My Usui Shiki Ryoho Reiki Lineage

Students are always curious about my Reiki lineage because soon it will be their Reiki lineage!

What is Reiki Lineage

In a nutshell, Reiki lineage is simply the list of who taught the person, who taught the person, who taught the person, who taught you.

Kind of like a Reiki family tree.

Training with me, you’ll be quite surprised to find how close you’ll be in lineage to Mrs. Hawayo Takata, the woman who brought Reiki from Japan to the United States.

First, it’s important to understand that there are many different styles of Reiki.

And, with the right intention, they all work! The Reiki method I use and teach is Usui Shiki Ryoho.

Usui Shiki Ryoho is the original Japanese branch of Reiki that focuses on the spiritual teachings of Usui and offers training in a non-Western format.

Usui Shiki Ryoho translates as Usui Spiritual Energy Healing Method and the Usui Reiki Ryoho lineage aims to reflect the practices that were taught by Usui Mikao during his lifetime.

I received my training and attunements from Reiki Master Richard Fiallo of Healing Today in Plant City, FL.

My Reiki Lineage is as follows:

  • Dr. Mikao Usui (1919-1922) Sensei Gyohan
  • Dr. Chujiro Hayashi (1930’s)
  • Mrs. Hawayo Takata (1939)
  • Iris Ishikuro (1973)
  • Arthur Robertson (1982)
  • Jeanine Sande (1989)
  • Renaldo Torres (1994)
  • Richard Fiallo (1999)
  • Rebecca Baumgartner / Joyce Dierschke (2012)
  • Your Name Here! 🙂

Are you wondering why the “Sensei Gyohan” appears after Dr. Mikao Usui’s name?

“Sensei” means teacher. It is an esteemed and honorable title in Japanese culture.

And, Goyohan was Dr. Usui’s pen name.

I practice both traditional and contemporary Usui Shiki Ryoho.

Another name for Usui Shiki Ryoho is “The Usui Method of Natural Healing”.

I use the traditional Usui Shiki Ryoho concepts, but at times incorporate additional modern methods to provide an advanced healing session.
