Disclaimer — Usui Reiki Ryoho, regardless of the style, does not replace professional medical care.
Gendai Reiki-ho and Komyo Reiki Kai are complementary to professional physical and mental care. It is recommended that you see a licensed physician or licensed health care professional for any physical or psychological challenge you may have. Neither Usui Reiki practitioners nor Usui Reiki Shihans (master instructor/teacher of high standing) can or will diagnosis, prescribe anything, or give a prognosis.
No Usui Reiki practitioner of any level or Usui Reiki Shihan diagnoses any illness, unless he or she is a licensed professional medical provider. Today it is very common for people in different medical professions to study one or more levels of a style honoring Usui Reiki Ryoho. Massage therapists, other therapists, nurses, doctors and others often are allowing Usui Reiki to flow as they treat their patients. This is non intrusive because he higher self of the person receiving automatically recognizes universal energy and if not wanted then it will not flow — the universe allows free will. <read What is Reiki>
