History of Reiki
Dr. Mikao Usui is the Founder of Reiki as Natural Healing. He was the president of a small Christian university in Kyoto, Japan called Doshishua University. One day, a senior student asked him whether he believes in Bible and whether he believes in the story in Bible that says Jesus cured the sick by touch healing. This created a deep interest in Dr. Usui to find out how Jesus was doing touch healing. He wandered all over the world to find out the secrets of touch healing. Lastly, he got it from Sanskrit myths while he was studying it in Tibet. After getting the theoretical knowledge there, he implemented the same with himself for 21 days. On the 21st day, he received immensely powerful cosmic energy in himself. He started to use it and thus he invented Reiki as a practical natural healing method. He came back to Japan, taught this technique to people and started giving Reiki treatment to people in Japan.
