Usui Reiki Ryoho Gakkai Techniques

[an error occurred while processing this directive]
Last Updated: March 31, 2014
There is another booklet used by the Usui Reiki Ryoho Gakkai (the original Reiki society) called "Reiki Ryoho no Shiori." It contains many healing techniques, but it is now only given out to the high ranking society members. According to Hiroshi Doi (a former Gakkai member)  it is no longer part of the Gakkai teachings.  Thus it was allowed to be presented to the West in 1999 by Doi-sensei in a series of workshops that came to be called Usui Reiki Ryoho International.  Below are the techniques listed in the level of training they were originally taught (thanks to Doi-sensei for this information). The list is also compared to techniques that  Mrs. Takata had been known to share with some students. (Thanks to Adonea for sharing this).

Some of the techniques are linked to pages with a complete description.  You can view others at my Sample Shoden and Sample Okuden pages.  I also list additional Gendai Reiki Ho techniques that Doi-sensei added into his workshop and classes.
