Become a Certified Reiki Practitioner
Reiki - the most well known, easiest to learn, and most scientifically
studied natural energy healing system in the world. Reiki is available in many hospitals throughout the United States, and is used by a majority of massage therapists.
Reiki restores and balances life force energy, promoting healing
on all levels. Calming the fight-or-flight response, mitigating source causes of concerns, conditions, and issues, it's no wonder more and more people are asking for Reiki.
Easy to perform, easy to learn, Reiki in no way conflicts with, and actually supports any religious or spiritual belief system. Reiki blends seamlessly with any other modality, and can be safely done at any time, any and every where.
Whether you're an accomplished healer, or a complete novice searching for something 'more', personal growth and a stronger connection to what I like to refer to as "The Unseen" is a sure part of Reiki training.
Reiki energy enhances the body's innate ability to heal itself. It is a holistic, natural healing system that cannot cause harm, and effects on all levels: body, emotions, mind, and spirit. Reiki is completely compatible with, and supportive of one's personal belief system. It is seamlessly well-suited with other healing modalities. Perfect for the beginner or to enhance existing abilities.
In 1st Degree we get the energy turned on, so to speak, and give you some tools which we practice in class. Students learn various ways to use Reiki for self, and for others.
2nd Degree deepens the experience a great deal. This training includes tools for physical and emotional healing, and how to do healing at a distance. We teach about the chakras, their relationships to each bodily organ, their emotional counterparts, and using Reiki to heal on the physical, emotional, and the mental levels impacting a person's condition.
Where it Comes From, A Brief History of Reiki
The following three passages trace the story of Reiki as researched by William Lee Rand. A more detailed explanation can be found in his book, Reiki, The Healing Touch.
Dr. Mikao Usui
Dr. Mikao Usui is the founder of the Usui System of Reiki. He was born August 15, 1865 in the village of Yago in the Yamagata district of Gifu prefecture, Japan. He traveled to Europe and China studying medicine, psychology, and religion. It is thought that he was from a wealthy family, as in Japan only the wealthy could afford to send their children to school. Eventually he became the secretary to Shinpei Goto, head of the department of health and welfare who later became the Mayor of Tokyo. The influential connections Dr. Mikao Usui made at this job helped him to spread the news about Reiki when it first came to him.
