    Jikiden Reiki Institute

    The Jikiden Reiki Institute in Kyoto, Japan was founded by Chiyoko Yamaguchi and her son Tadao Yamaguchi in 2000 to preserve and teach Reiki in its original form as Chiyoko Sensei was taught in 1938 by Dr. Chujiro Hayashi. Jikiden Reiki is the “dento” or traditional Reiki without any western influence. The Institute headquarters serve as an office, training center and treatment clinic. A standard curriculum tuition have been established by the Institute for all practitioners and teachers. The Jikiden Reiki Institute has practitioners and teachers worldwide. To date World Congresses have been held in Barcelona, SP and Kyoto as well as a North American Congress in Vancouver, CA in 2019.

    Chairman, Tadao Yamaguchi is my Shihankaku teacher. He has taught Jikiden Reiki worldwide and leads the institute to preserve, teach and promote Jikiden Reiki to traditional medical doctors and nurses as a complementary method to be used in conjunction with conventional medicine. Jikiden Reiki is excellent for practical use with every day medical care in the home and can contribution to the reduction of unnecessary use of medications and reduce global medical waste.
