Jikiden Reiki® teachings are from the original, authentic Japanese lineage. This lineage goes from Mikao Usui to Dr. Chujiro Hayashi to Wasaburo Sugano and Mrs. Chiyoko Yamaguchi to her son Tadao Yamaguchi.

Jikiden Reiki® allows you to experience a Japanese form of Usui Reiki in its original beauty and simplicity.

Chiyoko Yamaguchi and her son Tadao Yamaguchi worked together to bring us the most pure sense of Usui’s teachings through Dr. Hayashi. 

In the US, many began practicing Reiki; however, in Japan, Chiyoko sensei had been practicing this technique for some 65 years. 

Reiki in Japan was taught more of Western Reiki since they believed no students directly taught by either Usui sensei or Hayashi sensei existed any longer. 

That was true until a woman was mentioned in a book. It was Chiyoko Yamaguchi that was mentioned. She was only 17 years old when she learned Reiki from Hayashi sensei. 

Her son Tadao Yamaguchi had grown up with Reiki; Reiki was utilized as their first care for ailments. 

It was Tadao who realized that Western Reiki had left out many beautiful parts of the Reiki he grew up with and added things that Usui sensei and Hayashi didn’t teach.

Thanks to Chiyoko sensei and Tadao sensei, this would be the birth of Jikiden Reiki®. The Jikiden Reiki Institute was born and the original teachings would be given.

We are blessed to offer our community Jikiden Reiki® with original beauty and simplicity.
