The orignal Reiki method
Chiyoko Yamaguchi learned Reiki in 1938 at the age of 17 from Dr. Chujiro Hayashi, he was a direct student of Mikao Usui Sensei. She had practiced Reiki daily all her life and gained a lot of practical knowledge.
When it became known that Chiyoko Yamaguchi was one of the last living students of Dr. Chujiro Hayashi Sensei, she was asked to pass on her great knowledge.
Together with her son Tadao Yamaguchi, she founded her school “Jikiden Reiki Kenkyukai” in Kyoto, Japan 1999 and taught Reiki exactly the way she had learned it from Dr. Chujiro Hayashi.
Therefore, she gave the Reiki, which she taught the name “Jikiden Reiki”. Jikiden means “direct passed down”.
Since her death in 2003, her great knowledge has been passed on by her son Tadao Yamaguchi Sensei in Kyoto.
In Japan, the country of origin of Reiki, the Reiki taught by Mikao Usui Sensei, by Dr. Chujiro Hayashi and Chiyoko Yamaguchi were not mixed with other techniques and thus kept their unchanged and clear focus and strength.
In Jikiden Reiki, among other things, the unchanged original symbols of the Reiki as well as Byosen, the five-membered perception system are taught.
