Reiki Training Certification

Learn Reiki for self-treatment, treatment of your family, friends, pets or your community through volunteering or starting a private practice. 

Learn for Self-Treatment

We all have stress. Treat yourself with Reiki to bring calmness, help you move forward in your life or avoid job burnout.

Learn for Your Family

Help your family and friends with Reiki. As little as 5 minutes of Reiki can help a family member or a co-worker with a headache.

Children love the healing energy of Reiki ...

Kirstie, Reiki Level II Practitioner shared about her 5 year old son and his anxiety.

"When I tucked my son into bed tonight, he told me how he felt power inside him."

Learn for Your Pets

Treating your pets with Reiki strengthens a beautiful bond, helps them with anxiety, aggression or general wellness. Watch your pet take a 'Reiki sigh' when you see them relax into the healing energy of Reiki.

  • Who learns Reiki?
    Anyone interested in learning Reiki for the purpose of self-treatment or treatment of others. My students are mothers, fathers, teens, grandparents, individuals with chronic conditions or family caregivers. Some of my students want to include elements of Reiki in their profession such as school teachers, social workers, counselors, massage therapists, doctors, nurses, to name a few. We are all everyday people like you and me!
  • What background do I need in order to learn Reiki?
    There is no previous background nor skills required to learn Reiki. Anyone can learn Reiki. To date, my youngest student was 11 years old and my oldest student was 88 years old. Through the Reiki Attunement, the Reiki Master passes onto the student the ability for Reiki energy to flow from the student's hands. Therefore, the ability to practice Reiki is not dependent on the student's background nor skills. It is through class discussion and practice you learn various techniques and hand positions. I always tell my students, "It's not about you ... you are a pathway for the Reiki energy to flow ... the Reiki energy does the work."
  • When would I use Reiki?
    You can use Reiki in your every day living! First of all, treat yourself for your own self-care and wellness. Treat your children/grandchildren that are having problems sleeping, low self-esteem, anxiety, fears or even a boo-boo. Treat other family members, friends, and even your pets. As little as 5 - 10 minutes of Reiki can be beneficial for a co-worker that is stressed or has a headache. I am sure you know of someone with anxiety, going through a relationship breakup, living with the loss of a loved one, has chronic conditions, recovering from surgery or undergoing cancer treatments that you could give a few minutes of Reiki to while they are sitting in a chair or laying on a couch. Reiki can be done any where and for any amount of time ... even while you are watching TV with your hand around your partner or child's shoulder or on their lap. We all show acts of kindness by sending a card, listening to a friend that is going through rough times, or cooking a meal for someone. Now you can add the beautiful gift of Reiki to your offering. You can also send distant Reiki across town or across the world to a person. We all have family or friends that live far away from us ... you can help them too. If you are a first responder or a medical provider, you can use Reiki for your self-care to avoid job burnout, cleanse negative energy out of a room after each patient, put healing energy into a room, and even carry on a conversation while Reiki energy is flowing to the person.
  • How many levels of training are there for Reiki?
    There are 3 levels of Reiki Certification (Refer to the full course descriptions on this web page.) Reiki Level I Practitioners can give themselves Reiki treatments and treat others. Reiki Level II Practitioners have extra tools they can use to amplify the energy that flows from their hands, send energy that helps heal emotions, and the ability to send Reiki energy distantly across town or across the world to a person. I call this the "creative class" because the three Reiki II symbols bring so much creativity to using Reiki in your daily living. Reiki Level III Practitioners (Reiki Masters) receive the higher Master energies, work with crystals, and other higher frequency healing techniques. Reiki Level III Practitioners have the ability to pass Reiki onto students (teach Reiki). Someone could be a Reiki Master, but not teach. Becoming a Reiki Master Teacher is optional. How far do you go with learning Reiki? You may take Reiki Level I & II Training and never go any further. As a Reiki II Practitioner, you will have amazing tools to help yourself and help others! Maybe months or years down the road you may feel guided to take Reiki Level III Training. You take Reiki as far as you are interested in; you do not have to have a path in mind ... let Reiki guide you!

About Cyndy's Classes

As founder of the American Academy of Reiki Training at the Center for Reiki Wellness and Hypnosis, I am dedicated to delivering excellence in all levels of Reiki Training Certification. I have over 30 years experience supporting adult learning. Teaching Reiki is a natural extension of me ... my passion of serving and empowering others on their Reiki journey.

 

My belief is in small group environments to foster learning, sharing, class bonding, and experiential healing. My classes are either PRIVATE training one on one or GROUP training (maximum 4 students) for individuals or work groups.

 

I provide sound teaching practices to meet everyone's learning style through discussion, demonstration, and doing (hands-on practice) ... the 3 D's. I deliver attention to detail in class lectures and course materials. I offer patience and welcome questions to ensure everyone's learning. I also teach through stories ... sharing practical examples of my years working with Reiki clients.

 

It is my nature to go above and beyond to make sure each student has the knowledge and tools to integrate Reiki in their life. Throughout the training, I verify each student is confident in demonstrating their new knowledge. I allow my students to learn from themselves, other students, and of the utmost, learn from the Reiki energy itself. Learning Reiki is not being book smart ... it is jumping in and using your Reiki in everyday living.
