Reiki Master Teacher, Ayurvedic Lifestyle Consultant, Healing Land Reiki Co-Founder
Lena Takahashi is an Usui/Holy Fire®︎ III Karuna Reiki®︎ Master Teacher, a certified Ayurvedic Lifestyle Consultant and is Co-Founder of Healing Land Reiki with Muniqui Muhammad.
Lena was born in Ukraine and moved to Japan when she was 18. Lena speaks Russian, Ukrainian, Japanese and English fluently.
She worked in Japanese cell phone customer service for 12 years. Working in a Japanese corporate world, helped her gain a lot of cultural understanding and various communication skills to work with Japanese people.
Since her arrival in Japan, she naturally learned Japanese so well, that many people relate to her as a Japanese person.
Lena was introduced to Reiki in 2015 and she studied to become a Reiki Master the next year. At that time, her goal was to open an Ayurvedic practice in Japan. However, she was slowly guided to change her main focus from Ayurveda to Reiki.
In 2017, Lena studied Holy Fire®︎ II Karuna Reiki®︎ with William Rand and Colleen Benelli at Mt. Kurama, Reiki’s Birthplace. That training has completely changed her life. She became an official Representative of The International Center for Reiki Training (The ICRT) for Karuna Reiki®︎ and Holy Fire®︎ Reiki in Japan.
Her goal is to provide high quality Training in all levels of Holy Fire®︎ Reiki (Usui and Karuna Reiki®︎) for Japanese people and everyone from all over the world.
She is based in Sendai, Miyagi, Japan.
