The practice of Reiki Ryoho (hands-on healing) is very easy to learn and is useful as a daily practice for spiritual growth as well as for self-care. The ability to self-treat is especially helpful for people experiencing health issues and to grow or deepen their spirituality. Caregivers, Doctors, and Nurses are also encouraged to learn Reiki to provide supportive, palliative touch for their patients as well as for their friends, family, or own self-care.
Once trained in Reiki, you will have it for the remainder of your life to use in whichever way you choose: for self-treatment in order to maintain balance and good health; as a spiritual practice; to help friends, family, and pets; or to become a professional practitioner, giving Reiki treatments to others. You can never lose the ability to practice Reiki and it never 'fades away.’
Many students initially take Reiki training just for self-healing and many find lasting physical relief of symptoms with daily self-treatment. But with continued practice, they also soon find themselves with a calmer, more centered, state of mind, leading to a deepening of their spiritual awareness and a desire to help others by sharing Reiki treatments with friends, family and pets, and frequently just about everything they can get their hands on!
