About Mikao Usui

Mikao Usui created the Reiki system of Natural Healing. A Japanese healing discipline that became a global phenomenon during the years of the New Age Movement.

After developing Reiki, Usui worked in a poorer section of Kyoto for several years, but in 1921, moved to the Harajaju district of Tokyo where he set up a school and clinic.

He taught the Reiki system to some 2,000 students, several of whom opened clinics and centers around the country.

Courses are provided in conjunction with the Capital Reiki Academy.
