A decade ago only the most dedicated follower of alternative healing methods and Eastern religions would have likely heard of Reiki. Today, that is no longer the case because as studies continue to show verifiable positive results in patients who actively use less-mainstream methods, more people want to learn about what practices like Reiki have to offer. This means there is a huge potential to help others by taking the time to learn reiki and incorporate it into a wellness program.
Reiki can be a beneficial addition to a number of businesses. It combines well in clinics that offer massage therapy or acupuncture. It is a useful program to add to what is available in a spa and can even be offered by individual practitioners in their own businesses.
Home study courses for Reiki can be found across the Internet. Before beginning any class, always check for any complaints or reviews that have been posted about that website or group. Look for instructors that are affiliated with legitimate Reiki organizations. It may be necessary to meet in-person with a Reiki master from time to time to fully gather all of the knowledge and attunement needed to become a master, but most of the classes will be able to be done online.
Students of Reiki will have to learn about nutrition, health, crystals and more. They will need to be able to understand the need for meditation, spiritual awakening and how energies impact health and well-being. In addition to the education found online, they should look for a local Master who can provide hands-on lessons and consider joining any local groups. These organizations will often offer workshops that can help the new Reiki Master to become more knowledgeable.
While it is not recommended that anyone forgo traditional medical care with the expectation that reiki will heal them, many still see this process as a valuable part of their health care. It is a great responsibility to offer this service to clients and it should only be done by those who want to provide accurate and effective treatment. Only those who truly believe, are dedicated, and are willing to devote the time necessary to learn everything needed should consider this career path.
