Reiki is a philosophy and healing method originated in Japan for the purpose of maintaining healthful flow of Chi, bringing together physical, mental and emotional balance.  It is calming, relaxing, and easy to perform on yourself and other beings, including animals and plants. The feeling of this waveform of energy is described in Gendai Reiki Ho as "the energy of love harmony, and healing that resonates with human consciousness or spiritual awareness."

This school of Classical Japanese Reiki is particularly aligned with Nature and the aura of the heart. In this Certification Course, you will be empowered into Reiki (Level One) and learn how to sense and perceive, and utilize it using specific hands on as well as distant methods to reduce stress and pain, speed healing, increase intuition, manifest goals, and stimulate creativity. An original 30-page manual is included.
