Reiki is a healing practice that can be safely used by anyone to enhance physical, emotional, and spiritual wellness. This traditional Japanese healing practice is widely used to promote healing and relieve stress by helping the body to find its balance, which helps the body’s self-healing mechanisms to function better.
Learning to practice Reiki
The technical part of Reiki is very simple and therefore, it’s easy to learn to practice. The ability to practice is not dependent on the person’s intellectual capacity nor does it require prior therapy experience like meditation. Learning to practice is, however, just the beginning. Then it is up to the Reiki practitioner to practice daily self-treatment. Not only will this help keep the practitioner balanced, but also this is the primary way that a practitioner develops.
Various schools and training institutions in UK offer courses in Reiki. Everyone starts at the same level—First degree—whether you are learning to practice for self-care or you want to become a professional practitioner.
Tips for finding a good Reiki class
- Find a reputable Reiki Master
Reiki masters have different approaches. It’s important to take the time to find a Reiki master who is well trained and experienced, and with whom you are comfortable. You can ask your friends and relatives or a local holistic health center for referrals, or you can browse the web. You can check an online therapy directory to find a list of professional Reiki instructors in your area. But no matter how you go about finding a Reiki master, it is important to satisfy yourself that he or she is credible and reputable.
- Enroll in a class that fits your schedule
Look for a class that is 10-12 hours long arranged at a schedule that is convenient for you. You want to make sure you have enough in-class practice time to feel confident enough to continue your practice at home.
