Rika is originally from Japan and has now lived in the UK for over 20 years. Her Jikiden Reiki journey began in 2004 when she first learnt with Tadao Yamaguchi – the head of the Jikiden Reiki Institute. Since then she has been working closely with the Institute and Sensei Yamaguchi. In January 2012, She was granted to be 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’.
She is also a board member of International Jikiden Reiki Association as wells as chair of the Jikiden Reiki UK Association. Her passion is to connect and support Jikiden Reiki teachers and practitioners as well as to raise the profile of Reiki healing in society.
Rika is also a full-time holistic therapist with a wide range of skills and, of course, Jikiden Reiki is her speciality.
Rika is a translator for Sensei Yamaguchi’s Jikiden Reiki training course and has organised seminars for him in the UK, 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.
