Usui Shiki Ryoho 1st Degree Reiki is a four day course that empowers you with a life-long connection to the healing universal life energy known as Reiki. The course also gives you a form of practice, so that you can treat yourself, family, friends animals and plants. It is a simple practice that is easy to learn and can enhance your health and wellbeing and that of those around you. Reiki is a healing art that anyone can learn – it’s simply a matter of choice.
