What Reiki Is:

Dr. Mikao Usui, a Japanese theologian and originator of the system, explains, "Reiki Ryoho is a spiritual healing technique and an energy healing technique."

Reiki Energy International members believe that as well as the following four statements:

  1. Reiki utilizes Universal Life Energy that enhances healing on a physical, mental and spiritual level. Reiki Energy Healing brings relief of pain, enhances relaxation and promotes spiritual growth.
  2. Reiki brings one to understand the purpose of life and connects one to higher levels of consciousness. It is an individual experience and a powerful tool for personal growth and spiritual enlightenment.
  3. Reiki is scientifically supported through controlled clinical medical studies and the testing of those who use it and receive it.
  4. Reiki also increases inner harmony, raises one's vibrations to be in sync and brings peace and happiness on personal, family and global levels.

Anyone can learn the Usui system and the use of white light energy. Reiki is now considered part of complementary medicine throughout the world and is beginning to receive grant money from the United States government through federal CAM (Complementary and Alternative Medicine) grants. Reiki is taught by health systems, at colleges and sanctioned by continuing education class providers.

REI believes Reiki Usui Shiki Ryoho is a powerful natural system that unlocks the inner flow of vital energy, restoring and balancing the energy systems in all living things. No one has ever reported harm from a Reiki experience. It is safe and easy to use anytime, any place, any situation. It can never be used to manipulate or control anything.

What Reiki Is Not:
  1. The Usui System of Reiki Ryoho is not a religion in of itself, nor is it a religious cult. It has no dogma or specific doctrine of beliefs. It does not require faith. Reiki works whether you or the recipient believe in it or not. It is not just for when one is ill or used simply to reduce pain and symptoms.
  2. Reiki is not channeling, a form of mind control or hypnosis. It is not based on or dependent upon imagination, wishful thinking or visualization and is not dependent upon a certain state of mind. It is not necessary to be in a meditative state to effectively do Reiki.
  3. Reiki Shiki Ryoho does not involve E.S.P. or unusual psychic phenomenon. It is not a form of psychic healing or psychic surgery and is not a massage technique.
Reiki Classes: Reiki is not difficult to learn or limited to a select few people. Reiki cannot be taught by just anyone, it is necessary to receive extensive training in order to teach the system. There are many organizations, schools and individuals that teach Reiki. Courses are taught in three levels with the first two levels consisting of at least two sessions each with attunements in each level.
