Jikiden Reiki was not mixed with other Reiki techniques or treatment methods and has thus retained its original and clear focus and power. In 1999, Chiyoko Yamaguchi and her son Tadao Yamaguchi founded the Institute “Jikiden Reiki Kenkyukai” to pass on this valuable original Reiki knowledge in an unmodified form.

Both have their roots in Mikao Usui Sensei’s Reiki. Nevertheless, they cannot be compared, as Western Reiki (Takata lineage) has left some elements behind and added some new ideas and concepts of other treatment methods such as the Indian chakra system. Jikiden Reiki (Yamaguchi lineage) is the unchanged original Reiki form Japan. The Jikiden Reiki training teaches the Byosen concept as well as the original Shirushi (symbols). Only someone who has the necessary practice hours and experiences with clients can become an autorised Shihan Kaku (assistant teacher) or a Shihan (teacher).

What is an alternative treatment method?
An alternative treatment method is a natural way of healing. Energy flows like “rivers” through our bodies. Our growth and healing processes are not possible without this energy. When the flow is dammed, there is too much water in one place and too little in another. This creates an energetic imbalance in the supply of cells and organs, which can lead to discomfort or even illness. With targeted Reiki treatments, these blockages can be dissolved and the energy can flow freely and unhindered. It is a subtle process of holistic health maintenance. Body and mind come back into balance. The healing process takes place without medication that causes negative side effects and puts additional strain on the body.
