Learn Reiki With Rika Tanaka – Jikiden Reiki Dai Shihan (Senior Teacher)

For over ten years I have been lucky enough to work directly with the head of Jikiden Reiki as his translator. As a result I have participated in his Reiki courses at all levels many times as delivering many of my own. Being a holistic therapist I also practice Reiki treatments regularly. I have hundreds of hours of practical experience too. As a result I have gained a lot of knowledge and experience. I am able to give detailed explanations of the Japanese ideas and nuances of the Japanese language to a Western audience.  Plus I have training in anatomy and physiology, which comes in handy in practical treatment demonstrations.

My Experience From Jikiden Reiki Training

Jikiden Reiki training changed my life and it can change yours. It started as a small interest in something that might be of use to me as a holistic therapist. I had no idea it would turn into me teaching hundreds of people. Apart from countless hours Reiki treatment experience I have also:

  • Met lots of wonderful people
  • Ran Reiki tours of Japan
  • Had to get to grips with public speaking and translation.
  • Participated in events with the head of the Jikiden Reiki Institute across the world.

It has been an amazing journey for me so far and continues to be. I invite you to become part of it and see what kind of journey you have. Jikiden Reiki struck me as such a great thing. I have devoted a big part of my life sharing it with others and helping the Jikiden Reiki Institute. You can also find out more on my Reiki Courses page including prices and other information.

Join Me for High Quality Traditional Reiki Training

I am a highly experienced Reiki teacher and professional holistic therapist. Being Japanese I have deep understanding of the culture behind the original Japanese system. This allows me to give detailed explanations to my students. I offer great insight into the pronunciation and understanding of the language, symbols and ideas.

Teaching Reiki is about enabling someone to use a natural ability they have already, everyone can do it. This natural ability is awakened with a process knows as Reiju. After Reiju you can increase the amount of energy you can flow to become become effective at helping yourself and others improve body and mind. To do this means simply to use Reiki regularly. Once you have Reiki in our life you never lose it.
