Chakra Balance & Chakra Massage

The Chakra Balance & Chakra Massage class is a study of the energy flow through the body’s main Chakras, or temporal points of Chi. This course will teach you to understand the Chakras, their main functions, and how to “massage” them to achieve their fullest potential as energy actuators. You will learn to center your own Chi, as well as guiding your client or partner, bringing greater balance to life in an Ageless tradition.

Reiki I

Holistic therapyPre-requisite: None, other than a desire to help yourself and others!

Reiki I is an introduction to Usui Reiki. We will look at the history, different disciplines, and how to begin your practice or add this to an existing practice. By the end of the day you are attuned as a Level I Practitioner with the tools to facilitate a Reiki session on yourself and others. The beginning principles are taught along with the hand positions, and basic healing techniques. This is a wonderful way to get in touch with Reiki.

Perfect for the exploratory student, massage therapist, or for anyone wanting to learn this ancient healing art. Reiki is also wonderful for your pets. I invite you to begin your journey here.

Reiki II is an advanced class for Usui Reiki practitioners. In this class we cover advanced techniques and explore some of the deeper meanings behind the observances, spiritual mechanisms, and energy re-flowing that you will be practicing. Further exploration includes the symbols and how to use them, including conducting sessions across distance and time.

This class requires some previous knowledge and experience in Reiki, along with your Level I Attunement Certificate. Please contact me if you have any questions.

Reiki I & II Comprehensive

safe earthPre-requisite: None

This class essentially combines the Reiki I and II together and is a bit more intense. (Please review Levels I & II above.) I really recommend taking the two classes separately, but for those who may have previous experience with other healing modalities, or with Reiki and would like a comprehensive refresher, this is a perfect option. There have also been many students who feel drawn to take this class and complete it with great success. We will start covering all the basics and rapidly add complexity and advanced techniques.

Ethics and standards of practice are emphasized.

By the end of the class you are attuned as Reiki Level II practitioner and receive your certificate.

If you are interested in the NCBTMB continuing education, this class provides 10 hours.

Reiki Master

The most demanding and rewarding of the Reiki classes. Mastering Reiki is a guided, self-journey. The Reiki Master’s accountability to the student continues long after the class is finished. The responsibility should not be taken lightly. In this class, you are given all the tools needed to become a Reiki Master. We  cover the most advanced techniques, while tackling some of the most challenging quests. Through hard work, practice, and attunement, you can become a Reiki Master. It is advisable that the practitioner has become acclimated to practicing their Reiki for at least six months to a year before advancing to the Master level of the Usui System of Natural Energy Healing.
