Professional Reiki Practitioner Foundation Course
for Usui Shiki Ryoho Reiki students

at Mill Street Clinic, Ludlow, Shropshire

13 - 15 April, 22 - 24 June and 14 - 16 September 2018

Times for each weekend: Friday 6.30 - 9.30 pm, Saturday 10 am - 5 pm, Sunday 10 am - 1 pm

Course Overview

After some time of Reiki practice many people wish to share the gift of Reiki treatments more widely than their family and friends.  Giving treatments to members of the public requires a different approach to treating those we know and preparation for this is important.  The course is based on the Reiki NOS and CNHC Core Curriculum so that those who complete the course will find it easier to become verified practitioners and thereby be eligible to join the CNHC Reiki register.

Course Content Includes:

  • Exploring what it means to be a professional Reiki practitioner and the journey that can lead there.
    "I knew this course was definitely for me when I realised I was a public practitioner not a 'professional' one"

  • The importance of self care through regular self treatment. 
    "It was good to go over the importance and benefits of self treatment in non-practitioner/practitioner scenarios"

  • Review the Usui Shiki Ryoho Reiki treatment practice and how it applies to public treatments, including a review of the standard Usui Shiki Ryoho treatment form, seated treatment and additional hand positions

  • How to prepare and manage your treatment space

  • How to deal with clients appropriately
    "exploring, expanding on different considerations, record keeping etc benefiting from Kate's experience"

  • What is expected of you as a professional
    "a feeling of responsibility, stimulating, challenging"

  • Basic anatomy and physiology.
    "I really enjoyed the anatomy and physiology session, which was funny, as I have an aversion to it, it's like another language, however, the session was fun, and we learnt by colouring in, labelling and using our previous knowledge. I've been in other A & P courses for yoga and massage but not much has ever stayed in my brain! I was unexpectedly surprised to find that session one of the best ones as linked reiki to very specific areas of the body and how we can treat that area."

  • The flow of money including setting fees
    "Surprisingly a much deeper subject than just "what to charge or not to charge". I learnt a discovered attitudes to money I hadn't acknowledged."

  • Legal requirements
    "completely informative - valuable, important information"

  • How to let people know what you are offering (marketing)
    "I learnt so much from this module. Up until now I hadn't realised how many ways I could let people know I am a Reiki practitioner."

  • Next steps

Is this for me?
