Jikiden Reiki is an energetic, hands-on healing system that supports the heart-mind & physical body. Energy is delivered through the hands and directed to specific body parts, meridians & organs in need of detoxification, stimulation and healing. As the result, a client may feel a warming sensation, tingling, pulsing or nothing at all. During a treatment, it is common to experience a greater connection to one's physical body, deep relaxation, stress reduction and overall well being.
Usui Sensei developed Jikiden Reiki after a near death experience which resulted in his enlightenment. Although many styles of Reiki now exist, mostly to suit Western tastes, Jikiden Reiki is authentic Reiki as delivered and taught by Usui Sensei, then passed down to Hayashi Sensei & Chiyoko Sensei.
I had the utmost privilege to learn the history of Jikiden Reiki as well as Shoden & Okuden practices from Arjava Sensei in 2019. He is the Vice Representative of the Jikiden Reiki Institute in Kyoto, Japan and the author of 9 books on Reiki history & practices. For additional information about Arjava Sensei as well as his teaching schedule, please visit his website. Previously, I learned Usui Reiki levels 1 & 2 in 2015, and Master level training in 2016, gifted to me by Erin Somerset, Jikiden Reiki Shihan.
