Jikiden Reiki® or Usui Reiki Ryoho, is the purest form of Reiki. It originated in Japan and has not been altered in any way.This is the essence of Reiki.
Jikiden Reiki® has no western influences. Jikiden means “directly taught” in Japanese. Jikiden Reiki® is free of western influence. With roots that go back almost to the discovery of Reiki itself. It differs to “western” style Reiki in approach, attitude and ideas. Some people notice a real difference in the “feel” of the Reiki energy.
During a Jikiden Reiki® Physical Treatment Session there are no specific hand positions. Where and for how long a practitioner places their hands is determined by the practitioner feeling for Byosen. Byosen is the accumulation of toxins that can occur anywhere in the body and is the source of illness and dis-ease. Jikiden Reiki® practitioners feel/sense where the Byosen is and whether is it s a large or small amount. The practitioner will generally keep their hands in the areas that need the most treatment until the toxin level has significantly reduced.
