Reiki Levels I & II Training Course & Certification

What is Reiki?

Reiki, in a nutshell, is the Japanese word for sacred or spiritual energy healing, but what does that mean? 

“Ki” or Qi, Prana, or Chi, is the life force energy that exists within every living thing. “Rei” means universal. So, Reiki means universal life force energy. 

The Ascension Reiki Certification Class teaches students ancient subtle energy healing techniques under the guidance of a Reiki practitioner. You and your practitioner Use a gentle touch, near contact, or intention from a distance to tap into, guide, and channel the energy within the chakras, meridians, nadis, and the subtle energy body. Students learn to remove energy blocks, build up the energy within the body, and heal the body all at the same time. This technique can be used for stress reduction, relaxation, and a way to promote healing on many levels.

What does Reiki feel like and how does it work?

Most of the time Reiki is performed on a massage table (fully clothed) but sometimes it can be done in a chair or from a distance. A practitioner will use various hand positions over the body to direct the Reiki energy in the body. The timing of each hand position is determined intuitively by the practitioner based on the energy the perceive flowing in each place. A gentle touch is the most contact direct that will ever be applied in Reiki, there is no massage or pressure, or manipulation of the body whatsoever.

The reiki itself might feel like nothing in the moment, or it might feel tingly, warm, or cool. It’s different for every person, but it is considered subtle energy so the effects while very noticeable for some individuals are often felt more subtly but profoundly in others. You might find you have an emotional release or feel light and joyful afterward. You might be tired or energized. Your experiences will be completely unique to you since Reiki works where it’s needed most on each person. You may notice sensations in various parts of the body as the energy flows through and begins to clear the energetic blocks and promote healing in places where you maybe didn’t even know you were still holding tension. Emotional clearing is very common.

Do I have to prepare to practice or receive Reiki?

There is nothing you need to do prior to receiving Reiki, but in order to understand how to work with Reiki energy, you will need to study under a Reiki Master who can attune you to hold space and channel Reiki energy as a practitioner. The healing art of Reiki healing is handed down in levels 1, 2, 3, and 4 to give you time to learn, attune, practice, and understand each level of the practice before learning the next level and becoming a Reiki Master yourself. We attune levels 1 and 2 together, and 3 and 4 together in two separate training courses.

How can I benefit from Reiki?

Reiki is a technique based on the idea of unseen life force energy that flows through everything, if a person’s life force energy is low they can become more likely to get sick and feel stress. Reiki promotes relaxation, stress reduction, symptom relief, and can ease you into a mediative state to allow natural relief of pain and tension. Reiki can help with tissue and bone health after injury or surgery, it can stimulate the immune system and ease illnesses, generally supporting overall wellbeing.
