Many of us Reiki Masters dedicate our lives teaching and practicing this Japanese art, yet we know little about Mikao Usui, the man who founded and developed the practice almost 100 years ago. There is virtually nothing available to the general public (outside of the secretive Usui Reiki Ryoho Gakkai) that documents how and what Usui taught and practiced. Until now…

In 1933, Kaiji Tomita, a student of Usui, wrote a book called Reiki To Jinjutsu – Tomita Ryu Teate Ryoho – Reiki and Humanitarian Healing: The Tomita Method of Hands-On Healing. Tomita’s methods were so popular that he is said to have opened 35 centers and more than 200,000 students studied in his Reiki lineage.

This book by Tomita is among the most important texts documenting the early practice of Reiki, providing insight into Mikao Usui’s teachings. We have embarked on an English translation project to make it available to those interested in how Reiki was used closer to the time Usui practiced in the 1920s.

To support our our efforts and join us in this exploration, please consider donating to our commissioned translation of the text.
