– the history of Reiki

– Byosen scanning: how to locate areas in the body that need healing

– intuitive guidance

– hand placement for Reiki delivery

– distance Reiki

– self Reiki

– Reiki II symbols, how to draw and use them in healing sessions

– self-protection in healing work

– Attunements for Reiki I and II

– Reiki in a medical or mental health setting

– Reiki for trauma and PTSD

Reiki is now in use in over 800 hospitals in the US alone. Reiki is considered a form of bio-energetic healing. It is a completely non-toxic modality, meaning you cannot do it wrong or overdose on it! Studies have shown Reiki to be effective in alleviating chronic pain and stress among other conditions. It is considered a form of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM). Reiki has been practiced by all kinds of medical practitioners in diverse settings including the Harvard medical teaching hospitals.

Practice time is included in class to get familiar with the practices of Reiki and the symbols. There will be plenty of time for questions and answers.All participants will receive a Reiki certificate qualifying them to practice Reiki professionally and a manual from the International Center For Reiki Training.
