Origin and History of Reiki

Origin and history of Reiki

The exact history of Reiki is not known but this therapy has been practiced for many centuries and has been a part of several cultures. There are several different theories related to the history of Reiki. Some say it was discovered thousands of years ago in Tibet. However, one true fact is that Reiki was rediscovered in Japan in the beginning of the 20th century.

Reiki practice was rediscovered by Dr. Mikao Usui in Japan in the 20th century. He was the founder of the Usui system of Reiki. He studied various subjects and texts before rediscovering Reiki. Usui's teachings encompassed meditative techniques and healing practices.


At the famous Mt. Kurama in Japan, Dr. Mikao Usui performed meditation for 21 days. He performed The Lotus Repentance meditation, which belongs to Tendai Buddhism. During meditation he attained enlightenment and then he rediscovering Reiki. This endowed him with the power of healing others. Later he opened his own school in Harajuku, Tokyo in April 1922 and spread his spiritual teachings.

Gradually the teaching of Reiki was passed on by the grandmasters of Reiki such as Dr. Chujiro Hyashi, Hawayo Takata, and Phyllis Lei Furumoto. Today several forms of Reiki are practiced, However, the most popular ones are the 'Usui System of Natural Healing' and the 'Radiance Technique'. Reiki teachings were introduced to the Western countries in 1970. Since then it is gaining popularity worldwide.
