About Reiki.

What is Reiki?

Rei-ki is a Japanese word, which refers to the active "life force" of the universe. For a long time it has been acknowledged by many eastern and ethnic cultures, that the universe is not just empty space but that it is filled with a dynamic, conscious energy. Names given to this energy include "Chi" in China, "Ki" in Japan, and "Prana" in India and Tibet.

Throughout history, there have been individuals who have had the ability to channel extra amounts of this energy through their hands to those in need. Often these people were known as natural or spiritual healers, who claimed that it was not they who healed but the result of the healing life force that flowed through their hands.

Until recently, it appeared that only those born with this particular gift were able to convey this energy to any degree, however, in the early 1900s, a Japanese man named Mikao Usui, was inspired to find a way to work with healing energy and through a series of personal experiences, discovered how to do that.

He applied these practices to his patients with great success, and taught other committed people to do the same. This began “Usui Shiki Ryoho” - the Usui System of Reiki Healing.

The word "Reiki" is now commonly used to refer to Mikao Usui's System of Reiki Healing, by the channelling of the Universal Life Energy through the hands. Reiki helps to heal mind, body and spirit, by accelerating the body's own ability to heal itself physically and by opening the mind to the emotional and mental causes of disease and pain.


About Roger.

Roger Weston with Phyllis Furumoto Roger Weston was initiated as a Reiki Master in Jan 1993. Over the following years, he participated in six of the "Master Intensives" conducted by Phyllis Furumoto (Reiki World Leader). In 2015, he arranged and facilitated Paul Mitchell’s programs in Perth. (Paul is ‘Head of Discipline’ in the Usui System).

Most recently, he attended the first level of the Japanese form of Reiki and has since delighted in the further exploration of this simple but amazing practice.

He is happily married to Toni, and shares his life with her and his dog Robbie, living near the beach at Eagle Bay, WA.

His teachers' lineage proceeds from Mikao Usui, Chujiro Hayashi, Hawayo Takata, Wanja Twan and Greg Williamson.

In 2005, he developed two Nationally Accredited and Nationally Recognised, Reiki courses. One, which corresponded to the first level of Reiki, and the other to assist public/professional Reiki practitioners. These two courses established Australian industry standards and a guaranteed level of competency and practice.

In 2017, the government re-accreditation fee was increased from $1000 to $9000, so it was no longer practical to continue with this formal accreditation, however, the exact same courses are being presented and are widely recognised and acknowledged throughout Australia.

Roger is a Foundation Member of the ‘Reiki Association (WA) Inc.’, a West Australian based, professional organisation, actively promoting excellence in all levels of Reiki practice.

Over the years, he has taught classes throughout Western Australia, in the Eastern states and overseas in India, Sri Lanka, Malaysia and Indonesia.




Thank you so much Roger.
What a thoroughly enjoyable experience it has been to do Reiki 1 then 2 this year, thank you so much for sharing your wisdom and teaching in a way that is so profound.
Our whole group had such an incredible experience.


Just a quick email to thank you for a really great weekend, I feel very empowered to know the energy I have been working with in my massage can be refined and directed into the body with great results. I have been reading up on some of the scientific peer reviewed studies that have been done on Reiki and it is good to know it also has a strong basis scientifically.
I will now work away at honing my skills and must say I feel a strong pull away from massage to pure energy work.


Thank you so much for the fantastic 2 days of sharing your knowledge and experience with us.
  I wanted to share with you that my Reiki 2 wish came true yesterday.
Already found my next one.
With love, gratitude and respect.


Thank you Roger!
I have been practising Reiki quite a lot lately! I am enjoying it. 
I recently messaged Jess and have spoken to her about volunteering at the hospital you spoke of. 
I feel like I’m just starting to grow and blossom spiritually and I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart! I will be back for cert 2 when it’s time.


Roger is absolutely awesome and teaches the totally traditional method.


Roger is amazing. Small groups. Traditional methods, modern take.
Exceptional master, teacher and practitioner.


Roger is a fantastic Teacher and committed to holding the ancestral lineages of the modality. Because of this I found his teachings to be authentic and a solid foundation that allowed my own unique gifts to emerge and evolve. Roger is able to teach to the masses whether you come from a science, esoteric or any other kind of background. He opens you up to a new way of seeing but most importantly develops a confidence and trust in your own innate abilities.
Reiki is just the beginning....Enjoy the journey.
