Benefits of studying Japanese Usui Reiki styles

Japanese Usui Reiki may sound redundant. 

Nevertheless, it is the Learning Japanese Reikiway many people refer the styles of Usui Reiki Ryoho ceated in Japan that have stayed true to the essence in which Mikao Usui created this original healing art, and was practiced in Japan in the 1920s.

When learning Usui Sensei’s original practice, you can fill every moment with balance and harmony while letting go negative energy.  Usui Reiki Ryoho improves the quality of your life in the best way for the one receiving or practicing at that junction in time, without complicated rituals, symbols or material objects.

A common question is what can Japanese Usui Reiki Ryoho do for me? The quick answer is, improve the quality of your life and the lives around you.

Just as there is no certain colored pill that will heal everyone of a certain illness, there is no hand position that will help everyone heal for certain diseases or injuries .

Usui Reiki Ryoho as originally created by Usui Sensei recognizes that each life form and each illness and injury is unique and help healing in that way.

Beginning in the Shoden level (first teachings), you are shown how to feel inharmonic vibrations and the vibrations we call Usui Reiki. Feeling vibrations allows you to know where is best to place you hands and how long to hold them in that place; it takes yo beyond designated hand positions. 


As you are walked through the exercises in classes you uncover the best and safest way for both practitioner and receiver to allow Usui Reiki to flow to people, animals, birds, and other life forms.

In progressing  through the levels you understand how vibrations of love and harmony can connect with the vibrations of past and future events. Once the connection is made, practitioners and Shihans (master instructor) can easily allow Usui Reiki to flow at any time in any place, while keeping the ego and emotions out of the mix.


In the second level of Gendai Reiki-ho and Komyo Reiki Kai you are introduced to an exercise that translates into deprogramming/out of brainwashing.  This is very helpful when the media or people around you are continuously focused on one subject even after the facts have been presented. What you focus on you give energy to, and as you learn in classes the focus of Gendai Reiki-ho and Komyo Reiki Kai is wellbeing.


The base in all 4 levels of Gendai Reiki-ho and Komyo Reiki Kai is the Usui Gokai; when you are living the Gokai, weaving health and happiness into your life naturally happens and wellbeiong follows.


 Unlike scientific medical practices Usui Reiki Ryoho is not broken down into People Reiki and Animal Reiki; Usui Reiki flows equally to all life forms. Once your pathway to Usui Reiki has been opened by a qualified Shihan you can allow Usui Reiki to flow to all life forms. 

Usui Reiki does not mask symptoms; it flows to the core of what is causing the symptoms and begins and enhances the healing.  Usui Sensei said when the spirit is healed the body naturally follows; Usui reiki flows to mind, body and spirit together. 

As the universal vibrations of love and harmony create the balance and harmony required for healing it also shines outward healing all cells/atoms it passes through, including your energy field (aura). 


Usui Reiki, which comes with universal wisdom, does not put organs, systems, emotions, meridian lines, chakras, light body centers or anything else in separate boxes that require separate healing.  Usui Reiki flows to all atoms in need regardless of where they are located in, on or around the life form receiving.


When you take the time to study under a qualified Usui Reiki Ryoho Shihan, you can learn;


With all the technology in today’s world we can be overwhelmed by artificial energy. Usui Reiki is a pure piece of ‘the’ source; the vibrations of pure unconditional love and harmony.  The source cannot be made better and knowing this relieves the worry of how to make it better. 


 The Shoden level  (first teachings) focuses on self-healing to help you have mental clarity and move forward on the right path for you; in classes you learn about mastering the mysteries of life.


Gendai Reiki-ho and Komyo Reiki kai honor Usui Sensei’s by maintaining the essence of it being a “Method to Achieve Personal Perfection”.  Everyone needs help at some point in his or her life, but when you learn the essence in which Usui Sensei created his spiritual practice you learn how to be your own therapist. <learning Japanese Usui Reiki Ryoho> 


During surgery your conscious is anesthetized, but you subconscious hears and remembers every word spoken by all those around you. 



Traumas of any kind go beyond physical injury; an imbalance in your mind and spirit can not only hamper physical healing but can worsen physical injuries. 

Energy precedes matter so instantly you can see how a piece of universal energy can detox your mind, body and spirit.  Sometimes this detox is all that is needed. 


Sometimes the natural healer within can malfunction.  While Usui Reiki flows to all  in mind, body and spirit it also flows to restore and enhance the inner healer; it then keesp the inner healer on track.   


Following are a  few of the things that can be noticed when the mind, body, and spirit’s healing rhythm is enhanced by the universal vibrations of love and harmony called Usui Reiki.










  • The side-effects of disagreements with your parent(s), brother(s), sister(s), friend(s), teacher(s), child(ren), spouse, landlord, or boss melt as the feelings from those disagreements are surrounded with harmony.



Gendai Reiki Ho and Komyo Reiki Kai are complementary medicine and when Usui Reiki is blended into medications and professional medical treatments many pleasant effects have been documented.

Usui Reiki Ryoho have been, and is today, used to help in hospital emergency rooms, operating rooms, organ transplantation care units, pediatric, varying cancer treatments, neonatal and OB/GYN units, schools and many other areas.


Being universal energy Usui Reiki does not mask symptoms. It promotes healing of the whole person in the way that is best for that individual at that moment in time (Now). The universe also does not discriminate so Japanese Usui Reiki will flow to all life forms.


Now is important because prior minutes/ hours/days you cannot change and those minutes/ hours/days not yet here you cannot live.  As the Zen quote say, Now is all you have. 


With certain challenges, the person may never go back to the level of physical or mental activity he or she enjoyed prior to the injuries, but balance & harmony allow him or her to enjoy life Now.


Usui Reiki flows to bring balance in a way so that in the present moment the person can feel healthy even with limitations, and find joy in living and loving  fully. Health is not the absence of disease, it is much more.
