The ‘founder’ of the technique we use as Reiki practitioners was a Japanese doctor named Mikao Usui, who lived around the turn of 20th century. He recognized the power of Reiki when he went on a self-discovery where he fasted for 21 days.

He then travelled throughout Japan and China teaching his technique and the Reiki Principles.
