About Five Element Reiki

Five Element Reiki is the result of over 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. I have been teaching Reiki since 1994, and have trained many professional practitioners from all walks of life. Please see the link for my bio at the top of this page for more information.

Five Element theory 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. Perhaps as long as 5,000 years by some estimates. 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, including organic and inorganic matter, and therefore in the bodies of physical beings as well. Understanding the model it describes bridges, and explains our nature from physicality to spirituality.

Reiki exists today in many forms, or systems, like Karuna Reiki and Usui-Tibetan Reiki. These typically represent a blending of Reiki teachings as they have existed in the west with teachings from other healing systems and philosophies. There are also other branches of Reiki in Japan which developed over time since the founder’s passing.

Traditional Japanese Reiki is a close reconstruction of Reiki as it was originally practiced in Japan during the early part of the 20th century.  Reiki is first and foremost, a personal practice of facilitation as well as a way of helping others through it’s techniques and principles.  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.

Many of the practices that holistic healers use today have their roots in Taoist Five Element theory, meridian theory, Ayurveda, and other 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.
