Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words: “Rei,” which means “Divine Wisdom or the Higher Power,” and “Ki,” which is life force energy (also known as Chi or Prana). So Reiki is actually “spiritually guided life-force energy.”
Reiki is a simple, natural, and safe method of energy healing that anyone can use. It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.
An amazingly simple technique to learn, the ability to use Reiki is not taught in the usual sense, but is transferred to the student during a Reiki class. This ability is passed on during an “attunement” given by a Reiki master and allows the student to tap into an unlimited supply of “life force energy” to improve one’s health and enhance the quality of life.
An attunement is like a special and sacred meditation, and brings us into alignment with the Reiki energy. A Reiki attunement is activated by a Reiki Master-Teacher, who has been trained in the attunement technique, and who shares the process with a person who has the spiritual desire and intention to awaken their inner healing power.
The use of Reiki is not dependent on one’s intellectual capacity or spiritual development and therefore is available to everyone. It has been successfully taught to thousands of people of all ages and backgrounds.
There are three levels of Reiki classes and attunements in the Usui Reiki Tradition. Certificates of Completion are offered for each level of Reiki and Animal Reiki training.

For most people, an in-person Reiki class is optimal for experiencing and learning to work with the deeply transformational energy of Reiki. An in-person class also provides the opportunity to practice sharing Reiki with other people and animals.
However, for people for whom an in-person Reiki class is not available or possible, I offer private, 1:1 or small group instruction via telephone and Skype.
I also offer private, 1:1 mentoring for Reiki practitioners via phone or Skype. Topics may include:
