What is Reiki ?

Reiki (pronounced “ray-key”) is Japanese word used to describe a system of healing originally known as Usui Shiki Ryoho, or

The Usui Way by Dr Mikao Usui.  Reiki is a Japanese Energy-Balancing Method of “laying on of hands” to promote energy renewal and relaxation. Reiki treats the “whole person” by restoring balance on an emotional, mental, physical and spiritual level. 

Reiki is NOT a religion and people from all religions or none can benefit from Reiki.  Reiki is safe and will complement any form of traditional western medicine and holistic alternatives to ease pain, suffering, side effects, and supports recovery.

What is Karuna Reiki®?  

Karuna is a sanskrit word and it is translated to mean any action that is taken to diminish the suffering of others and could also be translated as COMPASSIONATE ACTION.  When individuals experience enlightenment, they report that all beings are known as one. Therefore, it is natural to extend compassionate action or Karuna to everyone without distinction because we are all one. As we help others and aid them in their healing process, all beings benefit. Because of the oneness of all beings, it is understood that Karuna is not only extended to others out of love, but also because it is an entirely logical thing to do.

 Karuna Reiki® works on the emotional and spiritual levels and also helps one become more grounded.  Karuna Reiki® prepares the client for deep healing which includes deeply seated issues

on the cellular level, and helps release negative patterns that are unconsciously used to insulate ourselves from the truth.  Karuna also heals the shadow self, fills the person with love, restores balance, and helps with grounding ~ ICRT Karuna Reiki®

KarunaTraining includes:  

•    Two attunements
•     Eight treatment symbols
•     Four master symbols
•     Reiki meditation to be aware of and heal the Shadow Self
