    Usui Reiki Practitioner Level 1

    Usui Reiki Practitioner Level I Home Study Course – 1 module – 30 hours

    Reiki is a simple and powerful system of laying on of hands and remote healing that can transform lives. Reiki Works on the body, mind, emotional and spiritual levels it releases blocked energy, promotes relaxation and reduces stress.

    Reiki has an innate intelligence and goes wherever needed in the body, helping to cleanse the body of toxins. Reiki also works on plants, animals, and even some machines. Over time it can enhance intuition, meditation and personal spiritual evolution .

    Reiki is a system of energy healing from Japan using methods channeled by Dr. Mikao Usui, at the end of a 21 day fast and meditation on Mount Kuruama in Japan. The actual history of Reiki has been somewhat shrouded in legend and myth. Only recently has research into Usui Sensei’s real life begun. What is certain is that the Usui System of Natural Healing was introduced to the West by Mrs. Hawayo Takata from Hawaii. Mrs. Takata received Reiki Attunements from Dr. Hayashi, who had a Reiki clinic in Tokyo. She was visiting relatives in Japan and had successful treatments for a chronic illness at Dr. Hayashi’s Clinic.

    Reiki is a natural system of energy healing. It is done by placing hands on or near the recipient. The practitioner runs Reiki energy while placing their hands on or over a series of locations on the recipients body. This energy is the life force that permeates the universe. Practitioners can also work remotely. Remote techniques are usually taught at the second degree level.

    The process of doing Reiki treatment is thought of as "laying on of hands" or "spiritual healing" and is considered to be a metaphysical phenomenon. Reiki also has elements based on the traditions of Asian medicine and martial arts which have given rise to acupuncture, chi gong, tai chi and similar practices.

    Reiki is related to some practices of Chinese Medicine, Chi gong and other Holistic Medicine theories and modalities. Reiki is somewhat of a fusion of spiritual healing and some traditional Asian medical, spiritual and health practices. The hand placements correspond to some of the same points which are used in Acupuncture, Reflexology and other practices but no needles, pressure or massage is used.

    Reiki can help alleviate suffering, whether it be of a physical, emotional, mental or spiritual nature. This means that Reiki can heal. This statement is not a guarantee or a promise that someone will be relieved of any ailment whatsoever with a single, or even with multiple, Reiki treatments. In most cases Reiki does enhance the effects of medical treatment when used in conjunction with it.

    An underlying principle of Reiki is that it can do no harm and cannot be used for any harmful purpose. When we speak of healing, a well physical body may be the first thing that comes to mind. However, the root meaning of The word "heal" is "whole". The practice of healing is the process of becoming whole on all levels of being including physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual.

    These are perfect continuing education courses for therapists/practitioners of other modalities such as color/crystal therapy, energy medicine, reflexology, Massage Therapy, Aromatherapy, Sound Therapy, Homeopathy, etc.
