Beginning of Reiki in the West.

REIKI IN THE WEST

Reiki was brought to the West by Hawayo Takata (1900-1980), who learned Reiki with Dr. Hayashi in Japan, in 1935. Back in Hawaii, she opened two clinics, where she trained 22 Reiki Masters. At present, Reiki is spread throughout the world by her granddaughter and several Masters.
