Dr. Mikao UsuiDr. Mikao Usui

Dr. Mikao Usui is the founder of the Usui Reiki System of Natural Healing. Born in 1865 in Japan, Dr. Usui was avidly interested in learning, and studied medicine, psychology, and religion throughout Europe and China. In midlife, Dr. Usui was initiated to Reiki while attending a 21-day Isyu Guo Tendai Buddhist meditation retreat atop Mount Kurama in Japan. It is said, that Reiki spontaneously entered Dr. Usui's crown chakra greatly enhancing his healing abilities. Thereafter, Dr. Usui created a healing center in Tokyo and began giving Reiki treatments.

Dr. Chujiro HayashiDr. Chujiro HayashAround 1925, Dr. Usui initiated Dr. Chujiro Hayashi, a retired naval officer, to Reiki Levels I and II and thereafter gave him the Reiki Master attunement. Dr. Hayashi and Dr. Usui worked together for many years. Dr. Hyashi is credited with having kept detailed records of the Reiki treatment sessions and using them to formally record the three Reiki degrees (Levels I, II, and Master) and the initiation procedures for each.

Hawayo TakataHawayo TakataHawayo Takata introduced the Usui Reiki System of Natural Healing to America. Ms. Takata was born in 1900 on the island of Kauai, Hawaii. In her mid-life, Ms. Takata became ill. While visiting Japan, she sought Reiki treatment for her illness at Dr. Hayashi's Reiki clinic although she was not familiar with Reiki's healing power. It is said, that during her Reiki sessions Ms. Takata felt strong heat and thought the practitioners were using machines. Yet, upon looking, she saw the practitioners using only their hands. After several months of treatment, Ms. Takata's was healed. Ms. Takata then knew that Reiki was an authentic healing method and wanted to channel this energy.

In the mid 1930's, Ms. Takata received First and Second Degree Reiki from Dr. Hayashi while working at his clinic. Thereafter, she returned to Hawaii with Dr. Hayashi and together they established Reiki in Hawaii. During this period, Dr. Hayashi initiated Ms. Takata as a Reiki Master.

Between 1970 and her death in 1980, Mrs. Takata initiated 22 Reiki Masters in the United States.

After Ms. Takata's death, conflict and upheaval arose between the 22 Reiki Masters. Various practitioners split off from the original Usui Reiki System of Natural Healing and created their own methods.

The Reiki Andrea works with and teaches is the Usui Reiki System of Natural Healing. The Reiki symbols Andrea is blessed to use were given to her through the lineage of Dr. Usui.

Usui Reiki can be taught to anyone and everyone. It is available to all. But, learning how to channel Reiki is not done by reading a book, by taking quickie courses, or watching YouTube videos.

The ability to channel Reiki is only given to a student by a Reiki Master during attunement processes. In the attunements, the Reiki adjusts the student's chakras and energy pathways. These adjustments connect the student to the Reiki and to channeling this energy from Its source.

As a student progresses through the Reiki levels, they are attuned into a deeper and more intimate relationship with this amazing and transformative energy.
