What is Reiki?
Reiki is a gentle hands-on technique for stress reduction, relaxation, emotional and energetic re-balancing and healing. It is based on the principle that all matter and life is made up of flowing energy. When our physical body experiences pain, tension or illness, it is because our energy is blocked, unbalanced and diminished within our body. The Reiki practitioner directs energy from the external environment to areas where it may be needed in the body of the recipient. Reiki helps us to regain our balance and natural harmony within ourselves.
Become a Reiki healer
Becoming a Reiki healer will give you the ability heal others and yourself. In addition to its practical applications, Reiki is an entire spiritual path unto itself and a powerful vehicle for self- development. Every time you give a treatment, energy flows through you to the recipient, creating a cycle of giving and receiving. As a healer, you will become more sensitive to your own energy, the energy of others and the surrounding environment. You will also develop a strong intuition and clarity, creating a closer connection with your own inner strength and spirit.

The clinic includes a brainstorming session in the group about each case in order to be exposed to a variety of healing processes and learn from each other.

- Emmalee F, USAI took the first two Reiki courses with Pazit and it has awakened a side of my spirituality I didn’t know existed. Having the chance to live, work and practice with them has given me a sense of fulfillment and of family. I now know that healing the body and the mind together is my life path.
