USUI ENERGY TREATMENT FOR THE IMPROVEMENT OF MIND AND BODY Jikiden Reiki sessions focus on removing toxins from the body and guiding it towards wholeness. Jikiden Reiki is known for its effective treatment of acute and chronic conditions, as well as to address deep rooted beliefs, habits, traumas and addictions. Reiki does not heal, it accelerates the body's own healing process. All forms of Usui Reiki practiced today originated in 1922 in Japan with the founder, Mikao Usui. This simple healing practice migrated to the west in the 1930’s via Mrs. Hawayo Takata, a first generation Japanese-American and Dr. Chijuro Hayashi, one of Usui Sensei's original students. Mrs. Takata, who was recognized by Hayashi Sensei as a Reiki "Master" in 1938, continued to practice and teach in Hawaii, on the U.S. mainland, and in British Columbia until her death in 1980. Within 15 years of Takata Sensei's death, Reiki had spread throughout the rest of the world via the 22 Masters she had trained. (Master is a western term, there are no Masters in Jikiden Reiki. It is most likely a poor translation of the Japanese word "Shihan", which means teacher) With this rapid growth, changes were introduced and some students began to combine Reiki with other healing practices. Terms such as chakras, aura healing, crystal healing, angel guides, etc. used by some practitioners are non-Japanese concepts and were not part of the original teachings. Meanwhile, students of Usui Sensei and Hayashi Sensei continued to practice and teach Reiki in Japan. Western Reiki practitioners who went in search of Reiki’s traditional Japanese roots in the 1990’s met Chiyoko Yamaguchi, an elderly lady who had been practicing Reiki healing techniques since she was first trained by Hayashi Sensei in 1938. On learning how much Western Reiki had changed in its journey around the world, she and her son, Tadao Yamaguchi, decided to pass on what they had learned, coining the name "Jikiden" Reiki. The term “jikiden” is a Japanese word that denotes a traditional art form that is passed on carefully from teacher to student without alteration. Put quite simply, Jikiden Reiki does not have any non-Japanese concepts and is very respectful of the original teachings. Rather than using fixed hand positions, Jikiden Reiki training involves learning to use the hands to sense areas in the body where there are accumulations of toxins. Placement of the hands on these areas is used to break down and eliminate these toxins more effectively. Once toxins are eliminated, the body may more easily move into a place of balance and health. Specific techniques may also be used to release and eliminate “toxic” emotions that may have a negative impact on health.
