Reiki is a light-touch, holistic form of alternative health practice that invokes “Universal Life Force energy” to address a range of issues.

Reiki (pronounced ray-kee) is a non-invasive, complementary therapy which uses light touch and intention to channel living, healing and nurturing energy to the recipient. By learning the methods of Usui Reiki, you can adopt an alternative health practice that promotes relaxation and stress reduction. Reiki is simplistic in nature, and when practiced for self-care students often report a profound transformation within themselves and in how they live their lives.

Some people seek Reiki training primarily to help themselves, their families and friends while others use it to start or complement a holistic healing profession. Completing the principles and attunements of the three courses prepares you to practice as a Reiki Master/Teacher.
