Usui Reiki Ryoho – Pure, Simple, Unchanged

with the original Japanese perspective – perfect for beginners

Reiki was originally developed as a Japanese spiritual meditation practice for natural healing by Dr Mikao Usui in the early 1900s. This wonderful man bought together over 700 years of ancient japanese spiritual wisdom into a simple and effective method for modern times to improve mind, body and spirit.

Reiki arrived to the West in 1938 via the teachings of one of Usui’s students – Mrs Takata – after which the Japanese spiritual practice of Reiki started to become diluted through western spiritualism and things started getting added to this elegant Japanese healing system – like the indian chakra system.

Reiki eventually came to be taught as a hands on healing practice that is learned very quickly and practiced often superficially and without the original intended philosophy or depth.

Originally, Reiki wasn’t solely about hands on healing, however, over the years it has become that and the Japanese meditations and deeper inner teachings have been dropped off.

Usui Reiki Ryoho has a focus on personal and spiritual development and cultivating inner energy as well as the more modern focus of hands-on healing.

Because the system is complete in it’s teachings, it’s extremely beginner friendly. Those that have done other Reiki courses often find the teachings brings much needed clarity, ease, depth and simplicity to their current practice.

Learning Reiki properly is an investment into your health and healing.  Learn to practice Reiki properly and you will flow with the Level 1 teachings to ground your busy mind, dissipate fear, anger, worry, relieve pain, anxiety, insomnia, indigestion and other symptoms that are worse when we are stressed and out of balance.  If you have a busy, worried, fearful or anxious mind (or generally live in your head a lot), Usui Reiki Ryoho lays a strong energetic foundation to unfold a grounded and balanced individual. My personal experience has been that more modern styles of Reiki with Mrs Takata in the lineage are incomplete in the teachings.

If you wish to heal yourself, Usui Reiki Ryoho equips you with all the original elements of Reiki. If you wish to become a healer for others and maybe later on a Reiki Master Teacher, this style of Reiki is a brilliant start to your journey.

I run small, friendly Reiki courses taught with the original Japanese perspective. One of my teachers is the respected teacher and author Frans Stiene at the International House of Reiki.

So if you are interested in learning Reiki properly, completely and going into the inner meanings of the spiritual practice, you are in safe, passionate hands!

I did level 2 under a different teacher in Usui Shiki Ryoho Reiki but I still had questions unanswered! Since doing Reiki 1 again with Hema I generally feel calmer, less stressed and angry. I loved the deeper focus which has mean’t I now have a ‘Real’ practise – not airy fairy. Thank you for giving full explanations so we gained deeper understanding rather than just following instructions mindlessly and putting our hands on ourselves and hoping we were healed I appreciated your ‘one size does not fit all’ attitude and no dogma. So glad I retrained with you.

I did Level 1 and 2 with Hema over five years ago and it truly transformed my life. I developed more positive habits accidentally – I started a regular Yoga routine, I started to cook healthy meals every day, I started to develop my skills in creating jewellery and now I have a jewellery business. I even quit smoking! Hema is truly always there for her students even years later. When I struggled very heavily with cravings for nicotine I contacted her for remote healing. Within half an hour my cravings were like blown away, never to return. Something I hadn’t even thought was possible! I received my Reiki Level 3 Masters from her yesterday and am excited to see, which other beautiful things are going to come from this! Thank you, Hema! I still feel very blessed our paths have crossed!
