The Journey

Robert’s Reiki journey was recorded in March, 2013 by Phyllis Furumoto, Hawayo Takata’s granddaughter, for The Reiki Talkshow.

Robert first began practicing Reiki in 1996, at the age of twenty one. He was amazed by the results observed during treatments, and this interest lead him to study with several Reiki Masters; exploring a variety of Reiki systems and techniques.

Soon, Robert realized that very few people were still teaching Reiki as practiced and taught by Hawayo K. Takata; who first brought the practice to the United States from Japan.

This astounded him. Hawayo K. Takata’s teachings were at once simple, clear, effective, and powerful.

So, in 2011, Robert founded The Reiki Preservation Society as a way for students to easily find a traditional Reiki Master/Teacher. He wanted to create a dedicated place for those still teaching in the style of Hawayo K. Takata – Usui Shiki (Reiki) Ryoho.

Today, the Reiki Preservation Society is a thriving space for learners, masters, and as a resource and depository for information regarding Usui Shiki (Reiki) Ryoho.

Besides teaching the system of Reiki, Robert also has a clinic where he offers Reiki and acupuncture treatments as well as herbal prescriptions. To learn more about the clinic visit Inner Balance Acupuncture.


A Note From Your Teacher

When I began studying Reiki, I was inspired by the teachings of Hawayo K. Takata; primarily because her teachings were so clear, simple, and effective.

Today, I am dedicated to passing on these powerful practices. I’m excited to welcome you to The Reiki Preservation Society, where you can discover Reiki, embark on your own journey, and further your studies with some of the most experienced master-teachers in the field.
