Usui Reiki Ryoho

Gold Kanji


Stemming from Japanese origins, Usui Reiki Ryoho is a simple and powerful system of placing hands on the body and distant healing that can transform lives. Reiki works on the body, mind and spirit. It releases blocked energy, promotes relaxation and reduces stress.  Reiki has an innate intelligence and goes wherever needed in the body, helping to cleanse the body of toxins. Reiki also works on plants, animals, and even machines.  Over time it can enhance intuition, meditation and personal spiritual evolution.

  • Usui Sensei said, “Reiki Ryoho is a spiritual healing technique and an energy healing technique”. Spiritual healing connects one with Universal Consciousness bringing Spiritual growth by healing core patterns and issues and helping one remember the fullness of ‘who they are’. Energy healing brings relief of pain and symptoms in the mind, body and emotions.
  • Reiki Ryoho brings one to understand the ‘purpose of life’; establishes the ‘Self’ which is aware of the ‘True meaning of Life’ as part of Universal Consciousness; connects one to Higher levels of consciousness. Reiki Ryoho is spiritually guided, is an individual experience and a powerful tool for personal growth and spiritual enlightenment.
  • Reiki Ryoho expands ‘Love’, helping one to understand the True meaning of ‘Unconditional Love’. Reiki Ryoho increases and spreads the vibration of ‘Love’ to all life.
  • Reiki Ryoho expands ‘Harmony’, raises one’s vibrations to be in sync (or resonance) with the Divine and in so doing brings ‘Peace’ and happiness on personal, family and global levels. It is for you and everyone alive who is desirous of a higher quality of life. Reiki is pure ‘Divine Light’.
  • Reiki Ryoho restores wholeness to body, mind and spirit, increases intuition, and helps one reconnect to their ‘God-given’ gifts of clairvoyance, clairaudience, and clairsentience. It is a transcendental, counter clockwise spiralling energy, which works with physical, mental, emotional and spiritual levels simultaneously. It is an evolutionary process, which will increase the natural flow of events and patterns of manifestation in all life. This precise self-help technique encourages personal growth and transformation on all levels.
  • Reiki Ryoho is a powerful natural system that unlocks the inner flow of vital energy, restoring and balancing the energy systems in all living things. This natural healing system is complete and whole in and of itself, yet acts synergistically with all other healing methods. It is for preventing disorders, maintaining positive wellness, helping the healing process and is beneficial in emergency situations or when used with medical and other procedures.
  • Reiki is always available and is unlimited; once attuned to the energy, you never lose it and cannot over use it. It is safe and easy to use anytime, any place, any situation and it can never be used to manipulate or control anything.



  • Reiki Ryoho is not a religion or religious cult. It has no dogma or specific doctrine of beliefs. It does not require faith, so is not akin to “laying-on-of-hands”. Reiki works whether you or the recipient believe in it or not.
  • Reiki Ryoho is not channeling (the practitioner is like a funnel), a form of mind control or hypnosis; is not based on 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 Ryoho.
  • Reiki Ryoho does not involve E.S.P. or unusual psychic phenomenon; is not a form of psychic healing or psychic surgery and is not a massage technique.
  • Reiki Ryoho is not difficult to use or limited to a select few people. It is not just for when one is ill or used simply to reduce pain and symptoms. Reiho wholes the body, bringing it into sync with the Divine rhythm of the Universe. Everyone can learn, use and benefit from daily use of Reiho.
  • Reiki Ryoho 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 but few teach Usui Reiki Ryoho.



Reiki is a valuable tool for anyone whether they have health, emotional, mental, spiritual issues or want to empower their personal evolution. Many people also like to receive regular hands on Reiki sessions as a refreshing and relaxing treat for themselves, in the same way that they might receive a massage or a facial, a guided meditation session or a spa bath.

Reiki is available to anyone regardless of age or circumstance.

Reiki does not require years of study.

Reiki is a door to a higher part of your own spiritual being. ‘Having Reiki’ increases the flow of higher vibrational energy through your crown chakra and into the physical body.

Reiki energy works to harmonize, or bring into balance the total that is you: physical, emotional, mental and spiritual.

You can learn to give Reiki treatments to yourself, family and friends, animals, plants etc; some people use Reiki on appliances. The Reiki energy heals and energizes you even while you are treating others.

The use of Reiki as a relaxation and stress reduction technique is becoming accepted and widespread, and it enhances other bodywork and healing modalities.

There is a school of thought that suggests emotional problems and disease stem from disturbances in the personal energy field; Reiki is one way to help restore harmony to the energy field.



The ability to transmit Reiki healing energy is awakened in others by a process called an Empowerment. In traditional Japanese Reiki this is known as a Reiju. Anyone can receive Reiju and give Reiki; it requires no special abilities and is a reliable way of conducting healing treatments on yourself and others. During a ‘hands on’ session the practitioner places their hands on body points which correspond to traditional Chakra and Meridian system centres in Eastern culture.

A Reiki teacher empowered to give them however, must perform the Reiju, and the Empowerment’s are usually given in conjunction with a workshop. There are three levels or degrees in Usui Reiki Ryoho.  Learn Usui Reiki Ryoho

Reiki helps with personal spiritual development, helping one to connect with spiritual energy and information and also to more easily release emotional blocks and trauma. The energy is intelligent and will go to where it is most needed without intellectual direction or conscious effort on the part of the practitioner.
While many people go to practitioners to receive Reiki sessions, I do encourage sincerely interested people to receive empowerment’s for Reiki Ryoho themselves. I have found it to be a valuable tool for spiritual empowerment and healing of self and others. Reiki works only in accord with the universal good and therefore it can do no harm to learn and ‘have’ Reiki.
