 About Jikiden Reiki

Jikiden Reiki can be used for minor illnesses such as coughs and colds, headaches and tummy bugs. It appears to accelerate the natural healing process for injuries such as cuts, grazes and bruises and even burns. Reiki Practitioners and parents who have learnt Reiki in order to treat their own children have reported interesting results on various childhood diseases, ear ache, growing pains and temper tantrums. Acute problems such as infections may shift easily and quickly, and even long-term sufferers of chronic diseases may find some relief from their condition.

Preventative healthcare is where Reiki really comes into its own. Jikiden Reiki aims to break down toxins and aid the body in eliminating the toxins that may underlie many health conditions. If we address the accumulations of toxins and unhelpful mental states that eventually result in disease at an early stage, potentially we never need become ill at all.

About Jikiden Reiki

'Jikiden' means 'directly transmitted' from the founder of Reiki, Mikao Usui, and Dr Chujiro Hayashi, his student. Pure Japanese Reiki, nothing added, nothing taken away, and taught with the original intentions behind it.    

Jikiden Reiki is Reiki as it was originally taught in Japan. It is pure, simple, and considered extremely effective with over 65 years of experience behind it.

In the West, we had believed for a long time that Reiki had died out in Japan. The news that Chiyoko Yamaguchi had learnt directly from one of the original teachers, and was willing to share her insights, caused a stir in the Western Reiki world. We can now have access to the original concepts and the specifically Japanese background of Reiki practice.

What happens in a Reiki Treatment

A standard treatment normally lasts around 60 minutes, but may be given for up to 90 minutes per session if necessary. The practitioner places their hands on your fully clothed body. We normally start a treatment by giving Reiki to the head for quite a while, and then work in those areas that need Reiki the most. (Note, we do not follow a set of standard hand positions, as is practised in Western Reiki, but immediately go to the hot spots and stay there for as long as is needed). Jikiden Reiki practitioners are trained to find these areas observing and interpreting the sensations we feel in our hands. “Directing Reiki energy directly to those areas with high accumulations of toxins tends to get fast and effective results.” Gisela Stewart, Jikiden Reiki Teacher.

What will I feel during and after Reiki

“Everyone's experience of Reiki is unique. Most people find Reiki profoundly relaxing. This effect of inner calm often lasts long after the session is over. Occasionally, deeply held emotions may rise up, or physical symptoms may briefly get worse before they improve. This is seen as a sign that the healing process is working. Usually, this process is very gentle and many clients feel positively energised after a Reiki session.”

Once trained in Reiki, this is a resource that you have for the rest of your life to use in whichever way you choose: to keep your batteries charged and enjoy life fully, to return too or maintain your own good health, to help out your family and people close to you, or to become a professional practitioner, giving Reiki treatments to others. In so many ways, Reiki is a wonderful tool for personal growth and a gift to anyone touched by it.

Okuden Level of Jikiden Reiki

At Okuden level, you learn psychological & distance healing. You will also gain a deeper understanding of Reiki, learn 2 more symbols and their essential background, and receive 2 further Reiju.

In Jikiden Reiki, we practise and teach a psychological treatment method, designed to help you let go of deeply ingrained and unhelpful mental patterns. It aims to work on the client's conscious and subconscious self, where change, which may otherwise seem difficult, is possible. The psychological healing method (Sei Heki Chiryo) provides a way to help you through difficult times or issues, e.g. fears, stress, anxiety, phobias, worry, anger, depression, addiction, eating disorders, severe trauma, insomnia, nervousness at speaking in public, smoking … the list is endless. Generally, the more long-term the issue, the longer it takes to resolve. Some positive effects can usually be felt from the outset.
