The Usui System of Natural Healing, known as Reiki, is a form of healing using Universal Life Force Energy. Pioneered by Dr Usui Mikao in the early part of the 20th Century, Reiki is a unique and distinct healing modality. In his hand-written documents, Usui Sensei writes: "The Usui Reiki Therapy is something no one before has discovered, and bears comparison with no other treatment in the world".

Reiki is practiced throughout the world by many millions of people. Forms of Reiki have since been developed, using symbols and practices that differ greatly from the Usui System of Natural Healing. This book is based on what we know of the Usui System of Natural Healing, as taught by Mrs. Takata, and the surviving information we have direct from Usui Sensei's writings and teaching. Reiki as practiced and taught by Dr Usui is a powerful and complete form of self-development and a path to enlightenment. The system teaches us how to administer healing to ourselves and to others, and has given us the Reiki Ideals to help us live our lives for the highest good. Usui Sensei taught that enlightenment starts with the self - from within. Once attuned to the Reiki of the Universe, self-healing and correct living will ultimately lead to enlightenment. Reiki healing begins with the self and radiates outwards: practice Reiki to understand Reiki, understand Reiki to spread Reiki. Reiki is a gift to be shared. Usui Sensei envisioned a world greatly improved by the spread of the Reiki of the Universe. As you start your own journey of enlightenment and self-development, keep in mind the Ideals that Usui Sensei left us and his wish that we spread Reiki throughout the world. Take time for Reiki and work at your practice every day. Use Reiki to heal yourself and to heal others. Always remember that Reiki can help heal any condition (be it is physical, emotional or spiritual) no matter how difficult or hopeless it may seem. As you progress and become familiar with the great Reiki of the Universe, never lose sight of the infinite nature of Reiki. Do not put limits on Reiki energy, for it is as limitless and infinite as the Universe.
