Usui Reiki is achieved through hands on treatments if client allows.  It works just as effectively by holding one's hands above the body and not physically connecting.  Without a client's express request and permission, Darlene-Marie Slagle will not use a hands on treatment.

Usui Shiki Ryoho (the Usui System of Natural Healing, is a Japanese Healing Art and was founded in Japan. and the basis of the practice is referred to as self healing/self treatment. More than a century ago, Mikao Usui began a personal search that ended with his having contact with the energy Reiki. Eventually, Reiki was introduced out of Japan via Hawaii in 1937 by Hawayo Takata Sensei. It is passed on from one person to another through a specific initiation, teachings and a defined form of practice.  Darlene-Marie received her transmission through the teaching of Master Teacher Joan Ruggerio, who was attuned by the well-known John Harvey Gray (trained by Mrs. Takata).

The Usui System is a way of working with reiki for healing of self and others, addressing the whole person on the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual levels.

From The Reiki Association web site:

Usui Shiki Ryoho has been defined by the present lineage bearer, Phyllis Lei Furumoto, as having four Aspects: healing practice, personal development, spiritual discipline and mystic order. The Aspects accompany a central core of practice and philosophy referred to as the Nine Elements. The combination of all the Elements and Aspects and their inter-relationships creates the system which has a proven, predictable capacity to take people along a profound path of healing, growth and spiritual deepening. If any part is changed or left out, the form is no longer recognized and is considered to be another form of Reiki practice.

The importance and deeper meaning of the elements and aspects and the whole system is mainly beyond words and gradually unfolds through personal experience. The following is a brief outline.

Four Aspects
Healing Practice - Usui Shiki Ryoho has as its basis self treatment and a form of treatment to be used as a way to treat others. This is achieved through a series of laying-on-of-hands treatment positions.

Personal Development – Through the practice of this system, the student is presented in everyday life with choices. These choices address underlying principles and beliefs that the student has acquired over the years of life. These principles and beliefs are often challenged as they may not be beneficial for the student’s path toward authenticity.

Spiritual Discipline - inherent in the regular practice of the Form is the connection to spirit within each of us as a human being. This connection to spirit can result in students considering this practice as a spiritual path.

Mystic Order - practice of Usui Shiki Ryoho brings mystic experiences and a sense of connection and common purpose with others following this path.
