Reiki Courses

Reiki has become one of the most effective energy healing techniques, with an increasing number of people turning to this powerful therapy for a more holistic approach to healing and personal growth. The beauty of this therapy lies in its simplicity! Reiki is a natural healing technique that employs only one’s hands for the practice itself. The therapist channels healing energy to the client to activate the natural self-healing process, allowing the client’s body to heal and restore physically, mentally and emotionally.

  • Introduction to the Chakra System

    The Chakras are part of our subtle anatomy. They are junction points between mind and matter. Through our subtle bodies, our minds and spirits can communicate with our bodies.

    The Chakras bring the energy “down” from the insubstantial to the substantial; that is, they make the energy denser so we can “communicate” with it, and vice versa.

    Learn to understand what the Chakras energy has to teach you, and it can help you to know how your energy is drained and can teach you skills to energize you and your life.
