13Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by “laying on hands” and is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one’s “life force energy” is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy. The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words – Rei which means “God’s Wisdom or the Higher Power” and Ki which is “life force energy”. Learning the First Degree (Level 1) enables you to pass Reiki (give treatments) to family and friends.

Level 1 students spend an initial period receiving broad information on Usui Reiki. This includes the history, the nature of the energy, how it is passed on and how it interacts with the body.  Following the Level 1 attunements, the Reiki energy begins to work within the student.   The combination of the teaching and the Reiki attunements naturally stimulate the student to work with Reiki on all levels of healing: Mind, Body, Emotions, Thoughts, Feelings and Spiritually or Intuitively.

The other main aspect of the teaching is the Practical side. After a demonstration there is a practice session.  The Manual provided covers the course content and so is always there for as an invaluable reference. Following your attunement you will begin to be aware of changes occurring on all levels.  Support for your development is ongoing.  Although the main reason for Level 1 is for personal use, you are able to give Reiki treatments to family and friends.

There are no prior requirements to join the course other than a desire to be connected to this natural healing energy.


The Usui Reiki Level 2 Practitioner Level Course builds on your Reiki Level 1.  Reiki Level 2 is also known as Reiki Second Degree and Reiki Practitioner. Usui Reiki Level 2, enables you to connect to a greater volume of Reiki energy.  Reiki Level 2 is for those who are considering setting up a Reiki Practice to treat others as well as self.  You must have taken Reiki Level 1 & have a certificate of completion, to take Reiki Level 2, Practitioner course.

FEEDBACK:   Hi Suzan, I’m feeling fantastic, I’ve been practicing self healing almost every day (I’ve missed 2 days).  Both times I missed, I really noticed it the next day!

On Sunday I went to a friend’s home for lunch and practiced giving reiki to her and her daughter and partner.  The feedback was amazing.  While I was giving Deb reiki around her abdomen I felt a swirling/sucking (like a whirlpool) on her left side and then again felt it on her right side in a lower position on her abdomen.  I felt that I needed to stay in those 2 positions for longer, until the swirling/sucking stopped and the heat cooled.  When I mentioned to her both of those positions, she told me that she suffers from Irritable Bowel Syndrome and those 2 places are her particular spots of intense pain.

When working on her partner I felt that I needed to do extra hand positions around his feet and ankles it seemed that he needed a lot more energy there.  When I asked him if he had trouble with his feet, he said that he has always had a lot of trouble with his feet.  After treatment, he said that his feet have never felt so good!

So I guess you could say that I am having a FANTASTIC journey learning the more subtle signs and getting more confident in trusting my intuition.  [Sam U]


wings6The Reiki Masters consists of learning the Master Symbol other relevant Reiki facts and receiving the attunement.. There is often some discussion and teachings about ethical spiritual and social issues that might concern Reiki Masters. The Class will also address some of the practical methods of teaching Reiki to others in the future if that is the student’s intention. Many Reiki practitioners want to take the Master level to complete their Reiki training. Please do not  feel your spiritual development and personal evolution is now complete! This is an

ongoing process. This is a new beginning for sharing Reiki with others and for  opportunities to enhance your own development. Being A Reiki Master does not mean  you are better or wiser or more enlightened than anyone else it just means that you  have decided to fully encompass all that REIKI can offer and teach as  dictated by Dr. Usui.

Plus you will be qualified to transfer the  ability to transmit Reiki attunement to others if you  wish to take the next step. I feel that a Reiki Master should make an effort to live in an ethical way and to be responsible for their actions and intentions . When This class is completed and after the attunement has been received the student will be a certified Reiki Master.

FEEDBACK:  “It has been an honour and a privilege to have Suzan initiate me as a Reiki Master.  The whole experience has been one that I will treasure a lifetime, thank you Suzan”. Tracey M 


There are many reasons people decide to teach Reiki.  Some have been a Practitioner for a  long time and wish to pass on all their knowledge, others like myself, are keen to teach and not necessarily become a Reiki Practitioner! We like to break down the MASTERS into Masters and a separate MASTER TEACHER workshop. A half day course assisting with how to Teach, Attune and conduct a Reiki Healing Workshop themselves.
