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
- 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
- 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.
- Reiki is scientifically supported through controlled clinical
medical studies and the testing of those who use it and receive
- 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.

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

any place, any situation. It can never be used to manipulate or
What Reiki Is Not:
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.
- 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.
- 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
- 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.
