My Reiki courses are designed to suit anyone, regardless of experience and background. Everybody is capable of learning to practice Reiki for themselves and others.
Becoming a professional Reiki practitioner or teacher is not something that happens overnight. Once you have done your training, it will take time and regular practice before you have the confidence and experience to do it as a profession. Some people go through all three levels with no intention of working professionally. This is fine, as you will benefit from each new level regardless of whether you wish to use Reiki professionally or personally.
There are three main levels for Reiki training. Many people do Reiki purely for themselves or their friends and family. You can start working with Reiki in this way as soon as you are connected to Reiki at 'First degree' level. The 'Second Degree' course takes your training that bit further and can be done for your own personal development or if you would like to reach a level acceptable for working with Reiki professionally.
The final level is 'Reiki Master' again this can be done to help with your own personal development as well as providing new skills when treating others or if you would like to teach.
