Become A Certified Reiki Practitioner

Learn to channel gentle, healing Reiki energy to nurture,
re-energize, ground and protect.

Usui Reiki is a healing art that comes from Dr. Usui in Japan. Reiki is a well-respected and trusted, non-invasive hands on modality. It teaches us to reconnect with the universal life force energy – in Chinese called Qi, in Sanskrit known as Prana.

Reiki not only helps you to heal on a mental, emotional, and physical level, it also supports your personal development by enhancing self-esteem, confidence and self-worth. The training will assist you with energy revitalizing, energy protection, grounding, and developing a way to be at peace with yourself and your environment.
