Reiki has a very unique history and although the Reiki energy itself goes back over 2500 years, as evidenced in Sanskrit Sutras and the writings of Tibetan Monks depicts, the history of Reiki as taught today is much more modern.

It begins in the early 1900s. Mikao Usui, born on the 15th August 1865, discovered Reiki and It’s believed he developed this system of healing based on a formula he found in ancient Sanskrit Buddhist sutras.

Mikao Usui Sensei spent the rest of his life sharing his Reiki system and trained many others how to teach it. Before his death in 1926 he had set up a group called the Usui Shiki Ryoho in Tokyo to continue on with the practice after his death. Through this group many teachers have been trained in Japan.
