Welcome to the Council of Australian Reiki Organisations, CARO.









The Council of Australian Reiki Organisations, CARO, would like to offer visitors to this website a brief definition of Reiki and the Usui system of Reiki (USR) to support a clear historical perspective of the system.

The energy, which translated from the Japanese, means spiritual energy or, as it is more commonly rendered in the West, universal life force energy.

It comprises of a number of elements including hands-on/near practice, techniques and/or meditations, symbols and mantras, attunements performed in person and Mikao Usui's precepts that promote holistic healing on physical, psychological,
