"A Treatment to Heal
Diseases, Hand Healing" Shouoh Matsui
(translated into English by Miyuki Iwasaki)
Article from a magazine,
"Sunday Mainichi", Mar. 4, 1928
Reader's Request: I
would like to know about the healing method which was introduced in the
book presentation in the Mainichi paper (Jan. 30) by Shouoh Matsui. (Korea,
I would like to talk
about the healing with pleasure, since this is a reader's request.
The healing method is named "Reiki Ryoho" and some special people practice
it. Mikao Usui found, or should I say created?, this Reiki Ryoho, and he
passed away about 2 years ago. Currently, Usui's students have a clinic
to give healing treatments or teach this Reiki Ryoho. This healing method
is so effective that it can heal any disease, however, this is not well-known
to people. The reason is that Mikao Usui did not like to advertise it and
his students avoided making it public until now.
But I cannot understand
why they do not want to make it public. Christianity has priests to engage
in mission work, and Buddhism does also. The word "propaganda" was originally
used to spread the truth. If the "truth" makes people happy, it should
be a duty of human beings to make the "truth" known. Therefore, I always
inform kindly about this Reiki Ryoho when I am asked by others, I write
for the paper/magazine if asked. And as such my actions cause opposition.
Other Reiki practitioners will recognize me as a heretic. I really think
that it is a regrettable matter to avoid informing about such a great healing
technique. It is really regrettable for society and in morality, and I
always try to announce it with pleasure.
Especially this time,
I was asked by a reader of a big newspaper (Mainichi), so how can I say
"No, our Ryoho does not like to advertise"? That will make readers/journalists
feel "Reiki could be a trickery, they cannot speak out in public though
they say they can heal any disease". Therefore, I advertise Reiki for Reiki
itself by telling you the truth. That is why I write for the paper this
time and please remember that my actions have nothing to do with other
Reiki practitioners. This article is written by me of my own thoughts.
I cannot keep silent. To tell you the truth, I feel that I cannot write
a scenario of a play at all after knowing Reiki Ryoho. If I advertise Reiki
and spread it to realize my ideal, Japan will become a paradise. Not only
Japan, but the all countries in the world will become paradise without
diseases. Oh, I really want to make it public.
"Reiki Ryoho" was
found over a decade ago, and the number of Reiki clinics is still small.
I leaned Reiki from Chujiro Hayashi, who was a Navy Captain, and was a
serious, warmhearted person as if he was destined from birth for Reiki
work. He gives Reiki treatments to people in the morning, and he teaches
Reiki 5 days a month. However, there exists a lot of treatments which have
"Rei" in their names. People recognize our Reiki as other "Rei" named treatments
all together. And our Reiki practitioners do not want to advertise it still,
it cannot be helped that Reiki is not popular at all.
I have experienced/researched
some treatments but Reiki is the best as far as I know. Reiki is the most
unique and the most effective, it can really heal any disease. Some have
asked "Is Reiki effective on neural diseases?" This healing is not limited
only to neural, but to all diseases such as diseases of the internal
organs, hurts, burn, and so on, as you desire.
Reiki Ryoho is considered
a spiritual technique, as the name "Rei" shows, but as for me, I think
it is a physical technique, based on my experience of healing more than
a hundred people. Some think that Reiki equals the miracle healings which
Christ did, but I am not a great person like Christ, and I do not have
great character, either.
Some people watch
spiritual aspect of human being and interpret every social phenomena into
spiritual matters, but other people consider every social phenomena practically
and physically. I am the person belonging to the latter group. I am normal
and common person so that I do not have to have spiritual ambitions to
heal people physically. At least, my healing technique is NOT supernatural
matter at all currently. I consider Reiki as a normal and physiological
Let me talk about
some examples instead of its theory.
Recently, a high
school teacher in Urawa city took his 4-year-old daughter to my clinic.
A person told him about my healing and introduced him to me. The girl was
blind in one eye and the other eye was becoming blind, too. The father
took her to various doctors, but his daughter's eye was not recovering.
Then the father brought her to my clinic. I thought that her trouble was
not only in the eyes but other parts as well, and I scanned the whole body.
I felt her stomach, nose, and kidneys had trouble, and it appeared in her
eyes strongly. I tried my Ryoho 5, 6 times and she was able to see. The
father who said he would offer his eyes to his daughter, now started to
learn Reiki to heal his daughter.
The next example
was last year, in early December. A doctor told that the famous painter,
Mr. O, was going to die in 3 hours. 2 hours had passed when I got the telephone
call from his daughter, at midnight, but 1 hour remained. My wife and I
rushed to the suburb of Komazawa, it took 1 hour to get there, and we arrived
3 and a half hours since the doctor’s pronouncement. The family was waiting
for us in front of the house and said that he had became unconscious 1
hour before we arrived. We tried to heal his heart, put our hands on the
heart, and sent Reiki energy there for 6 hours without drinking a drop
of tea. Mr. O was affected by valvular disease of the heart, but after
our efforts of 6 hours healing, the doctor announced that "Mr. O had recovered
to a safe level". The next evening, his fever returned to a normal state
and his pulse became 80 per minute. I can say that a pulse of 120 / minute
will be decreased to 80 / minute by a few hours of Reiki healing. It is
not so difficult.
when Mr. Ino, who was called "god in Onda (name of town)", was going to
die, 4 famous doctors came for him. They pronounced his death 4 times,
and the last morning, his family took water to moisten the dying man's
lips (this is a Japanese custom to attend the deathbed of a family member),
but we promised his family that he would recover. Mr. Ino recovered at
last, and the doctors left his house.
I have experienced
such miracle cases many times. However, those are not miracles at all,
we just gave patients healing treatments physiologically.
Now I am explaining
how I heal diseases. I just put my hands on the affected part. I do not
push, I do not pat, either. I think this is the interesting point of this
healing technique. I scan the whole body of the patient, feel the source
of disease, give healing to that part, and the healing effect is big and
quick. Well then, how I can find the source of disease is that I feel pain
when I put my hands at the source point. The strength of pain differs depending
on diseases, but I am not sure of the relation between the strength of
the pain and the state of the disease. And my hands feel pain not only
at the part that patients tell me, but also at the area of the source of
disease, and I can find the healing point easily. In most cases, doctors
know the affected part because patients tell them where and how they feel
affected, but I do not need any information from patients. Patients can
be suspicious about my healing. Anyway, the big change will occur at the
affected part in 30 minutes - 2 hours.
