From Ancient Far East to Modern Medicine

The modern application of Reiki begins in the 20s of the last century in Japan when Mikao Usui, the founder of Reiki, formulated and successfully applied and taught this natural healing system. Successor Nasui, Cujiro Hayashi opens the first Reiki clinic in Tokyo and establishes cooperation with health institutions. After the Second World War, Reiki expanded throughout the world and today, except in Japan and other Far East countries, it is the most widespread in the United States, Canada, almost all European countries, South America and Australia.
