What is Reiki Ryoho?



There is a difference between the term REIKI and REIKI RYOHO.

Reiki 靈氣 = Energy of the Universe (Heaven and Earth)


Ryo 療 = Healing / Therapeutic


Ho 法 = Art / Method


Reiki Ryoho 靈氣療法 is the art of hands-on healing by means of channeling the energy of the Universe, and it is a twofold practice, a healing practice and a spiritual practice.

Mikao Usui Sensei, the founder of Reiki Ryoho (healing art or method), attained enlightenment and a healing ability as a godsend was bestowed upon him in 1922 at the age of 57 while he was fasting and meditating on Mt. Kurama in Kyoto, the ancient capital city of Japan. The healing art is named “USUI REIKI RYOHO to improve the mind and body”, and is an inspired not the outcome of his researches, or discovery, or rediscovery.

Usui Sensei created the hand-on healing art after his enlightenment on the mountain Kurama in March 1922. This method is meant to improve first the mind and then the body (not the body, then the mind); and to guide the practitioner on the personal never ending spiritual path to cultivate and uplift spirituality and the whole being so as to attain the ultimate objective of Reiki Ryoho, i.e., “the absolute INNER PEACE” or “Satori”(enlightenment). This is accomplished by ‘re-membering’ our innate connection to the inexhaustible and unlimited energy of the Universe.

Reiki Ryoho is relatively easy to learn and very simple to practice / use. Anyone can be initiated into Reiki Ryoho and become Reiki practitioner to heal themselves and others. This is done by means of ritual called «Reiju» or «attunement». We begin by rediscovering our natural healing ability. We start by healing ourselves first. We can then share this healing ability with others, developing in us a sense of love and compassion.
There is an ordinary and common misconception that Reiki is something you ‘receive’ during a Reiju (attunement/initiation). It implies that before Reiju, you did not have Reiki, but after Reiju, you have been suddenly given something you did not previously possess. It also implies that Reiki energy is separate from you and that a Reiki practitioner will ‘channel’ Reiki in order to ‘transfer or give the energy’ to a recipient. Since Reiki means the energy of the Universe, you cannot be separated from it, and it cannot be separated from you. You are it, and it is you. This means that you already ‘have Reiki’, it is an inner gift which everyone has been having since their birth. Having a Reiju (initiation/ attunement) simply wakes you up to this fact of your natural ability to heal, from subconscious level to a conscious level. It has always been within you. In a way, it ‘turns on the switch’.
Note: In traditional Japanese way of teaching, Reiju (initiation/ attunement) is transmitted ONLY in-person, not distantly, or by the Internet…

Many people who use the term of Reiki are usually referring to the practice of «Reiki Ryoho» or hands-on healing practice of Reiki.
«Reiki» refers to the inexhaustible energy of the Universe, which can not be defined or confined, while «Reiki Ryoho» is the hands on healing method. This why Reiki can be said to be a two-fold practice: both the art of spiritual awaking (a path to self-realization) and an energetic healing art.


Gradually, with continued practice, Reiki can guide us to the higher levels of mental clarity, physical wholeness and a harmonious integration of our own being that leads us to experience our true disposition: inner peace, unconditional love, loving kindness, wisdom and compassion for all life.

Stomach Reiki healing during driving.

One afternoon we were driving home in our car after a beautiful hike in Oregon, USA. My husband said that he was not feeling well– that he was experiencing a very sharp pain in his stomach. There was no place to pull the car over at that moment on the busy freeway. So I proposed to do a Reiki healing as he was driving. I asked my mother, who was sitting behind him, to also do a distant healing at the same time. We asked Reiki energy to heal my husband the highest way is possible here and now. The road was smooth but fast, it was difficult to position my arms. But I kept following my intuition. Me and my mother were continuously channelling Reiki energy including our eyes. After 7 minutes, he remarked that he felt much better!The pain was gone and he was happy to drive us home for another one hour.

Passenger Reiki healing during my long distance flight

During my long distance flight from Amsterdam to Portland June, 2016, I heard an announcement asking if there were any doctors on the airplane. I felt that perhaps I might help with a Reiki healing. So I approached one of stewards and politely offered my help. She replied that there was already a medical doctor helping the passenger and invited me to return to my seat. But I felt a persistent intuition that perhaps the medical doctor might not be able to help. It was such a strong message in my mind that after 10 minutes, I approached another stewardess to explain to her about the Komyo ReikiDo Method. She became very interested but said first to wait on what doctor will say, and then if doctor could not help, they would call me.

Foot Reiki healing at the beach, by stepping on the sea-urchin.

One afternoon I went for a walk on the coast of the Indian Ocean in Zanzibar. I was enjoying the lovely blue sky, beauty of the ocean, and lots of amazing starfish during an ebb tide. Suddenly, I felt something sharp and prickly enter my foot. It was a small, flat dead fish covered with white, tiny needles–like a sea-urchin. I quickly tried to pull all the stickers out, asking the Reiki energy to heal my foot. I said to myself: “if the Founder Mikao Usui, by walking down from Mt. Kurama could heal his leg, Reiki can heal mine as well!”

After 10 minutes I started feeling better.
