A century ago Dr. Mikao Usui, a distinguished Japanese scholar, researched many ancient sources in search of a method of healing through the hands that had been practiced in olden times.

Eventually, after learning and studying many languages, he discovered a formula in obscure Sanskrit writings. Following a 21 day meditation on Mt. Kuryama near Kyoto, Japan he received a remarkable confirmation of the healing properties of the energy renewal system he called "Rei-Ki".

After fulfilling a seven year mission in a beggars' camp, he set about teaching Rei-ki and trained as his successor Dr. Churjiro Hayashi of Tokyo, a retired naval officer who died in 1941.

He appointed Mrs. Hawayo Takata of Hawaii to ensure the survival of the technique during and after World War II.

In the decade before her death in 1980, Mrs. Takata started teaching in mainland USA and trained the Rev Beth Gray as the first western Rei-ki master in 1973.

The original traditions of Rei-ki have been faithfully preserved within the Usi Rei-ki network internationally in direct lineage by Beth Gray's understudy, Barbra McGregor.
