Reiki One

Contact Melanie for venue and price

10am-5pm, Saturday 5th February 2022
10am-2pm, Sunday 6th February 2022

This is the first introduction to being attuned to Reiki. Usually at this stage you have been drawn to a Reiki Master/Teacher in your area.

It may have been because you have had a Reiki treatment yourself and it really helped you emotionally, physically, mentally, or spiritually and you would like to take this journey to help yourself on a daily basis, or you would like to take further study and become a practitioner later on.

Whatever your reason, you have been drawn to study the energy healing that is Reiki.

On this 2-day course you will learn all about the history of Reiki and how it all started.

We will do meditation to prepare ourselves for your attunements. You will receive attunements which will prepare you to use this wonderful energy. After you receive the beautiful energy, you will be able to use on family and friends.

You can call on this healing energy at any moment in your life and once you have been attuned to this energy it is with you for the rest of your life.

The more you use it, the stronger it will become, and you will work more intuitively.

Things we will cover in this course:

– A full introduction to Reiki – The History, What It Is and How it works.
– Meditation and Attunement to Reiki 1
– What we can heal with Reiki
– What are Chakras and how they are used in Reiki
– Effects and what you should expect during and after your 21-day cleansing process after your attunements.
– Auras – an overview
– Hand positions for a self-Reiki treatment so you can use this energy treatment on yourself.
– You will also be shown how to use hand positions on friends and family.
– Basic Anatomy and Physiology involved with Reiki.
– You will also have practical sessions to practice on yourself and others.

This course includes a Reiki certificate and manual to show you have completed your Level 1.


Reiki 2

Contact Melanie for venue and price

10am-5pm, Saturday 21st May 2022
10am-2pm, Sunday 22nd May 2022

If you are doing your Level 2 Reiki, then you would have completed your Level 1 Reiki course either with myself or another Reiki Master/Teacher.

You would’ve already learnt the benefits of Reiki from your previous course which you may have done recently or a long time ago. This does not matter as we do summarise the teachings of Level 1 in the Reiki Second Degree.

It is recommended that you have at least gap of at least 3 months between your Level 1 and 2 in order for you to have got used to your healing energy.

Everyone is different as I took over a year to take my 2nd degree Reiki after my 1st.

Things that will be covered in your Level 2 Reiki:

– You will learn about the 3 symbols used in Usui Reiki and how to use them in healing yourself and others. These 3 symbols will help you in your self-treatments and will allow you to step up your energy when treating others.

The Power Symbol
Emotional and Mental Symbol
Distance Healing symbol

– This level of Reiki allows you to treat clients and charge them for the service you provide.
– Once you gain your insurance you can start treating others as a Practitioner.
– You will learn how to do distance Reiki on others and learn the different ways this can be achieved when your client cannot be with you.
– This level will help expand your awareness and your intuition whilst doing treatments and help with self-confidence. It helps with understanding who you are and what you want to manifest in your life.
– Helps you understand more of how Reiki can help with overall wellbeing.
– Setting up your healing space and own Reiki practice
– Guided meditation that you can use on yourself ( and your clients) before and after your /their treatment
– Scanning energies before treatments on others
– You will learn how to do consultations with clients and note down details regarding medical history etc. (This is required for your insurance). This is also good to find out how clients re feeling before their treatment mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually.
