Rika is originally from Japan and has now lived in London for over 10 years. She is one of the very few Jikiden Reiki ‘Dai-Shihan’ grade teachers in the world which gives her permission to instruct Jikiden Reiki students to the assistant teacher level ‘Shihan Kaku’.
Rika is also a full time holistic therapist with a wide range of skills. Her Jikiden Reiki journey began in 2004 when she first learnt with Tadao Yamaguchi – the head of the Jikiden Reiki Institute in Kyoto, Japan. Since then she has been working closely with the Institute and Mr. Yamaguchi.
Rika is a translator for Mr. Yamaguchi’s Jikiden Reiki training course and has organised seminars for him in the UK since 2006, as well as training with him in Japan. Having grown up in Japan, she has a deep understanding of the concept and culture behind the original Japanese Reiki system, which is hard to find outside of Japan. Rika passes on the original ideas, spirit and methods of authentic Usui Reiki with great clarity.
