The history of Reiki starts in Japan. Reiki is an old technique that was rediscovered by a Christian missionary in Japan. Dr. Mikao Usui wanted to find the techniques used by Jesus and
Buddha to heal. Dr. Usui passed on his knowledge to two other founders of the modern Reiki movement Mr. Hayashi and Mrs. Tanaka.
Dr. Mikao Usui is the founder of Reiki Ryoho. Dr. Chujiro Hayashi was a Naval Commander in the Naval Reserve. He came from a well-educated and well-to-do family. He met Dr. Usui and learned Reiki from him. Mrs. Hawaii Tanaka was born in Hawaii, of Japanese descent. Mrs. Takana brought Reiki to the west and she trained 22 Reiki masters. They have since then been training more people mainly in the USA . Today in the United States, Reiki is used mostly as a
relaxing technique. Most
Reiki massage therapists have training in
Reiki and apply this knowledge during the regular massage.
