About The Reiki Association

The Reiki Association (TRA) was established in the UK in 1991. British in origin it is open to those with Reiki around the world. It grew out of a desire from Reiki students and Masters to be active in the support of Reiki and to create a Reiki community. TRA is now a vibrant association serving its members in the UK and overseas bringing a valuable sense of connection and of being part of a wider Reiki community.


There are now many variations of Reiki. Membership is open to Reiki students who have been initiated into Reiki in the physical presence of their Master. The core system of TRA is Usui Shiki Ryoho in the lineage Usui, Hayashi, Takata, Furumoto, Reindl. This Reiki system was passed down by Hawayo Takata to her granddaughter Phyllis Furumoto, and then to Phyllis' chosen successor, Johannes Reindl.


TRA is a not-for-profit organization. An elected Council of up to 6 people, who each hold office for 3 years, manage the general business. The work is carried out by the Circle of Service, some of whom are volunteers and some are paid part time staff. We welcome volunteers to join the Circle of Service.


The Association is not just here for people working as Reiki practitioners, although support for practitioners is one of our roles. We also foster the ‘folk art’ or informal practice of Reiki for people who treat their family and friends or even perhaps just themselves. ALL aspects of Reiki practice are important for us: folk art/student practice, public practice and professional practice.


The Association has a Code of Ethics which all members agree to abide by.
