You have most likely come to this page because you are not familiar with Reiki.  Or you may simply be curious as to my thoughts on this aspect of Reiki Ryoho. 

The personal development system sometimes called Usui Reiki Ryoho, also known as Reiki-ho or Rei-ho, is better thought of in the West for the offshoot healing system called "Reiki."  It was originally just thought of as palm healing or teate. (tey-ah-tey).

I have found that Reiki is a Threshold to a higher part of your own existence. With this connection you can allow the flow of very high vibrations of energy through your auric field and into your physical body. This energy works to harmonize, or bring into balance, the total you: physical, emotional, mental and spiritual.

You can easily learn to give Reiki treatments to yourself, family and friends. It will help create and maintain close bonds, as well as enrich your sense of giving and receiving. The Reiki energy treats and energizes you even while you are treating others. You can start your own Reiki practice. The use of Reiki as a relaxation and stress reducing technique is becoming accepted and widespread; and it can enhance other bodywork techniques.

As for Usui Reiki Ryoho, it is actually a 1920s variation of the modern concepts of Mindfulness, and has nothing to do with hands on (or of) healing methods.  But it too offers a very simply philosphy for day to day wellness.  It can be found under the topics of Usui-Do and Usui Teate in the Experienced Reiki section of this web site.

Check Out Threshold Notes

Originally my blog page, I have 37 brief articles where I give my ideas on aspects of Reiki and/or energy work. The pages are intended to give some "food for thought" and some are only my viewpoint. While a number of facts may be included, you should decide for yourself how much (if any) of the content feels right to you.
Check Out Threshold Experiences

36 short stories or anecdotes (so far) where I share personal experiences related to my Reiki and energy work.
Make sure you visit the Miscellaneous Topics to find some additional topics that might interest you. Includes information on ME (who I am, and my Reiki training background), as well as some additional notes of interest like the Light Technique
Just because you may be new to all this, doesn't mean that you won't find some of the other topics at the Reiki Threshold interesting.  Have a look at some of these if they grab your attention.  I recommend you explore the Usui Memorial, the Usui Gainen or Precepts, the Saihoji Temple, Reiki in Japan, Sensei Hiroshi Doi's book, among others.
