reiki as alternative healing
Explanation Of Instruction For The Public
By Founder of Usui Reiki Ryoho, Mikao Usui
It is an old custom to teach a method to only my
descendants, for keeping a wealth within a family.
Especially, the modern societies we live in wish to
share happiness of coexistence and co-prosperity. So I
don't allow my family to keep the method to ourselves.
My Usui Reiki Ryoho is an original, there is nothing
like this in the world. So I would like to release
this method to the public for everyone's benefit and
hope for everyone's happiness. My Reiki Ryoho is an
original method based on intuitive power in the
universe. By this power, the body gets healthy and
enhances happiness of life and peaceful mind.owadays
people need improvement and reconstruction inside and
outside of life, so the reason for releasing my method
to the public is to help people with illness of body
Q. What is Usui Reiki Ryoho?
A. Graciously I have received Meiji Emperor's last
injunctions. For achieving my teachings, training and
improving physically and spiritually and walking in a
right path as a human being, first we have to heal our
spirit. Secondly we have to keep our body healthy. If
our spirit is healthy and conformed to the truth, body
will get healthy naturally. Usui Reiki Ryoho's
missions are to lead peaceful and happy life, heal
others and improve happiness of others and ourselves.
Q. Is there any similarity to hypnotism, Kiai method,
religious method or any other methods?
A. No, there is no similarity to any of those
methods. This method is to help body and spirit with
intuitive power, which I've received after long and
Q. Then, is it psychic method of treatment?
A. Yes, you could say that. But you could also say it
is physical method of treatment. The reason why is Ki
and light are emanated from healer's body, especially
from eyes, mouth and hands. So if healer stares or
breathes on or strokes with hands at the affected area
such as toothache, colic pain, stomachache, neuralgia,
bruises, cuts, burns and other swellings with pain
will be gone. However a chronic disease is not easy,
it's needed some time. But a patient will feel
improvement at the first treatment. There is a fact
more than a novel how to explain this phenomenon with
modern medicine. If you see the fact you would
understand. Even people who use sophistry can not
ignore the fact.
Q. Do I have to believe in Usui Reiki Ryoho to get
A. No. It's not like a psychological method of
treatment or hypnosis or other kind of mental method.
There is no need to have a consent or admiration. It
doesn't matter if you doubt, reject or deny it. For
example, it is effective to children and very ill
people who are not aware of any consciousness, such as
a doubt, rejection or denying. There may be one out of
ten who believes in my method before a treatment. Most
of them learn the benefit after first treatment then
they believe in the method.
Q. Can any illness be cured by Usui Reiki Ryoho?
A. Any illness such as psychological or an organic
disease can be cured by this method.
Q. Does Usui Reiki Ryoho only heal illness?
A. No. Usui Reiki Ryoho does not only heal illness.
Mental illness such as agony, weakness, timidity,
irresolution, nervousness and other bad habit can be
corrected. Then you are able to lead happy life and
heal others with mind of God or Buddha. That becomes
Q. How does Usui Reiki Ryoho work?
A. I've never been given this method by anybody nor
studied to get psychic power to heal. I accidentally
realized that I have received healing power when I
felt the air in mysterious way during fasting. So I
have a hard time explaining exactly even I am the
founder. Scholars and men of intelligence have been
studying this phenomenon but modern science can't
solve it. But I believe that day will come naturally.
Q. Does Usui Reiki Ryoho use any medicine and are
there any side effects?
A. Never uses medical equipment. Staring at affected
area, breathing onto it, stroking with hands, laying
on of hands and patting lightly with hands are the way
Q. Do I need to have knowledge of medicine?
A. My method is beyond a modern science so you do not
need knowledge of medicine. If brain disease occurs, I
treat a head. If it's a stomachache, I treat a
stomach. If it's an eye disease, I treat eyes. You
don't have to take bitter medicine or stand for hot
moxa treatment. It takes short time for a treatment
with staring at affected area or breathing onto it or
laying on of hands or stroking with hands. These are
the reason why my method is very original.
Q. What do famous medical scientists think of this
A. The famous medical scientists seem very
reasonable. European medical scientists have severe
criticism towards medicine. To return to the subject,
Dr. Nagai of Teikoku Medical University says, "we as
doctors do diagnose, record and comprehend illnesses
but we don't know how to treat them." Dr. Kondo says,
"it is not true that medical science made a great
progress. It is the biggest fault in the modern
medical science that we don't take notice of
psychological affect. Dr. Kuga says, "it is a fact
that psychological therapy and other kind of healing
treatment done by healers without doctor's training
works better than doctors, depending on type of
illnesses or patient's personality or application of
treatment. Also the doctors who try to repel and
exclude psychological healers without doctor's
training are narrow-minded." ------------From Nihon
Iji Shinpo It is obvious fact that doctors, medical
scientists and pharmacists recognize the effect of my
method and become a pupil.
Q. What is the government's reaction?
A. On February 6th, 1922, at the Standing Committee
on Budget of House of Representatives, a member of the
Diet Dr. Matsushita asked for government's view about
the fact that people who do not have doctor's training
have been treating many patients with psychological or
spiritual method of treatment. Mr. Ushio, a government
delegate says, "a little over 10 years ago people
thought hypnosis is a work of long-nosed goblin but
nowadays study has been done and it's applied to
mentally ill patients. It is very difficult to solve
human intellect with just science. Doctors follow the
instruction how to treat patients by medical science,
but it's not a medical treatment such as electric
therapy or just touching with hands to all illnesses."
So my Usui Reiki Ryoho does not violate the Medical
Practitioners Law or Shin-Kyu (acupuncture and moxa
treatment) Management Regulation.
Q. People would think that this kind of healing power
is gifted to the selected people, not by training.
A. No, that isn't true. Every existence has healing
power. Plants, trees, animals, fish and insects, but
especially a human as the lord of creation has
remarkable power. Usui Reiki Ryoho is materialized the
healing power that human has.
Q. Then, can anybody receive Denju of Usui Reiki
A. Of course, a man, woman, young or old, people with
knowledge or without knowledge, anybody who has a
common sense can receive the power accurately in a
short time and can heal selves and others. I have
taught to more than one thousand people but no one is
failed. Everyone is able to heal illness with just
Shoden. You may think it is inscrutable to get the
healing power in a short time but it is reasonable.
It's the feature of my method that heals difficult
Q. If I can heal others, can I heal myself?
A. If you can't heal yourself, how can you heal
Q. How can I receive Okuden?
A. Okuden includes Hatsureiho, patting with hands
method, stroking with hands method, pressing with
hands method, telesthetic method and propensity
method. I will teach it to people who have learned
Shoden and who are good students, good conduct and
Q. Is there higher level more than Okuden?
A. Yes, there is a level called Shinpiden.

Re: reiki as alternative healing
I knew Reiki sometimes in early 2000. It was like big things in Bali. Every wellness spa also offer this method. I have no idea about it. friend of mine, she is Germany asked me to do it and I did it once. It didn't occured me. I feel no different (or maybe I was just being skeptical?)
But overall, I always encouraging an alternative medication. Good as an alternative so people can choose what right and what they believe.
For me every medication method is good, as long as you believe in it! (but I am not suggesting you to kill the people and take their salivas to make you imune...like in deli Serdang, West Sumatra..lol)
Long Life alternatrive (traditional) medication and long life modern medical!
