COURSE OUTLINE:
The Reiki Level 1 Class is based on the Japanese energy healing modality of USUI
REIKI, it follows the traditional protocol, introducing Reiki intentions, symbols, hand
placements and initiation into Reiki level 1. Included is a short Chakra balancing outline.
( It is recommended to first attend the CHAKRA BALANCING CLASS)
DURING THE THEORY/ POWERPOINT SECTION of this class the students will learn
the history, principles, symbols and benefits of REIKI, including the anatomy of the
energy bodies, Chakras, glands and organs.
DURING THE PRACTICE SESSION of this class, the students will practice on each
other, learning the client consultation, intentions, use of the symbols, the hand
placements, balancing the chakras, possibly adding breath, aroma, sound and crystals.
The students will practice how to give and receive an entire REIKI session of 1 hr.

LEARNING OUTCOMES & BENEFITS:
One of the main benefits of Reiki Initiation level 1 for Massage Therapists is the ability
to " channel " increased harmonious energy into their clients and to avoid absorbing
unharmonious energy released by their client during the massage.
Reiki energy can be administered to food, water and plants, resulting in a "blessing" of
harmonious energy frequencies.
For people and animals there are many benefits including:
• Promoting general well being and stress relief, resulting in a stronger immune system
and deeper sleep
• Helping to relieve chronic pain and to recover from injuries or medical treatments
• Healing emotional traumas
• Regulating blood pressure, soothing tight muscles, relieving allergies and balancing
hormones
These benefits have been widely recognized and Reiki is now offered in many medical
establishments and hospices.
A continued practice of Reiki level 1 may awaken a deep interest for advanced
professional training in other energy healing modalities.

TIMELINE BREAKDOWN:
15 MIN Guided meditation and affirmation
2 HRS POWER POINT/LECTURE: the history, principles & symbols Reiki, the anatomy
of the five energy bodies, the Chakras, the endocrine system and organs. Client
