Explanation Of Instruction For The Public
By the Founder of Usui Reiki Ryoho, Mikao Usui
It is an old custom to teach the method to only my descendant for keeping a wealth within a family. Especially the modern societies we live in, wish to share happiness of coexistence and coprosperity. So I donít allow my family to keep the method to ourselves.
My Usui Reiki Ryoho is an original, it's nothing like this in the world. So I would like to release this method to the public for everyone's benefit and hope for everyone's happiness. My Reiki Ryoho is an original method based on intuitive power in the universe. By this power, body gets healthy and enhances happiness of life and peaceful mind.
Nowadays people need improvement and reconstruction inside and outside of life, so the reason for releasing my method to the public is to help people with illness of body and mind.

Graciously I have received Meiji Emperor's last injunctions. For achieving
my teachings, training and improving physically and spiritually and walking
in a right path as a human being, first we have to heal our spirit. Secondly
we have to keep our body healthy. If our spirit is healthy and conformed
to the truth, body will get healthy naturally. Usui Reiki Ryohoís missions
are to lead peaceful and happy life, heal others and improve happiness
of others and ourselves.
Q. Is there any similarity to hypnotism, Kiai method, religious method or any other methods?
No, there is no similarity to any of those methods. This method is to help
body and spirit with intuitive power, which Iíve received after long and
Q. Then, is it psychic method of treatment?
Yes, you could say that. But you could also say it is physical method of
treatment. The reason why is Ki and light are emanated from healer's body,
especially from eyes, mouth and hands. So if healer stares or breathes
on or strokes with hands at the affected area such as toothache, colic
pain, stomach-ache, neuralgia, bruises, cuts, burns and other swellings
with pain will be gone. However a chronic disease is not easy, it's needed
some time. But a patient will feel improvement at the first treatment.
There is a fact more than a novel how to explain this phenomenon with modern
medicine. If you see the fact you would understand. Even people who use
sophistry can not ignore the fact.
Q. Do I have to believe in Usui Reiki Ryoho to get better result?
No. Itís not like a psychological method of treatment or hypnosis or other
kind of mental method. There is no need to have a consent or admiration.
It doesnít matter if you doubt, reject or deny it. For example, it is effective
to children and very ill people who are not aware of any consciousness,
such as a doubt, rejection or denying. There may be one out of ten who
believes in my method before a treatment. Most of them learn the benefit
after first treatment then they believe in the method.
Q. Can any illness be cured by Usui Reiki Ryoho?
Any illness such as psychological or an organic disease can be cured by
Q. Does Usui Reiki Ryoho only heal illness?
No. Usui Reiki Ryoho does not only heal illness. Mental illness such as
agony, weakness, timidity, irresolution, nervousness and other bad habit
can be corrected. Then you are able to lead happy life and heal others
with mind of God or Buddha. That becomes principle object.
Q. How does Usui Reiki Ryoho work?
never been given this method by anybody nor studied to get psychic power
to heal. I accidentally realized that I have received healing power when
I felt the air in mysterious way during fasting. So I have a hard time
explaining exactly even I am the founder. Scholars and men of intelligence
have been studying this phenomenon but modern science canít solve it. But
I believe that day will come naturally.
Q. Does Usui Reiki Ryoho use any medicine and are there any side effects?
Never uses medical equipment. Staring at affected area, breathing onto
it, stroking with hands, laying on of hands and patting lightly with hands
are the way of treatment.
Q. Do I need to have knowledge of medicine?
My method is beyond a modern science so you do not need knowledge of medicine.
If brain disease occurs, I treat a head. If itís a stomach-ache, I treat
a stomach. If itís an eye disease, I treat eyes. You donít have to take
bitter medicine or stand for hot moxa treatment. It takes short time for
a treatment with staring at affected area or breathing onto it or laying
on of hands or stroking with hands. These are the reason why my method
is very original.
Q. What do famous medical scientists think of this method?
A. The famous medical scientists seem very reasonable. European medical scientists have severe criticism towards medicine.
To return to the subject, Dr. Nagai of Teikoku Medical University says, "we as doctors do diagnose, record and comprehend illnesses but we donít know how to treat them."
Dr. Kondo says, "it is not true that medical science made a great progress. It is the biggest fault in the modern medical science that we donít take notice of psychological affect.
Dr. Kuga says, "it is a fact that psychological
therapy and other kind of healing treatment done by healers without doctorís
training works better than doctors, depending on type of illnesses or patientís
personality or application of treatment. Also the doctors who try to repel
and exclude psychological healers without doctorís training are narrow-minded."
It is obvious fact that doctors, medical scientists and pharmacists recognize the effect of my method and become a pupil.
Q. What is the governmentís reaction?
A. On February 6th, 1922, at the Standing Committee on Budget of House of Representatives, a member of the Diet Dr. Matsushita asked for governmentís view about the fact that people who do not have doctorís training have been treating many patients with psychological or spiritual method of treatment.
Mr. Ushio, a government delegate says, "a little over 10 years ago people thought hypnosis is a work of long-nosed goblin but nowadays study has been done and itís applied to mentally ill patients. It is very difficult to solve human intellect with just science. Doctors follow the instruction how to treat patients by medical science, but itís not a medical treatment such as electric therapy or just touching with hands to all illnesses." So my Usui Reiki Ryoho does not violate the Medical Practitioners Law or Shin-Kyu (acupuncture and moxa treatment) Management Regulation.
Q. People would
think that this kind of healing power is gifted to the selected people,
not by training.
Q. Then, can anybody
receive Denju of Usui Reiki Ryoho?
Q. If I can heal others, can I heal myself?
you canít heal yourself, how can you heal others.
Q. How can I receive Okuden?
includes Hatsureiho, patting with hands method, stroking with hands method,
pressing with hands method, telesthetic method and propensity method. I
will teach it to people who have learned Shoden and who are good students,
good conduct and enthusiasts.
Q. Is there higher level more than Okuden?
A. Yes, there is a level called Shinpiden.
