Reiki is a simple and fast way to relieve stress, pain and many ailments and its benefits are remarkable

‘My long-term pain has disappeared, I’m sleeping deeply for the first time in years, I’ve recovered from illness so much more quickly it’s amazing, my work stress has calmed with wonderful results, my long-term chronic anxiety has gone’

“I’ve had 2 years of constant pain from a dislocated rib disappear and not returned since I learnt Reiki

My sleep patterns have improved noticeably – my mind is incredibly calm, I don’t wake up and get up continually throughout the night (which I’ve done for years), I can sleep much longer – this is amazing for me

The pain from aching leg muscles I had after a long walk, completely disappeared; incredible sinus pain reduced after 2 self-treatments, the flu virus I had didn’t last for weeks and I only needed a couple of days off work to recuperate

My long-term personal and professional anxiety has gone – it’s the first time for years I feel present and patient at work in the classroom and my class is automatically becoming calmer and staying that way

I no longer feel on constantly overwhelmed and overloaded at work – it’s now surprisingly easy to be focused, clear and present to the next task ahead

Until I learnt Reiki, I wasn’t aware of how many negative conversations I was having and the unhappiness and stress it was causing me/us … in just two weeks of giving myself daily Reiki self-treatments I’m deliberately choosing positive, constructive and uplifting conversations – YES!!

I’m loving Reiki and giving myself self-treatments … I’m loving how Reiki is helping my family to calm, sleep better and have pain relief

Tracey, Usui Reiki 1st Degree Student, Hamilton 2019

A remarkable and permanent healing modality, Reiki may be learnt in Degrees or levels, which are usually taught over a weekend.

The Reiki energy is passed from the teacher to the student following one or more attunements – the ability to channel Reiki is instant, palpable and lasts a lifetime after the First Degree Reiki teaching.

One of the main reasons people are drawn to using Reiki on themselves is it’s tremendous contribution as a very simple and effective tool for fast stress management

‘I feel calmer and much less anxious and I’ve noticed I get less angry, worried and agitated than I used to. I have less negative thoughts about myself and others – sometimes I have no thoughts at all … and I’ve started being thankful to God every day

My relationships are so much happier and I’m so much calmer

I loved learning Reiki – it was a wonderful experience for me’.

Arwinder, Reiki 1st Degree, 2019

Anyone can learn Reiki for themselves and those they care about – your self, others, animals, plants, the land

What you can do and achieve with Reiki is endless, simple, gentle and very effective

‘The attunements were wonderful and the experience of giving and receiving Reiki very powerful

How do you describe stillness and calm that is also so alive with potential and love? 

It feels like such an enormous privilege’               

Jann Tighe, Reiki Third Degree, Auckland 2018

Reiki is practical and easy to use anywhere and everywhere

Practical, easy to use anywhere (including in front of tv, at the movies or when travelling), Reiki works fast on balancing and harmonising all aspects of the physiological, emotional and intellectual bodies

Life flows more easily, pain diminishes faster, healing is accelerated and the mind and thoughts flow more calmly

After the attunements to First Degree Reiki, you will be empowered to give Reiki to anything with which you will have direct contact – primarily, this includes you 

Anything you place your hands on will automatically receive Reiki simply by touch – food, water, medicines, crystals, people, plants, animals, anything

You learn how to give Reiki treatments to yourself, others and professionally (please note that giving Reiki treatments professionally is optional).

‘Many things changed very quickly in so many areas of my life, including my work achievements and life-long overcoming of migraines …

The one I didn’t see coming (which just happened spontaneously) was that I lost all desire for my daily glasses of wine!

Months later, this is still the case – amongst many other amazing benefits of Reiki, this unexpected ‘side-effect’ of Reiki, really blew me away!’

‘So many long-term healings – in my body, my relationships, even my efficiency at work!

The pain from my life-long migraine headaches has disappeared – amazingly if I feel like one might be coming, I give myself Reiki and it goes away

My sleep patterns have changed from the Day 1 – now I sleep so soundly and if I wake up I go straight back to sleep after a few minutes of Reiki

My relationships with my children have improved noticably

I feel more relaxed, peaceful, continuously calm … even under pressure at work

My mind works a lot more efficiently and I can do more work in the same time! Nothing seems to phase me!

I’m much more aware of my inner world – my emotions, sensations and insights than I was before learning Reiki

I’m truly amazed at how much Reiki has and is doing for me – my family, work, land even the animals on our farm are healthier and happier’
