For the first time ever, I’m offering a class exclusively on the traditional Japanese Reiki Techniques. Now you might be wondering, “Aren’t all Reiki techniques traditional Japanese Reiki techniques?” The answer is, no, they are not. Many Reiki classes are Western Reiki, or Usui Shiki Ryoho, which are the teachings brought to the West from Mrs. Takata. Mrs. Takata tailored her classes to a Western audience by dropping many of the traditional Japan techniques, making it easier to understand and practice by Western students (which we are grateful form by the way). Mikao Usui’s teachings are what we now call traditional Japanese Reiki. It can’t be known with 100% certainty.
