Dr Chujiro Hayashi


Dr. Chujiro Hayashi, was a Naval Commander in the Naval Reserve. He came from a well educated and well to do family.

He met Dr. Usui in a marketplace holding a lit torch announcing his lecture at a nearby temple.

Dr. Hayashi was very impressed with the sincerity and conviction of Dr. Usui. He was asked by Usui to accompany him in his travels, Dr. Hayashi agreed. And they traveled around teaching and healing.

After Dr. Usui died, Dr. Hayashi and was the person with the greatest knowledge of reiki at that time and he continued to attune others to the levels of Reiki 1 and Reiki 2 and Reiki Master.

He opened a clinic in Tokyo near the Imperial Palace.

It consisted of eight beds in a large room, two practitioners per patient. One would treat the head and the other would be on the right treating the stomach area, then both would treat the patients back. The practitioners all worked here doing healing's. They would also go to the homes of sick people for house calls.

To become a Reiki Practitioner at that time one had to be accepted by the masters in the Reiki organization, and had to promise to use Reiki daily and volunteer some hours to practice Reiki regularly in the clinic.

It is thought that Dr. Hayashi developed the practice of treatment by using the hand positions over the body which are still taught today.

Being of a military background, and therefore more organized, Dr. Hayashi would have preferred an organized method of treatment. In addition an organized method of hand placements allows for full coverage of the body and organs.

Dr. Hayashi passed on Tuesday, May 10, 1940. This was just prior to World War II and it was clear that Japan would enter the war. Being a Reserve Officer, Dr. Hayashi knew he would be recalled to duty and therefore become responsible for killing many people. This he did not want to do, and so determined to end his life.

In addition he wished to, and did, pass leadership over to Reiki to Mrs. Takata…….
