History: Mrs. Takata in 1938, after the 2nd World War was the only Reiki teacher/master left. She was honored to spread Reiki art of healing to preserve this old tradition. She started training her students in 1970. She charged $10000 for Reiki masters training. She discouraged her students from experimenting new techniques. Her teaching style was very strict. Notes and recording machines were strictly forbidden. Thus the students were compelled to use limited techniques only and so the Reiki art of Healing remained limitised to few techniques. Therefore Reiki started loosing vitality and following.
The trained Reiki masters spread through out the World. These masters migrated to the western world also. They broke away from the hard and fast training rules, because they considered Reiki energy is flexible and varies from person to person. Further depth was added to this traditional healing system by exchanging knowledge and using inner guidance and intuitions. Now different techniques are practiced all over the world to gain serenity, inner peace, joy and health.
