A BRIEF HISTORY OF REIKI
By Marianne Streich, Reiki Master Teacher/Practitioner
The system of natural healing known in the West as Reiki was developed in Japan early in the last century by Mikao Usui, a widely traveled man who was educated in many disciplines. Usui established a clinic in Tokyo and traveled throughout Japan, treating the sick and teaching Reiki. He died in 1926 at the age of 62. In the mid-1930s, Hawayo Takata, an American of Japanese descent, visited the Tokyo clinic of one of Usui’s students, Dr. Chujiro Hayashi. Following her recovery from several serious health conditions, she remained in Japan to study with Dr. Hayashi. Mrs. Takata returned to Hawaii in the late 1930s and established a clinic in Hilo. She began teaching Reiki on the U.S. mainland in the 1970’s. Before her death in 1980 she had trained 22 teachers (Masters). Reiki has spread rapidly throughout the world in the years since, and practitioners are now found in almost every country.
WHAT IS REIKI?
Reiki is a Japanese healing practice that reduces stress and activates the body’s healing processes. It is accomplished through gentle touch or with the hands slightly above the body. A warm and soothing energy flows from the hands of the practitioner into the recipient, releasing tension, creating relaxation, and facilitating healing. The energy used is not the practitioner’s, but the subtle life force energy that flows through and around all of life.

HOW DOES REIKI WORK?
Reiki works through the energy field that surrounds and flows through the body. A person is healthier when energy flows freely throughout their energy field. Energy can become blocked as a result of many factors. These blockages can cause or contribute to unhealthy physical, mental, or emotional conditions. Reiki removes blockages and helps to create a healthy flow of energy, resulting in improved health and well-being.
