HISTORY OF REIKI
Dr. Mikao Usui was born in Japan in 1865. He was a Buddhist priest and spiritualist. In the 1920’s he did a 21 day cleanse on Mount Kurama Yama and it was here during this process he is said to have developed the Reiki system. Dr. Mikao Usui taught Dr. Chujiro Hayashi who in turn taught Mrs. Hawayo Takata and it was she who took it to the Western world in the 1970s.
