Reiki is a Japanese form of energy healing and a life-tool for people of all ages and backgrounds to promote healing on physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual levels. “Rei” means God’s Wisdom or Higher Power, while “Ki” means Life Force Energy.

Reiki is a practice that involves directing life force energy using reiki symbols, hand postures, and other techniques aimed at achieving healing and balance. Some benefits of reiki energy include grounding, deep relaxation, emotional healing, reduced physical pain, lower anxiety levels, improved mood, better sleep, and deep inner connection.

If you’ve dreamed of becoming a reiki practitioner yourself, you can get certified at Nicol’s Reiki I Training at Yoga Under the Palms Kailua on January 14, with a follow-up graduation ceremony on February 10.

During this two-part training, you’ll become attuned to reiki at the first degree, meaning you’ll connect to Reiki Source and learn to channel reiki through your hands for your own personal healing.

  • Uncover the subtle layers of the body and auric field.
  • Learn the reiki precepts.
