The History of Reiki PDF Print E-mail

There are many theories about the history of Reiki, but the only documentary  evidence we have is from the writings and teachings of Mikao Usui. Our knowledge of the history of Reiki is therefore limited to these, and to the knowledge  handed down from Dr Usui to his students. There are many books on the subject of Reiki, and many Reiki Masters, giving many accounts of the history of Reiki, and  many ways of teaching and practicing Reiki.  

Reiki was discovered by Mikao Usui in the early 1900's. There are various dates given for this (1914, 1921, 1922), with 1914 being the most likely. It is said by some that Mikao Usui merely re-discovered Reiki, that Reiki was a lost ancient art.  

In his writings, Mikao Usui states : "The Usui Reiki Therapy is something no-one before  has discovered, and bears comparison with no other treatment in the world"

Mikao Usui practiced Reiki from his clinic in Tokyo, and held workshops and classes to spread Reiki knowledge. His fame spread throughout Japan, and he was invited to many parts of Japan to give healing. He spent his remaining years in caring for people through healing and teaching Reiki.

Mikao Usui integrated Reiki into the way of living, introducing the Reiki ideals. The ultimate  purpose being to understand the ancient secret method of gaining happiness - Reiki, the Art of Inviting Happiness.

Today, Reiki is practiced by many millions of people around the world.
