Introduction by Mike Mannix Reiki Master Practitioner 


Usui Reiki Ryoho, its roots deeply embedded in the tradional Japanese Universal energies, offers more than just a therapeutic touch; it's a gateway to enhanced strength, health, harmony and self empowerment. By intertwining the spiritual with the physical, this unique method fosters an environment where positive thoughts flourish, leading to an overall state of well-being and joy. In a world too often shadowed by illness and discord, Usui Reiki Ryoho stands as a beacon of hope and healing, promising a journey not only towards physical recuperation but towards a richer, more fulfilling life. Through the simple act of sharing this innate gift, we open the doors to a future where healing and growth are accessible to everyone, setting the foundation for a society characterized by mutual support and collective well-being.



Reiki In The Words Of The Founder Usui Mikao

From ancient times, whenever someone developed a secret method, they would keep it exclusively within their family, passing it down as a legacy for future generations. However, this practice of withholding knowledge from the public is a custom of the past century and not in line with the interconnectedness of modern society. Social progress and happiness are rooted in the idea of sharing knowledge and ideas for the benefit of all. That's why I am committed to not keeping this idea to myself. Our Reiki Ryoho is a groundbreaking concept, unlike anything developed before, and I believe it should be made accessible to everyone for the betterment of society. By sharing it openly, everyone can experience the blessings and achieve unity of soul and purpose.

Our Reiki Ryoho is a unique therapeutic method that taps into the universal power of Reiki present in the universe. Its primary goal is to empower individuals to attain strength and good health. By nurturing a healthy spirit and body, one can cultivate positive thoughts, maintain mental and physical well-being, and lead a pleasant life. In the face of illness and suffering prevalent both inside and outside of our lives, Reiki Ryoho offers a path towards improvement and healing.

Q: What is Usui Reiki Ryoho?

A: Usui Reiki Ryoho is graciously derived from the last injunctions of Emperor Meiji. Its purpose is to guide individuals on a journey of self-improvement, physical and spiritual training, and living righteously as human beings. The essence of this practice lies in healing our spirits first, and then maintaining a healthy body. When our spirit aligns with the truth, our physical well-being naturally follows. The mission of Usui Reiki Ryoho is to lead a peaceful and happy life, heal others, and enhance the happiness of both ourselves and those around us.

Q: Is there any similarity to hypnotism, the Kiai method, religious method, or other methods?

A: No, there is no similarity between Usui Reiki Ryoho and any of those methods. This method employs intuitive power, which I acquired through extensive and rigorous training.

Q: Then, is it a psychic method of treatment?

A: Yes, one could describe it as a psychic method of treatment, but it also encompasses physical aspects. During treatment, the healer emits Ki and light from their body, particularly through the eyes, mouth, and hands. By focusing on and interacting with the affected area, such as toothaches, stomach aches, neuralgia, bruises, cuts, burns, and swellings, the pain can be relieved. However, for chronic diseases, healing might require more time. While the phenomenon undeniably works, modern medicine struggles to explain how it operates.

Q: Do I have to believe in Usui Reiki Ryoho to experience positive results?

A: No, belief in Usui Reiki Ryoho is not a prerequisite for achieving positive results. Unlike psychological or mental methods, consent, admiration, doubt, rejection, or denial are not significant factors here. Even children and seriously ill individuals, devoid of any conscious thoughts of doubt, can experience its effectiveness. Many who were initially skeptical have come to believe in the method after witnessing its benefits through the first treatment.

Q: Can any illness be cured by Usui Reiki Ryoho?

A: Yes, Usui Reiki Ryoho can treat various illnesses, including psychological and organic diseases.

Q: Does Usui Reiki Ryoho solely focus on healing illnesses?

A: No, Usui Reiki Ryoho's scope goes beyond just healing illnesses. It can also correct mental ailments such as agony, weakness, timidity, irresolution, nervousness, and other negative habits. By cultivating the mind of God or Buddha, one can lead a fulfilling life and offer healing to others.

Q: How does Usui Reiki Ryoho work?

A: I did not receive this method from anyone, nor did I study to obtain psychic healing powers. It was during a period of fasting when I experienced a mysterious sensation in the air that I realized I had received a healing power. Explaining exactly how Usui Reiki Ryoho works remains challenging, even as the founder. Scholars and intellectuals have studied this phenomenon, but modern science is yet to provide a definitive explanation. Nonetheless, I believe that understanding will naturally emerge in due course.

Q: Does Usui Reiki Ryoho involve the use of medicine, and are there any side effects?

A: Usui Reiki Ryoho does not employ any medical equipment. Treatment methods include staring at the affected area, breathing onto it, stroking with the hands, laying on of hands, and patting lightly with the hands.

Q: Do I need to have knowledge of medicine to practice Usui Reiki Ryoho?

A: No, my method transcends modern science and does not require any medical knowledge. In treating ailments, I focus on specific areas based on the type of disease, such as treating the head for brain diseases, the stomach for stomachaches, and the eyes for eye conditions. There is no need for bitter medicines or hot moxa treatments. The treatment process, involving staring, breathing, laying on of hands, or stroking, is swift, making my method truly original.

Q: What do famous medical scientists think of this method?

A: Renowned medical scientists view this method quite favorably. European medical scientists, in particular, criticize conventional medicine. Dr. Nagai of Teikoku Medical University acknowledges that while doctors diagnose and document illnesses, they struggle with knowing how to treat them. Dr. Kondo believes that modern medical science's biggest flaw is neglecting psychological effects. Dr. Kuga recognizes that psychological therapy and other healing treatments performed by non-medical healers can be more effective than those by doctors, depending on the illness and the patient's personality. Although some doctors attempt to repel and exclude non-medical healers, they are merely narrow-minded. Various doctors, medical scientists, and pharmacists have acknowledged the efficacy of my method and even become students.

Q: What is the government's reaction to Usui Reiki Ryoho?

A: When asked about the treatment of patients with psychological or spiritual methods by those without medical training, the government's delegate acknowledged that science alone cannot address all aspects of human intellect. My Usui Reiki Ryoho does not violate the Medical Practitioners Law or Shin-Kyu Management Regulation.

Q: Some may think that healing powers like this are innate gifts, not obtained through training.

A: That is not accurate. Every living being possesses inherent healing power, be it plants, trees, animals, fish, insects, and especially humans, the rulers of creation. Usui Reiki Ryoho brings to light and materializes the healing power that humans naturally possess.

Q: Can anyone receive the Reiju of Usui Reiki Ryoho?

A: Absolutely. Usui Reiki Ryoho is accessible to anyone, regardless of gender, age, knowledge, or common sense. Within a short time, individuals can accurately receive the power and heal themselves and others. Having taught over 1,000 people, I have not encountered anyone who failed to harness the healing power. Remarkably, difficult illnesses can be treated easily through my method.

Q: If I can heal others, can I also heal myself?

A: Certainly. To heal others effectively, it is essential first to be able to heal oneself.

Q: How can I receive Okuden?

A: Okuden encompasses various methods, such as Hatsureiho, patting with hands, stroking with hands,
