A MUST HAVE Book for EVERY Reiki Practitioner

The Original Reiki Handbook of Dr. Mikao Usui


Product Description

Dr. Mikao Usui developed the Reiki System and founded the original Japanese Usui Reiki Ryoho Gakkai organization. This book shows you the original hand positions of Dr. Usui’s Reiki Handbook. It has been illustrated with 100 photos to make it easier to understand. The hand positions for a great variety of health complaints have been listed in detail, making it a valuable reference work for anyone who practices Reiki. Now that the original handbook has been translated into English, Dr. Usui’s hand positions and healing techniques can be studied directly for the first time. Whether you are an initiate or a master,if you practice Reiki you can expand your knowledge dramatically as you following the footsteps of a great healer.


The translation of Dr. Usui’s Reiki handbook is a a very significant development for the Reiki community. At last we have proof that Reiki is not an oral tradition and that Dr. Usui gave out written material to all his students. I find the exercises to be useful and that my Reiki healing abilities have increased. The explanations and the insights about the origins of Reiki are also helpful. The color pictures of the hand positions Dr. Usui recommends for various illnesses and conditions are wonderful. I have tried some of them and found them to work. I am very pleased that we now have such detailed information from the founder of the Usui system to use in our Reiki practices. Thank you Arjava and Chetna for taking the time to write this very important book.

I am a Reiki Master Teacher and believe that the wonderful information researched and shared by Frank Arjava Petter in The Original Reiki Handbook of Dr. Usui is extremely helpful, beautifully photographed, and interesting.Dr. Usui’s methods shared here are quite advanced and can enhance the effectiveness for someone who has practiced using Reiki and now wants to learn more. I believe that it would be a bit challenging for a novice to pick up this book and learn what they need to know to find out about basic Reiki. In my humble opinion, I believe that there are other more suitable books out there for beginners – Healing Reiki by Eleanor McKenzie is one.This book should be a part of any serious Reiki practitioner’s library. Frank Arjava Petter is doing all of us a great service by researching and sharing this information, and I, like the others, hunger for more information from Dr. Usui. Mr. Petter seems clearly sincere in his desire to share his work with us, however, I would prefer more from Dr. Usui and less from Mr. Petter in the commentary. I thank Mr. Petter for finding and passing along this very helpful and loving, healing information!

I found this book to be incredibly useful in my Reiki practice. Even though I had the manuals from my Reiki Master, this book helped to fill in some of the gaps. I still refer to it from time to time.

This is a full-colour book that details with photographs the hands positions used in Reiki. It’s only 80 pages long, but it’s perfect for what it is. It covers all part of the body, including the head, the vertebrae and the kidneys. Essential little reference book if you practice or teach Reiki.

I am so glad they finally put this into print. It has all the hand positions along with specific treatments Usui used. A must have.

Being a student of Traditional Usui Reiki, I found this book to be very informative in both the history of Reiki and its applications. Very happy to utilize this book in my practice.
