Today the practice of Reiki is being used at home, in hospitals and in hospices
as a complementary therapy that is accessible to all. It is a system first of all
of self- development, designed to increase harmony and balance in one’s body, mind
spirit and life. Its strength is that it is easy to learn, anyone of any age
and background can practice it. The more you use it, the more it grows within you.
Someone who is practising Reiki should be able to trace his or her lineage of teachers
back to Dr Usui either via Mrs.Takata or Dr Hayashi or other students of Dr Usui
via Usui-do or the Japanese Reiki Gakkai. By the end of his life Dr Usui had taught
many students and there are many potential lineages.
