Reiki Lineage

Mikao UsuiReiki is largely an oral tradition with knowledge and expertise passed from Reiki Master to the student. As such, noting a Reiki Practitioner's lineage is an important component in determining authenticity.

Mikao Usui is recognized as the founder of Reiki - some call him the rediscoverer. Whatever he is called, he is at the head of the "Reiki Family Tree" and all lineages start with him.

An important Reiki tradition is to honor all our Masters and Teachers. The acknowledgement of our lineage is one way to provide that honor.
