From the Jikiden Reiki Association
The original term for Reiki is “Shin Shin Kaizen Usui Reiki Ryoho” or “Usui Reiki Treatment Method to Improve Body and Mind”. It is a nonreligious healing technique founded and developed in Japan by Mr. Mikao Usui (1865-1926）.
Reiki is an art of hands-on energy healing. It works for both physical and psychological aspects of health by reactivating the natural healing ability that humans originally possess. A Reiki treatment is administered by a practitioner who receives Reiki energy from the Universe. With simply laying-on of hands, the practitioner transmits the energy to the receiver.
What is Jikiden Reiki?
The word Jikiden means “directly passed down from one’s teacher”. Mr. Tadao Yamaguchi and his mother Chiyoko Yamaguchi founded the Jikiden Reiki Kenkyukai (institute) in 1999. The seminars are based on the teachings Chiyoko Yamaguchi received from Dr. Chujiro Hayashi, one of Mr. Usui’s prominent students. One of the most important assets of Jikiden Reiki is Chiyoko’s 65 years’ devotion to it. A prominent characteristic of Jikiden Reiki is its simplicity.
Your Jikiden Reiki treatment:
The client rests fully clothed on a massage table in a quiet environment. The practitioner’s hands are lightly placed on different points of the client’s body.

From the Quantum-Touch Community
Healing is a fascinating process which is generally very poorly understood. Although it may be tempting to believe that we can heal other people, it is of utmost importance to realize that all healing is self-healing. The body has an extraordinary intelligence and ability to heal itself. Given the right energetic, emotional, nutritional, and spiritual environments, the natural state of the body is perfect health. Our favorite definition of a healer is someone who was sick and got well; a great healer is someone who was very sick and got well quickly. Although all healing is self healing, we can assist other people heal with their own healing process.
Quantum-Touch uses life-force energy (known as chi in Chinese and prana in Sanskrit) to facilitate healing. The Quantum-Touch techniques teach us how to focus and amplify life-force energy by combining various breathing and body awareness exercises.
Life-force energy is an effective tool for healing because of the principles of resonance and entrainment. In physics, entrainment theory is the process where two vibrating objects, vibrating at different speeds, start to vibrate at the same speed when energy is transferred between the two objects. Entrainment shows up in chemistry, neurology, biology, medicine, and more. For example, crickets will chirp in unison and fireflies will flash at the same time.
Using the Quantum-Touch techniques, we can create a high frequency of life-force energy. If we place this field of high energy around an area of pain, stress, inflammation, or disease, the body can entrain to the higher frequency, thus amplifying the body’s ability to heal itself.
Quantum-Touch actually provides healing energy for the practitioner as well as for the person seeking healing. Using the Quantum-Touch techniques, the practitioner can hold an extraordinarily high vibration; this high vibration not only influences the client, but also provides healing energy for the practitioner. Rather than becoming drained form doing healing work, the practitioner will most often feel emotionally uplifted as a result!
Quantum-Touch is an effective method for reducing back pain, realigning structure, balancing organs, glands and systems, reducing muscle aches, healing injuries, healing burns, support emotional stability, relief from depression, and so much more.
