Reiki is an intuitive Japanese healing art of hands-on healing. Powerful in its strength and its simplicity, Reiki relaxes, relieves stress, naturally detoxifies and provides healing simultaneously on every level – physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. Reiki, which means “soul energy” or divinely guided life force energy, facilitates the body’s own natural ability to heal. Anyone, of any age can make Reiki a part of their lives. Reiki is complementary to all traditional medical treatments. It is safe in all situations for all ages as well as pets.
Students will learn energy principles, the history of Reiki, the 5 Reiki Principles, traditional hands- on techniques for self-treatment as well as the treatment of others. There will be ample time for practice using your “Reiki” hands. We all channel energy to some degree. With Reiki we become more open to that energy. Reiki is everyone’s birthright. Each student receives 4 attunements. The attunement process differentiates Reiki from all other forms of hands-on healing as it opens etheric energy centers, clearing blockages and allows a student to become a clear channel for Reiki. Each student will receive a manual and a certificate upon completion from the International Association of Reiki Practitioners. Bring your friends or a family member and learn Reiki together so you have instant practice partners later!
