Reiki 4 Teacher training is only for those who’ve taken Reiki 3 at Relax4Life and who want to learn the step by step process of teaching all levels of Usui Reiki as taught by Neal Harris. This includes learning to attune/initiate for each class as well as discussing the many components that make up a successful Reiki teacher and class experience.

Reiki is an energy-balancing technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing on all levels (mental, emotional, physical and spiritual). It’s administered by placing the hands on or around another person, animal, plant or oneself. It’s based on the idea that we can easily learn to harness, enhance and direct life force energy (which is always around and flowing through us) for the highest benefit of others and yourself. If your life force energy is low, then you’re more likely to get sick or feel stress. If it’s high, you’re more capable of being happy and healthy. Reiki promotes this higher level of life force energy, which greatly improves the chances for healing to occur on any and all levels.
The Reiki that is practiced and taught at Relax4Life is a blending of the following styles; Traditional Usui, Japanese, Tibetan and Karuna®.
The ability to perform Reiki is passed on from teacher to student via a formal initiation and education process. Many people seek Reiki therapy for relaxation and energy balancing. Because of its universal appeal, Reiki is practiced by individuals from all walks of life and religious beliefs. Receiving Reiki therapy is like the relaxed feeling your body gets from a massage or soaking in a warm tub, only that with Reiki you remain fully clothed and the practitioner gently lays their hands on or around various areas of your body to help balance your energy. Whether you want to add Reiki to an existing practice, start a new practice, use it for friends and family or your own emotional, spiritual and physical well being, it is an excellent skill to have.
