Eastern Gendai Reiki Ho  

The Purest & Original Japanese Teachings & Techniques

Reiki (pronounced ray-key) is a spiritual healing art performed by “laying on hands” and was originally developed by Tibetan monks 2,500 years ago but, re-discovered in Japan by Mikao Usui in March of 1922. Reiki is now considered a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. 

A Reiki session can help ease tension and stress and can help support the body to facilitate an environment for healing on all levels – physical, mental, and emotional. A session is pleasant and relaxing and is often utilized for one’s personal wellness. Reiki is not affiliated with any particular religion or religious practice. It is not massage nor is it based on belief or suggestion. It is a subtle and effective form of energy work using spiritually guided life force energy. As a Reiki Practitioner, I believe everyone has the ability to connect with their own healing energy and use it to strengthen energy in themselves and help others to do the same. It is believed that when a person’s “ki” or energy is strong and free flowing their body and mind is in a positive state of health. However, when a person’s energy or chakras become weak or blocked, it could lead to symptoms of physical or emotional imbalance.

Today, Reiki takes many forms, however…

Eastern Gendai Reiki Ho is the purest form of Reiki utilizing the original teachings and techniques Usui Sensi without modifications. Reiki students are trained in these techniques and then go through an initiation process where Shihans attune or transmit energy to their students in a sacred ceremony at four distinct levels.

My Reiki Lineage was passed down directly through the Gakkai which is the Society founded by Usui Sensi himself.  The importance of lineage in Reiki cannot be stressed enough because when a Reiki Practitioner receives their attunements, there is a direct exchange of energy that is intrinsically linked to the Reiki Master that came before them. The closer to the source, Usui Sensi, the purer the Reiki energy.
