This course will teach students about Reiki and how to do Reiki Hand Placements. This is a great career that  helps to improve general health and wellbeing as well as to reduce anxiety or stress. The techniques covered in this course may be used for self-treatment or treatments for others.  

The goal of this course is to encourage students to learn Reiki Hand Placements so that you can use this amazing method of healing for yourself or others if you are so inspired. This is a beginning Reiki course, so we will assume that you do not have any background in Reiki. We will cover basic topics useful for the practice of Reiki, including Reiki Hand Placements, energy concerning using Reiki, Reiki principles, and Reiki techniques.

Introduction to Reiki 

What is Reiki? Reiki (pronounced ray-kee) is an alternative medicine used as a complementary therapy. Although it is a spiritual practice, it is not considered to be religious. A Reiki practitioner will use Reiki Hand Placements to channel healing energy, a form of ki, through the palms of their hands.

Reiki is considered a Japanese practice today, but other cultures have used Reiki. For instance, people of ancient Egypt were believed to practice a form of Reiki. Reiki techniques and methods were also known to have originated in the Orient, where they are still used today.

Although Reiki is not scientifically based and research has not proven the techniques to cure disease, Reiki treatments may be effective in the treatment of many human conditions, including stress, anxiety, and body aches and illnesses caused by a multitude of factors. Many Reiki practitioners believe that Reiki treatments are particularly healing. Stories abound regarding people and pets being healed by Reiki.

Reiki is not meant to replace regular doctor visits, check-ups or other treatments suggested by your health care provider. As a matter of fact, Reiki is often used in addition to traditional Western medical treatments and other forms of alternative medicine to treat a variety of illnesses and conditions in conjunction with one another. Reiki works in harmony with medications, surgery, psychological care or other medical treatments. 

Reiki Hand Placements are similar to other practices,such as Chinese medicine, Chi Gong, and holistic medicine. You could say that Reiki is a combination of Eastern practices that have been used for thousands of years. Reiki Hand Placements share some similarities to acupuncture and other practices, though no needles or massage is used in its techniques.  

Who can learn Reiki?

Reiki has been taught across various ages, cultures, and stages of health. It is said that Reiki is easy to learn and many people can learn Reiki. You can most likely learn Reiki techniques whether you are young, elderly, in between or whether you are healthy or not. 

What kinds of ailments can Reiki help heal?

Reiki is used to address different kinds of ailments. You can use Reiki to decrease your stress and relax. There are stories of Reiki healing all kinds of medical challenges, such as sprains, colds, flus, headaches, sinus troubles, or anxiety. Reiki has also been practiced to treat heart conditions, cancer, respiratory problems, infertility, or other conditions. Some people say Reiki speeds up healing and can even enhance the healing process and reduce length of stays in hospitals. 

Can Reiki be used for pets and plants?

Reiki can definitely be used for pets, and even plants! Some animals, such as cats, are said to like Reiki if they need it, so we will include information about using Reiki on your pet later on in this course. Reiki may also be used for smaller animals, insects or even machines like your computer or tempermental printer.

Can I use Reiki on myself?

Yes, definitely. You can use Reiki to heal yourself or recover from a variety of conditions much faster. How amazing is that?

How is a Reiki Treatment Given?

During a Reiki treatment, you remain fully clothed (except your shoes) . Most often, you will be lying down and relaxed. You might be lying down on a massage table or on the floor, but it doesn't really matter - what's most comfortable for you is just fine. You might want to wear loose clothing and take off any jewelry you're wearing so that you are completely comfortable. Some Reiki treatments may involve dimming the lights or meditative music. Other Reiki treatments may offer complete silence for total relaxation.

Is Reiki practiced only hands-on?

Reiki is traditionally used hands-on, but Reiki can also be used in a non-touch form, where the practitioner's hands are near the client but not touching the client. Reiki has even been used to help heal people from far away.

How many levels are Reiki are there?

Reiki is often taught in three levels. In the first level, basic Reiki Hand Placement techniques, basic theories and procedures are taught. In this first level, student obtain guidance about receiving attunements. In the second level, students receive guidance about the symbols in Reiki that are thought to strengthen Reiki treatments- one particular symbol may help using Reiki at a distance. The third level of Reiki is considered the master level. Completion of the third level entitles the student to become a Reiki master.
