Five Element Reiki is the result of almost twenty years of study and application of the foundation principles, and source knowledge of Reiki. It is not a new system of Reiki, per se, but a bridging of modern Reiki session practice with this knowledge.
Five Element theory in this context refers to the Taoist concept of Five Elements, which is 2,500 to 3,000 years old, and has existed in a more rudimentary way even longer. This is the core knowledge of many eastern practices, such as Feng Shui, Martial Arts, energy work (Chi Gong), Classical Chinese Medicine, and Taoist spiritual practices. The Five Elements are not to be confused with the periodic table of elements in western science. Five Element describes the qualities of life force energy cycles in Nature, and therefore in the bodies of physical beings as well. This understanding bridges, and explains our nature as spiritual beings in physical bodies.
Traditional Japanese Reiki is a close reconstruction of Reiki as it was origionally practiced in Japan during the early part of the 20th century. My study of Traditional Japanese Reiki, beginning in 1998, accelerated the process of moving deeper into the roots of Reiki, and resulted in the development of the Five Element Reiki practitioner classes.
All holistic energy healing practices that exist today have their roots in Taoist Five Element theory, and Ayurveda, health and healing practices which were developed from these bodies of knowledge. That is also the case with modern massage techniques. In the past few hundred years, as East and West have very slowly come closer together, a wider exchange of this knowledge has been made possible.
