Reiki Level 1 Certification


Reiki is universal life force energy. The word “Reiki” comes from the Japanese words REI—meaning universal and KI—meaning energy. Reiki is a whole and complete energy and when a session is given, allows us to recharge ourselves. Do you ever feel like you have low energy or are just in a grumpy mood?This is usually due to our chakras (the main energy centres of the body) getting clogged with negative energy from some of our everyday actions and activities. Reiki can leave you feeling balanced and energized ready to face the day with a positive outlook.
It is safe to receive Reiki anytime, anyplace and in any situation. It can also be combined with other healing methods and medical remedies.   
This ancient natural healing practice has become one of the most popular forms of alternative holistic healing because of the positive effects of session and the ability to promote healing on all levels.

There are many benefits to having a Reiki session that include:

  • restores and balances natural energy and releases accumulated daily stress by creating a vital flow of healing energy
  • good for preventing disorders, maintaining positive wellness and promoting healing especially when used with other modalities
  • a powerful tool for personal development and spiritual enlightenment
  • does not conflict with religious beliefs
  • minimizes feelings of helplessness when faced with a crisis situation or different types of trauma

Reiki is a hands-on on energy session. When a practitioner performs Reiki, usually the client sits or lies comfortably, fully clothed. The session usually lasts about an hour and the healer follows a sequence of hand positions, generally starting at the client’s head and ending at their feet. Normally there will be a deep sense of relaxation, and at times there may be a sensation of the energy working in the body.
There are many benefits and different reasons for getting a Reiki session. We all want to live a more positive lifestyle, manifesting, and actualizing what is the best for us. Reiki is seen as an energizing, positive influence on the body, and it allows us to bring these thoughts and feelings into our everyday lives.  
Reiki can influence your life, bringing in positive changes or allowing you to deal with old issues that need to be cleared away so you can move on to better things. Reiki is a different individual experience for each and every person, creating a unique perspective on their Reiki session.
If you are feeling like it’s time for a change or you have heard of Reiki, but never had the opportunity to try it out, now is your chance. Allow the healing energy of Reiki to influence your life and bring your mind, body and spirit back into balance.
