction on time and your focus is on health and happiness.   The Japanese exercises and techniques beginning in the first level allow you to develop and expand your awareness.  As your awareness expands peace, tranquility and joy can become your life’s internal GPS.  <learning Gendai Reiki-ho or Komyo Reiki Kai>  


The original way in which Usui Sensei created Usui Reiki Ryoho is not complicated once your bench your analytical mind.  The essence is to focus on healing and wellbeing of the whole life form; it does not focus on the disease.  < What is Usui Reiki>

 In a Japanese Reiki healing session you simply sit or lay fully clothed and while the wave of universal love and harmony flows to the core of atoms in need in your mind, body and spiritUsui Reiki flows to the cause of the symptoms and shines outward through all including your energy field (aura), rather than masking the symptoms. Healing continues to happen for days following the session. This is complete healing to bring you to a state of well-being that is best for you.  <healing sessions>  

Focusing on the love and harmony flowing through you when you are relaxing in healing sessions or doing one of the meditations in Gendai Reiki-ho or Komyo Reiki Kai, puts out positive vibrations. The universe allows freewill so the vibrations you put out through your thoughts and actions form your path in your life; learning either of these Japanese styles can help you create your right path.  


 The Komyo Reiki Kai Motto: “Go placidly in the midst of praise or blame”. (As you learn about Usui Sensei’s first awakening you understand the importance of this motto.)

Gendai Reiki Ho is dedicated to practicing Usui Reiki Ryoho with ease in  day-to-day life by means of simplified techniques.   <read more> 

These styles of Usui Reiki Ryoho are integrated healing at its best.            


This spiritual practice Usui Sensei created does not know discrimination; it is for all people, animals, birds, and other life forms.  The healing balance and harmony flows only as needed to mind, body, spirit, and the chakras and  light body centers within the energy field (aura),  

When your mind, body and spirit are in-balance your well-being improves, the quality of your life improves from within and your harmonious vibrations touch all those around you.

   Have you ever noticed that harmonious people are the healthiest and happiest?

Learning Gendai Reiki-ho or Komyo Reiki Kai taught as they were created by Hiroshi Doi and Rev. Hyakuten Inamoto can help you to uncover your true universal self; the finest and brightest within you combined with universal love an harmony then becomes your life’s GPS. 

The Usui Gokai (five principles) is the key to health and happiness. As Buddha said, “there is no path to happiness, happiness is the path”.  Happier people are usually more sociable, productive, energetic, more likely to be in satisfying relationships, and generally live longer. 

Beginning in Shoden (level one) exercises help you to expand your conscious awareness. As this expands you can see the beauty in the caterpillar before it becomes the delicate butterfly.  In Gendai Reiki-ho & Komyo Reiki Kai classes you are also guided to see beyond your eyes’ image.

In the Chuden & Okuden levels you are guided to let balance and harmony flow to vibrations from your past that might be bringing your vibrations down today. What lies behind you and what lies before you is nothing compared to what lies within you now.  <Learn Gendai Reiki-ho & Komyo Reiki Kai>

The awareness you can gain through Gendai Reiki-ho and komyo Reiki kai allows you to experience those small yet powerful rays of sunshine, and smiles tucked beneath the leaves you do not see in the fast lane of life.  With awareness without ego you can learn to add light to any dark corner in your life.

Following any illness, accident, or other trauma healing is required for the whole self, Usui Reiki flows to mind, body and spirit together as needed. 

Learning the Integrated healing of Gendai Reiki-ho and Komyo Reiki Kai not only improves the quality of your life, but contributes to the health and happiness of other people and animals, birds, etc.  Since Usui Reiki Ryoho left Japan distorted stories have been created. <read Reiki myths>


The younger we are 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 can improve the quality of             

your life in all areas. 

Japanese Usui Reiki Ryoho such as Gendai Reiki-ho and Komyo Reiki Kai focuses on helping the whole life form (people, animals, etc.) return to the natural state of well-being that is best for the  life receiving at that junction in time. 


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”.   


Experience natural healing energy

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

Through the centuries the natural abilities we are born with have at times been overshadowed by the opinions of others and technology.  When guided through these Japanese styles of Usui Reiki Ryoho that I teach, practice and live, and my guided meditations you can find yourself letting go and opening up to your natural abilities and a beautiful side of life you might not have seen. As well as the Japanese Reiki classes and healing sessions I offer various guided meditation workshops and private guided meditation sessions that can take you into a past life .  Making a connection with your authentic universal self can be very rewarding.  < guided meditation and Reiki healing packages> 


 Your Subconscious is  your reservoir of intuitive wisdom, which I can help you to access through Japanese styles of Usui Reiki and my guided meditation therapy in private sessions and workshops. 

You were born with the ability to go deep within yourself beyond your common senses; as you practice what you are opened to  in Gendai Reiki-ho and Komyo Reiki Kai classes, or the guided meditations that I give, you can find yourself going beyond the ordinary levels of consciousness.   <Guided meditations into your past >

My guided meditation therapy consists of original guided meditations that flow with each client or those in the workshop.  Because I am Japanese Usui Reiki Shihan, balance and harmony is automatically present when doing a past life journey (regression); having first a full Reiki healing session gives you double the benefits.

Guided meditation and the exercises in Japanese Usui Reiki help you to be truly in the present moment. Being fully present in the moment and letting go of stress and outside chatter can do more for you then any gadget.


Join with the many people around the world who are  enjoying, the simple healing balance and harmony in the profound healing art that Mikao Usui founded.

As reflected by the classes in Gendai Reiki-ho and Komyo Reiki Kai I teach 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 naturally 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


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

there will be World Peace.
