Usui Reiki Level 1 Certification Class

CE Credits offered see below

You will gain a thorough understanding of the system of Reiki from a Traditional Japanese and Western perspective, learn how to give yourself and others a complete Reiki treatment.


All Reiki Certification Classes are provided in an in person class setting. The class material comes from the Manuals developed by the International Center for Reiki Training.(ICRT) and the International House of Reiki

All classes offer a teaching style that combines education, demonstration, and practice sessions so you can feel confident as you develop your Reiki Practice for yourself and others.

In this class you’ll learn and practice Japanese techniques that can be used daily to ensure a clearer and stronger Reiki channel. These techniques have been missing from Western Reiki for more than 50 years. 

Usui placed much greater focus on healing the SELF, than is generally done in Western Reiki. You will be taught self-healing meditations based on that used by Usui with his students - an extremely relaxing process.
